Hearing Aid Evaluations & Fittings

Based on your individual lifestyle and communication needs, ENT of Georgia South audiologists will demonstrate appropriate hearing technologies for you in the office. We believe “hearing” the technology in action is important. We offer all types of hearing solutions including:

  • Surgically-implanted devices such as BAHA and cochlear implants
  • Hearing aids from major manufacturers in a full range of styles and prices
  • Rechargeable, wireless and Bluetooth hearing aids and accessories
  • Custom combination hearing protection and amplifiers for hunters and musicians
  • Assistive technologies and alerting devices for those with severe to profound losses
  • Tinnitus maskers or combination hearing aid/tinnitus maskers

 

Selection of

Your Technology

After appropriate technologies are recommended and demonstrated, your audiologist will complete the selection process. This may include:

  • Taking custom ear mold impressions of the ear canals
  • Measuring the lengths of tubes or wires needed to comfortably fit the devices to your ears
  • Selecting colors to customize the look for your style and preference
  • Discussing warranty options
  • Providing you information about batteries, cases, and supplies included with your purchase
  • For patients needing implantable devices, we will initiate coordination of care with your ENT physician and/or otologist, as well as surgical coordinator

Next Steps:

Fitting & Beyond

Most patients receiving non-surgically-implanted technologies will be scheduled for fitting within a few days to no more than two weeks. Some surgically-implanted devices may have longer time lines.

  • First Fitting: Expect to spend an hour with your audiologist.  This will allow time for customization and programming of the devices. You will leave comfortable and confident about using and caring for your technology investment. You will receive a detailed contract outlining important information about your devices, warranty information and return policies.
     
  • Short-Term Follow Up: Most patients will see their audiologist for fine tuning adjustments two times during the first month after the initial fitting. Your audiologist will determine if you need more visits during this time of adjusting to your new technology.
     
  • Long-Term Follow Up: Most patients will see their audiologist every six to 12 months for routine maintenance of their technology.  Your audiologist will customize your long- term follow-up plan.
