It started more than 32 years ago, when Debbie Swift, founder and owner, set up her first “office” in rented space of a pharmacy. Her mission then was to help people that were having difficulties hearing to hear better with the assistance of hearing devices. And 32 years later, her personal and business mission has not changed. As the practice has grown to four locations and staff that includes Doctor’s of Audiology and Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialists, it is everyone’s mission to help those in our community hear better and continue enjoying life.
We understand that in today’s market (and more than ever before) individuals are flooded with options for amazing hearing aids that are packed with incredibly powerful features. This is exciting; because it means there are plenty of options, but it can also make choosing the right hearing aids feel a bit overwhelming.
Over the 32 years, Swift Audiology has realized that the choice is in the patient’s hands. It is you that makes the decision, that determines what sounds best, what fits best, and it’s our job to be there to support and guide you along the way. At Swift Audiology, we care deeply about ensuring that you are paired with hearing devices that most perfectly match your preferences, needs, lifestyle, budget and hearing profile. That is why we are proud to offer The Hearing Aid Test Drive™. We believe that using in-office measurement and data points alone are not the most effective means for determining the right hearing aid for you. We believe the only way to truly know which hearing aids are right for you is for you to test them in real-time, and in real life.
You wouldn’t buy a car without a test drive, so why would you buy a hearing aid without one?
The Swift Audiology HEARING AID TEST DRIVE PROCESS looks like this.
1. Schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists or board certified hearing instrument specialist for your comprehensive hearing screening.
2. If it is determined that hearing aids are a good option for treating your hearing loss, you will be given the opportunity to choose from a wide range of hearing aids that may be a good fit for you. You can try many different types and price levels with no commitment or deposit required. Best of all, you will be able to take the hearing aids home to test drive the very same day.
3. We understand that test-driving hearing aids is not the same as test driving a car. You can’t simply walk your hearing aids around the block and determine if they are right for you. To truly “test drive” hearing aids, we know that you will need to experience them everywhere you go. Test your hearing aids at work, at the gym, at the grocery store, watching TV, at a restaurant, at church and in the park. Take the time you need to determine if the hearing aids are right for you.
The Hearing Aid Test Drive is important to the professionals at Swift Audiology and we feel this is a great way for our patients to get the hearing help they need. This program helps us overcome some of the challenges of finding the best hearing aid for our patients.
First, our brains have an adjustment period to hearing aids. All too often, new patients expect hearing aids to work just like glasses, where you put them on and voila – your hearing is perfect. Keep in mind that the benefits of hearing aids are not instantaneous. In fact, some people experience a bit of an awkward adjustment period when they are first getting used to their aids. This is just one more reason we are proud to offer The Test Drive to allow users an opportunity to adjust to their aids before making a purchase decision.
Secondly, not every hearing aid is right for every person. Please keep in mind that even if you have spent time researching online and you believe you have found the perfect hearing aids for you, they may not actually be the right fit for your hearing loss prescription. It is important to find hearing aids that match your hearing profile and lifestyle for best results. Don’t worry, we’ll help you figure out what those are.
