Scott Wilson Hearing Aids

Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting

Once you have selected your hearing aids after your evaluation, Scott or Chuck will program them based on your test results, to meet your hearing needs. We will explain how to use your devices, how to put them in your ears and how to remove them, how to change batteries and how to care for and clean the devices. It is also a good idea to bring family members or close friends to the hearing aid fitting so they can help remember all the information that is given and be a support to you.

When you put the hearing aids in for the first time, you may have different emotions about the sounds you hear. This is normal and to be expected. The goal of the hearing aids are to make every day sounds audible and comfortable, but the sound you hear should be clear and pleasant. Small adjustments can be made to the hearing aids at your first fitting if there are things that you feel should be adjusted right away. Scott or Chuck will make sure your hearing aids are giving you enough sound where you need it, and make sure you are comfortable.

We will talk to you about how the hearing aids sound, making sure the sound quality is to your liking. Be honest about what you hear so that we can work with you to create the best listening experience with your new hearing aids. Your hearing aid fitting is only a starting place; other changes to customize your hearing aids to your liking may need to take place over a few appointments, as you wear the hearing aids in more situations and adapt to all the new sounds you are hearing.

Attitude is one important key to success with hearing aids. Hearing aid studies have shown that people who have a positive attitude do better with hearing aids. If you, as well as your spouse or family, approach your hearing aid fitting with a positive outlook you will get much better results. Keep in mind that it may take some time to get used to the sounds you were missing, and by working closely with us, you will get the most out of your new hearing aids.
