Buyer Beware

It seems today you can buy nearly anything on the Internet – including hearing aids. But many experts agree that could end up being a costly mistake.

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association cautions consumers not to buy hearing aids by mail order because doing so may mean bypassing crucial parts of the diagnostic process, the hearing aid selection process, and the counseling that is needed in order to get the maximum benefit from your hearing aids.

The audiology specialists at Lake Ear Nose & Throat and Facial Plastic Surgery’s Audiology Department share some important information you need to consider before you buy.
