Many patients are sceptical to wear a hearing aid based on personal past negative experiences, or their friends and family expressing dissatisfaction with hearing aids.
The reason for this dissatisfaction could be owing to a number of factors, but primarily because of older, less effective hearing aid technology.
A trial fitting allows the patient to wear a demo hearing aid for two weeks to experience for themselves the improvement in hearing and quality of life they will experience by wearing the hearing aid. Many patients find that they are unaware of what sounds they are missing until we are able to bring these sounds back to them.
