At Harbor Hearing we recommend that you do whatever feels most comfortable for you but remember that our staff is always here to answer any questions and offer support along the way.
We offer a risk-free hearing aid trial and recommend scheduling follow-up visits during the first few weeks after receiving your hearing aids, and these visits along with regular maintenance and routine evaluations will help to keep your hearing healthy for years to come. The keys to your success rest in your patience while acclimating to your hearing aids and making sure that you communicate your needs so that we can calibrate your devices to achieve optimum performance.
People who use hearing aids often say that these small devices are one of the best investments they’ve ever made.
