Hearing Devices 101

Here is some key information to know about hearing, devices and how we work with patients.

Hearing isn't all or nothing.
Hearing is not an all or nothing phenomenon. People, whether children or adults, show varying degrees of hearing at varying frequencies in both ears. The implications of this fact are often overlooked for a variety of reasons that include a lack of understanding about modern technology that improves access to sound.
Everyone is different, so everything is personalized.
No two people are alike and neither are their hearing losses and lifestyle needs. Dr. Vetter-Toalson uses a personalized approach during the consultation in recommending hearing device options to best meets every patient’s preferences, from childhood through adulthood.
