45 DAY TRAIL EXPERIENCE BEFORE YOU COMMIT TO A HEARING AID PURCHASE

We believe in providing quality Hearing Health Care. We don’t just sell hearing aids. If amplification is recommended it is because we have tested your hearing and found that amplification is the best course of medical care to improve your hearing and communication abilities. We strive to provide the best means to rehabilitate your hearing loss and make the transition from poor hearing to better hearing as easy as possible.

At Ear and Hearing Specialists of New Mexico we understand that the cost of hearing aids can be prohibitive to beginning the rehabilitative steps to better hearing. It is well known that the costs of hearing aids can be the third most expensive investment of a person’s life behind that of purchasing a home or a vehicle. We are sensitive to this fact and want our patients to make an informed and educated choice when selecting a hearing aid.

We offer a 45 day trial period with quality hearing instruments. In the state of New Mexico patients are allowed a 45 day money back guaranteed hearing aid trial. Most dispensaries will charge a large trial fee for that long trial period. We charge less than most Albuquerque hearing aid fitters for an in home trial period. At the end of the 45 day trial you still have the right to return the hearing aids for credit and a trial fee of $200.00 per aid is charged and a refund is issued. Our billing staff will help find solutions to financial need patients through predetermination of insurance benefits, payment plans or third party assistance.

Studies have linked untreated hearing loss to:

  • Irritability, negativism and anger
  • fatigue, tension, stress and depression
  • avoidance or withdrawal from social situations
  • social rejection and loneliness
  • reduced alertness and increased risk to personal safety
  • impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks
  • reduced job performance and earning power
  • diminished psychological and overall health

CONSEQUENCES OF UNTREATED HEARING LOSS

According to Sergei Kochkin, Ph.D., Executive Director, Better Hearing Institute, Many people are aware that their hearing has deteriorated but are reluctant to seek help. Perhaps they don’t want to acknowledge the problem, are embarrassed by what they see as a weakness, or believe that they can “get by” without using a hearing aid.  And, unfortunately, many people wait years, even decades, before seeking treatment.

But time and again, research demonstrates the considerable negative social, psychological, cognitive and health effects of untreated hearing loss . . . with far-reaching implications that go well beyond hearing alone. In fact, those who have difficulty hearing can experience such distorted and incomplete communication that it seriously impacts their professional and personal lives, at times leading to isolation and withdrawal.

Hearing loss affects people of all ages, not just the elderly.  For the young, even a mild or moderate hearing loss can cause difficulty learning, developing speech and building the important interpersonal skills necessary to foster self-esteem and succeed in school and life.

If you think you or a loved one suffers from hearing loss, don’t delay another day. Visit Ear and Hearing Specialists of New Mexico and take the first step toward better hearing.

There are several health risks that are associated with hearing loss. If you have any of the following symptoms you may have a hearing loss and be unaware of it. Some common health conditions include:

Overweight: A high BMI (body mass index) or if you carry your weight in your waist area is associated with hearing loss, especially in women.

Balance and fall risk: Hearing loss has been associated with a higher incidence of serious falls.

Chemotherapy drugs: Some Chemo therapy drugs are known to be ototoxic and cause temporary and permanent hearing loss.

Noise exposure: With the higher use of personal listening devices like cell phone, ipods and Bluetooth there has been a sharp increase in hearing loss, especially in the higher frequencies, in the past few years. Noise comes in many forms all of which if loud enough or listened to long enough can be associated with an increase in hearing loss.
