About Waco PHC
According to Consumer Health Reports, the suggested choice for hearing aid fitting is a medical office headed by an otolaryngologist (an ear, nose, and throat physician) who employs an audiologist to fit and dispense hearing aids. Unfortunately, the vast majority of hearing aids are sold by people who have very little training and education in the science of hearing.
Most national franchise stores do not train their dispensers in any way close to the four-year post-graduate degrees obtained by doctors of audiology like those at Physicians Hearing Center. With four medical doctors working side by side with Physicians Hearing Center’s doctors of audiology, the practice offers stability and a solid commitment to the patient’s hearing health.
While the majority of hearing losses can be improved through the use of amplification devices, deciding to pursue better hearing with hearing aids should be done cautiously and with guidance from your audiologist. There are a number of factors which should be considered when choosing the appropriate hearing aid including lifestyle, activity level, social involvement, cosmetic appeal, and finances. Using information about these factors, your Physicians Hearing Center audiologist will be able to make appropriate recommendations to accomplish your goal of better hearing.
