Hearing Aid Treatment Plan

It just is not enough just to buy some Hearing Instruments to solve ones hearing problems.

Hearing Instrument should be part of a process to regain one's ability to hear and understand better, which takes a concerted effort of the user and the Hearing Instrument specialist and might take several months.

To put on Hearing Instruments and expect instantaneous to hear like 20 or even just 10 years ago is unrealistic and will in many cases result in the rejection of the Hearing Instruments.

Most hearing impairments are not the result of a sudden loss of hearing but are acquired over a prolonged period of time, during which one gets used to a new, quieter, less stimulating environment.
