San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) September 08, 2015
Hearing loss is difficult to recognize; it accumulates slowly and gradually over the years and goes undetected until it begins to adversely impact life. At that point, people are tempted to either deny the issue, or, alternatively, to try to find a quick and inexpensive fix—including purchasing hearing aids online, purchasing personal sound amplifiers, or visiting a national chain store.
While there are several tempting alternatives, visiting the local hearing care provider is still the best way to diagnose and treat hearing loss, according to a recent article by Diablo Hearing Services titled Why Choose a Local Hearing Care Provider?
In the article, Diablo Hearing Services describes the reasons why local hearing care providers provide the best hearing and the best results. First, local practices employ a different business model and philosophy in comparison with the national chains. Whereas local practices rely on a customer-centric business model—in which the business benefits from superior patient care and the resulting patient-to-patient referrals it produces—the national chains employ the profit-centric business model based on national advertising and seeing as many patients as possible.
Second, local hearing care providers tend to have more experience providing personalized hearing care. Local hearing care providers typically have many years of experience performing hearing tests, helping patients select the right hearing aids, and custom-programming the hearing aids to match each patient’s specific hearing loss. In contrast, if hearing aids or personal sound amplifiers are obtained without the consultation of a competent hearing professional, it is not likely that the devices will amplify the appropriate frequencies and the results will be disappointing.
Diablo Hearing Services is urging anyone with suspected hearing loss to arrange a consultation with their local hearing care provider. The combination of personalized care, expert counseling, and significant patient care experience makes the local provider the top choice for the maximum restoration of hearing.
