Wonderful Service; Now I Can Hear!

I visited Anita for a routine hearing exam and check of my hearing aid. The exam was thorough. In checking my six year old hearing aid, Anita discovered that it was not working at all. No wonder I haven't been able to hear! Anita discussed the pros and cons of having my hearing aid repaired vs. buying a new hearing aid. She reviewed the many technological updates that are now available in hearing aids. She listened to me and addressed every one of my concerns. She provided literature on new hearing aids for me to review at home. She also described her process for fitting hearing aids. Her process is much more thorough than what I have experienced with other providers in the past. I have decided to purchase a new hearing aid. I look forward to trying the new technology and working with Anita.
Update: Anita helped me select a new hearing aid, and I have been using it for about a month for my unilateral hearing loss. This new hearing aid is much better than my six year old hearing aid, and is also much better than the Lyric internal hearing aid I used for a short time. I had never really tolerated either the old hearing aid or the Lyric. The sound never seemed natural; I hated the feedback I experienced on a windy day and at the theater. In fact, I seldom used the old hearing aid and stopped using the Lyric after around three months. I really felt that hearing aids were a waste of money and I would never find one that worked for me.
I was so wrong! My new hearing aid sounds natural and I can adjust it (using my iphone) to fit any type of listening environment. Although the adjustments I can make are almost limitless, so far I have found that the "normal" and "restaurant" settings have been all I've needed. I discussed with Anita how much better this new hearing aid is, and she said that technology has advanced a great deal in the last six or so years. I would add that the adjustments made by Anita have also been part of why my new hearing aid is working so well.
I would also add that Anita is the first audiologist I?ve been to who explained everything about my hearing loss and my hearing aid so thoroughly. I don?t feel like I have to struggle with anything; I understand what is going on. This has made the whole experience much more pleasant for me.
I would recommend that anyone who is experiencing a hearing loss try out the new technology. You might be pleasantly surprised.
