At Mayflower Hearing Care, an audiologist tests your hearing, then sits with you for a comfortable conversation about your results. Will a hearing aid help you? If so, we’ll program a digital aid just for you. But what’s the best style aid for you? Do you attend lectures frequently? Travel a lot? The life you lead is more important than your age in choosing a hearing aid. We see you quarterly to monitor your hearing aid and check the improvement in your hearing.
