Q. I have been told my hearing loss cannot be helped with a hearing aid. Is this true?
A. Recent advancements in digital technology have made it possible to assist individual hearing losses that could not have been helped a few years ago. Summit ENT offers a complete selection of the latest in hearing instrument technologies, including assistive listening devices for special communication needs.

Q. Will it be difficult to adjust to wearing a hearing instrument?
A. No! You have already overcome the most difficult obstacle-admitting to yourself that you do need help! Hearing loss develops gradually over a number of years. Our specialist will assist you in re-entering the wonderful world of sound. It takes time to become accustomed to the pleasures of common sounds. Once this occurs, the instrument becomes comfortable to wear and easy to use.

Q. I have heard people say they have difficulties with their hearing instruments in the presence of background noise.
A. Recent advances in digital hearing instruments, and the addition of directional microphones and noise reduction circuits, have given users unsurpassed hearing in noisy environments.

Q. Will my insurance company pay for my hearing aid(s)?
A. We work with most major insurance companies. If your insurance covers hearing instruments, we will process the paperwork and do all that is possible to solve your hearing health care needs.
