Hearing Aid Repair
Hearing aids have small working parts, and it is not uncommon over time 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; the battery door may come unhinged. These things do happen, even when the hearing aids are properly cared for. If you should experience an issue that needs repair, take the hearing aid(s) to your Elkhart Audiologist. Sharon Hirstein is skilled at diagnosing 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 Elkhart audiologist, Sharon Hirstein, can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary and help you to get it in working order once again.
We are able to service most major manufacturers of hearing aids. If the hearing aid does need to be sent in for repair, whether or not there is a charge will depend on whether it is under warranty. New hearing aids come with a warranty when purchased; the length may last for a year or up to three. If your warranty has expired, it is still possible to repair most hearing aids for a small fee. The repair is returned with a new year-long warranty. Sharon will provide you with the details you need when you take your hearing aid into the office.
