“They refused to sell me hearing aids unless I take a bunch of useless tests. I am a 66 year old man and hearing loss is normal”
“I was shocked at what I paid for services and accessories I was told when I got my aides were included. If they tell you that get it in writing. ”

As stated in the fitting policy, all follow up visits, batteries and other supplies are included during the first year after fitting. There is a nominal fee after the first year for these items. Your hearing aids would have also come with either a one or three-year service repair warranty (depending on model), which covers both in-office repairs and those sent to the manufacturer. If you feel you were charged in error, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly and we will gladly look into it and refund any amount that may have been charged in error. Thank you, Kate Lins, AuD - Owner, UVHB ”
