But, how do you know what to expect? When it comes to your hearing health and hearing aids, what is “normal,” and what might warrant a trip back to the office? The process is different for everyone, but here’s a general overview of what to expect during your consultation, during the adjustment phase with your new hearing aids and over the long-term course of your hearing aid use.

In honor of National Audiology Awareness Month in October, Audio Help throughout Manhattan wants to educate our community on the importance of hearing health care.

Over 36 million Americans of all ages suffer from hearing loss – that’s four times the amount of people living in New York City! Untreated hearing loss affects all aspects of one’s life, from home to work, often leading to feelings of depression and isolation.
