Hearing Aid consumers now have over 1,200 pre-approved hearing clinics to choose from thanks to Advice on Hearing Aids.

As audiologists and hearing care professionals, we maintain the Advice on Hearing Aids site and the corresponding provider network in order to ensure that consumers receive expert direction regarding their hearing challenges.

Thanks to recent updates on the website, Advice On Hearing Aids, hearing aid consumers now have 1,200 pre-approved clinics to choose from. They know before even scheduling a visit what to expect during their hearing test. When they return home, comparisons of hearing aids, from the latest featuring Bluetooth-quality sound to the basic digital device, are a simple click away.

“As audiologists and hearing care professionals, we maintain the Advice on Hearing Aids site and the corresponding provider network in order to ensure that consumers receive expert direction regarding their hearing challenges,” says audiologist Kelly Calkins, Au.D.

The overriding goal is to help people hear better – and while doing so, to help people become better hearing care consumers. Calkins acknowledges that it can be difficult for an individual to accept hearing challenges; the Advice on Hearing Aids site is designed to ease those fears. Featuring major brands of hearing aids and cochlear implants as well as information regarding various hearing-related topics, the site’s audiologist moderators hope to empower visitors.

“The more patients learn, the more they can feel comfortable with their hearing loss and with the options available to them,” Calkins says.

By submitting a zip code, consumers can instantly view pre-approved clinics that honor Advice on Hearing Aids pricing. Though the site does not directly offer aids for sale, their collective bargaining power results in lower prices; what’s more, patients have peace of mind knowing they are visiting a pre-approved provider.

Adviceonhearingaids.com was created and is maintained by a network of audiologists and hearing health care specialists who have more than 40 years of combined hearing aid fitting experience. Participants in the network personally work with the hearing impaired and continually evaluate the latest products in the field. For more information, visit http://www.Adviceonhearingaids.com.
