View consumer hearing aid experiences and make an informed purchasing decision.
(PRWEB) January 26, 2010 -- With so many manufacturers proclaiming their hearing aids to be “the best,” it can be difficult to know whom to believe. Thanks to the consumer forum featured on Advice on Hearing Aids, real-life information is now publicly available. Learn if an aid is worth the price tag and select the right hearing aid the first time by reading about real-life experiences and viewing consumer ratings.
“Advice on Hearing Aids exists to provide information, gather feedback from real patients and help consumers connect to trusted professionals in their area,” says Kelly C. Calkins, Au.D., co-owner of Advice on Hearing Aids. “Patients talk to other patients and audiologists in the Advice Forum to share their experiences.”
A huge step toward industry transparency, the forum removes the mystery that used to shroud a hearing aid purchase. Those browsing the full-scale site may view ratings and professional articles, search the site for a competitively priced aid, and choose among trusted care providers who have been pre-screened.
The last benefit is a huge one. Hearing aids are not easily personalized; they must be calibrated in order to work properly. Advice on Hearing Aids professionals collect provider data to give patients a choice. Learn about a provider before ever walking through his door, and pay no additional fee to have the hearing aids you’ve purchased through Advice on Hearing Aids calibrated.
"This is the new way – the informed way – to purchase hearing aids,” Calkins says. “The hearing aid industry has become accustomed to telling patients that it isn't important to consider different options, and today’s technology-savvy consumers are no longer accepting that as a rule.”
AdviceOnHearingAids.com is maintained by a network of Audiologists and Hearing Health Care Specialists with over 40 years of combined hearing aid fitting experience.
