COMPREHENSIVE DIAGNOSTIC AUDIOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS HEARING AID PROGRAM "We work with you to get it right." Many audiology offices and most hearing aid stores focus on hearing aids as the treatment for hearing loss. At Alliance we focus on the person that uses the hearing aids. Our philosophy is that the hearing aid is a tool for the wearer to use. We work with our patients to select the most appropriate, practical amplification system. We counsel them about the process of adjustment to amplification and what to expect as they regain their hearing. Our hearing aid program philosophy is that we will work with you to get it right. At any time during your 30-day trial period, if we realize that you are not progressing properly with the selected hearing aids or if you wish to try something else, we will put you into a different pair of hearing aids. Then you will have another 30 days to try them. We know that adjusting to the world of sound takes time and patience. We ask you to return for a series of follow-up visits to check your progress and to fine-tune the hearing aids. We may also incorporate auditory training to improve your listening skills.
