WE OFFER ALL STYLES OF HEARING AID PRODUCTS.
These include the major types offered by all manufacturers:
- Receiver-the-ear (RIC) is the most common style of hearing aid worn. It is a discreet device, hidden behind the ear, with a wire leading to a receiver and earpiece in the ear canal. These can be rechargeable or work with traditional batteries.
- Behind-the-ear (BTE) is positioned behind the ear and is connected by clear tubing to an ear mold or dome. These can be rechargeable or work with traditional batteries.
- In-the-ear (Custom) hearing aids are custom-molded shells that contain all of the hearing aid mechanisms—sizes range from Completely in the Canal to Full Shell.
DID YOU KNOWHealthy hearing not only helps you hear better, but it can improve your social life and keep you active. In fact, research shows that better hearing can help reduce anxiety and frustration, improve cognitive function, and improve your overall quality of life. And the great news is, today’s hearing aids are much more sophisticated than those from past years. Now you can get amazing, high-fidelity sound and clear understanding of speech from hearing aids that are virtually invisible when worn in the ear.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSCan you share a bit about the process and timeline of getting hearing aids? The patient sees Dr. Lazar and has a complete otologic and hearing evaluation. If he determines the patient is a candidate for hearing aid(s), then we schedule an appointment for a more thorough evaluation and fitting with a trial hearing aid that the patient can actually take home for a week or so to determine if it helps them in their own environment.
What is your Flex-Trial program? Our Flex-Trial program allows a patient to try the hearing aids at home and in their daily lives so they have a more realistic idea of the benefits of amplification. Usually, a week or two is ample time to get used to the hearing aids and see if they help.
How long does it take to get hearing aids in once chosen? Hearing aids can be delivered within 2 days. We have the patient come in for a hearing Aid Orientation where we go over use and care of the instrument(s) and make any adjustments necessary for an optimal fit.
