Hearing aids have small working parts, and it is not uncommon for a hearing aid to need a repair. You may try to turn the hearing aid on in the morning and find that there is no sound. This may be a result of the battery door coming unhinged. These things do happen, even when you properly care for your hearing aids. If you should experience an issue that needs repair, take the hearing aid(s) to your audiologist. They have the tools and knowledge to fix broken hearing aids. Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
If you are a current patient and have hearing aids we did not fit, we are happy to try to repair your hearing aids. We are able to service most big brand hearing aids and can tell you in the office if yours is a brand we service. Hearing aids come with a warranty when purchased new.

Your hearing professional will provide you with details when you take your hearing aid into the office.
