One-type-fits-all hearing aids are a thing of the past. Today’s hearing aids are dynamic in fit, style, size, shape and function. Different types of hearing aids offer wearers different features and benefits.

The audiologists at Watauga Hearing are dedicated to helping you hear your best with your hearing aids.

Benefits of Getting Hearing Aids from an Audiologist

An audiologist has the breadth and depth of knowledge to help you select your ideal pair of hearing devices. The audiologists at Watauga Hearing are here to help you during every step of the hearing aid selection process.
- Counseling services. For most people, adjusting to life with hearing aids doesn’t happen overnight. Since the process of adapting to hearing aids can be challenging, counseling services are an important part of adapting to life with hearing devices. Our staff understands what you’re going through and is here to help you learn about life with hearing aids so you can acclimate to your devices comfortably.
- Careful fitting. Your new hearing aids will be custom fitted to your ear; adjustments called real ear measures are necessary for optimal hearing device performance. You will find many hearing aid facilities that do not complete these important measurements even though it ensures optimal hearing aid performance and is recommended by the American Academy of Audiology. You can take comfort knowing that the audiologists at Watauga Hearing complete real ear measures each and every time it is possible. You can expect careful and continuous care throughout the entire fitting and follow-up process.
