New Hearing Aids Website Serves as Educational Resource for Consumers
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 9, 2009 -- A newly launched website www.AdviceOnHearingAids.com is proving to be a valuable and informative resource for consumers seeking unbiased information on hearing aids. With so much information out there about hearing aids, and so many different brands, styles, types of technology, and opinions about which one is best, it can be a daunting task for a hearing-impaired consumer to make an informed decision on which product is right for him or her. This new site aims to alleviate the stress, hassle, and confusion that consumers are often faced with when seeking information on hearing aids.
AdviceOnHearingAids.com was developed to help consumers get the information they want about hearing aids and assist them in finding a trusted hearing loss professional in their area. The site, which is maintained by audiologists and hearing health care specialists, is an educational resource for consumers.
AdviceonHearingAids.com also brings professionals and patients together in a new and innovative way. Advice on Hearing Aids provides a hearing aid rating system, which allows patients to quickly compare hearing aids based on options, quality, price, and more. It also allows consumers to rate hearing aids and professionals based on their own experiences.
"A primary benefit of the site is the in-depth information regarding all the major brands of hearing aids and where to purchase them," said Dr. Kelly Calkins, Audiologist. "Patients can learn about the hearing aid options available and find an Advice approved hearing professional that they can trust."
The site also provides access to a variety of information about hearing loss, tinnitus, hearing aids, medical treatments, etc. Visitors can browse articles written by industry experts, download brochures with just a click of the mouse, and watch videos on selected products all on the same site..
The Advice team keeps the site up-to-date with the latest information on nearly every type of hearing aid and any new products that come on the market, making it easy for consumers to stay on the cutting edge of the latest advancements in hearing technology. Visitors can browse frequently asked questions, look up helpful information on hearing loss, and interact with other patients and clinics around the world in the Advice On Hearing Aids forum.
Advice on Hearing Aids also makes finding a hearing professional fast and easy, with a locator box on the left hand side of every page where consumers need to simply type in their zip code for a list of qualified hearing providers in their area. Professionals are encouraged to publish papers and articles to the site so patients can read them. Patients can also look at office photos and professional credentials, so the patient can get a feel for the professional before they even walk in the door.
"Advice On Hearing Aids is the most comprehensive hearing aid information site for both patients and providers," Dr. Calkins said. "Here at Advice, helping you find the information you need to make an informed decision about hearing aids is our main goal. We know it's a big decision and we're here to help."
