Avoiding ‘Blurry’ Hearing Aids
By Dennis A. Colucci, AuD
When fitted properly, hearing instruments can restore communication and reconnect patients with their family, friends, and environment. To maximize the outcome, I take time to choose the appropriate instruments and options, qualify the fitting with scientific measures, and ensure that the patient has adapted to the use of the devices without discomfort. I also obtain reports from the patient substantiating a significant reduction or elimination of communication stress and a sense of an improved quality of life. Finally, I make sure that the prescription and my counseling prepare the patient for auditory learning and memory changes.
