Preparing for Your First Appointment

At Golden State Hearing Aid Center, we’re dedicated to helping you understand and improve your hearing health. There is no shortage of sounds in the world, and we want you to be able to hear as many as possible. The first step toward this is an appointment with our hearing aid dispenser.

Before Your Visit

  • Gather Medical Records: Compile any previous hearing tests and medical records related to your hearing health. Information on any past ear surgeries, diseases or treatments will be useful for your hearing aid dispenser.
  • List Symptoms and Concerns: Before your appointment, take notes on situations where you find hearing difficult. Mention if you experience tinnitus, dizziness or any other ear-related symptoms.
  • Family History: Be ready to discuss your family’s history of hearing loss, which can provide valuable insights for your treatment plan.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

  • Hearing Assessment: Your hearing aid dispenser will conduct a thorough hearing assessment to determine your hearing levels and understand the specific nature of your hearing loss.
  • Lifestyle and Needs Evaluation: Expect questions about your lifestyle, work environment and where you often find hearing challenging. This helps in recommending the best hearing aid options tailored to your unique needs.
  • Hearing Aid Options: Based on the assessment, you’ll be presented with different hearing aid types and styles that best suit your hearing loss and lifestyle preferences.
  • Budget Discussion: Our team will help you understand the options within your budget—including any available financing plans or insurance coverages.

Tips for a Successful Visit

  • Bring a Companion: If possible, bring someone close to you to the appointment. They can help remember information and provide support.
  • Ask Questions: Don’t hesitate to ask for clarifications about your hearing loss, hearing aid options, additional accessories or the fitting process.
  • Understand the Next Steps: Learn about follow-up appointments, hearing aid trial periods and the adjustment process to ensure you’re comfortable moving forward.
