Hearing Aid Myths

MYTH: Everyone will notice I'm wearing a hearing aid.
FACT: False. Hearing aids today are available in many shapes, sizes, and colors to remove any concerns about vanity.

MYTH: I only have a mild loss. I don't need a hearing aid.
FACT: False. Motivational factor is the most important part of a successful hearing aid fitting, which can be heightened if a family member is concerned about your hearing loss. However, research shows that early intervention with hearing devices can prevent auditory deprivation.

MYTH: I have tinnitus and hearing aids won’t help that.
FACT: False. Although tinnitus cannot be cured with hearing aids, it can be helped. Many of today's hearing aids have tinnitus maskers that help manage your tinnitus in your daily life.

Tips for Hearing Aid Wearers

Dr. Motechin's experience has shown him over the years that patience is key to hearing aid use success. He always counsels his patients to use their first week with their new devices to experience as many listening environments as possible and then to follow up a week later to report on their experiences. Based on this discussion, he's able to customize the hearing aids through computer programming to make sure your devices best suit your preferences.

It is through continuity of care and good follow up that a relationship develops between Dr. Motechin, an audiologist and his patients that enables both to have a successful hearing aid experience.
