Hearing Aid Process
Hearing Aid Evaluation
The hearing aid evaluation appointment will last approximately 1 hour. During this appointment Dr. Maresca will explain to you about your hearing loss, all of the different hearing aid technologies, show you the various hearing aid styles, and answer any questions you may have. If you decide that you wish to be fit with hearing aids, Dr. Maresca will take measurements or impressions of your ears. The hearing aid prescription will be written, the hearing aids will be ordered and your new hearing aids should arrive within 3 - 5 business days. Bring a family member or friend to your hearing aid evaluation appointment. There’s a lot of information, family and friends are always welcome. There is no charge for this appointment.
Hearing Aid Fitting
The hearing aid fitting appointment will last approximately 1 hour. At this appointment Dr. Maresca will fit your new hearing aids to you, go over the parts of the hearing aids, how to work with the hearing aids and teach you how to take care of the hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Check
The hearing aid check appointments generally last 15 to 30 minutes. During the first 30 days, it is very important to return for your follow-up visits. Dr. Maresca will fine tune the hearing aids so that they are programmed not only for your hearing loss, but also for your specific needs, where you go and what you do. After both you and Dr. Maresca feel that the hearing aids are set properly for you, it is recommended that you return for regular quarterly hearing aid check-ups for cleaning and maintenance.
