06/12/2023 | Local News, Patient Resources

If you’re looking to seek help with a hearing challenge in Fall River, Centerville, Dartmouth, or Falmouth, then you have a number of options available to you, ranging from hearing aid dispensers through to audiologists and Doctors of Audiology.

In this article, I’m going to give you a detailed breakdown of the best local providers to help you to find the right partner for you.

Why Are We Doing This?

The truth is that hearing loss is a growing problem, and the statistics around the prominence of hearing challenges in younger and younger people are a big concern.

One of the things that holds many people back from treating their hearing challenges is confusion about whom to visit and whom to trust.Our belief is that a rising tide lifts all boats, and with us being fully aware that we at Duncan Hearing Healthcare are right for some patients and not for others, we wanted to create a helpful, transparent piece of information to better support our community.

How to Make the Right Decision on Whom to Choose

One of the biggest challenges that the hearing care industry faces is that most people still believe that the solution to a hearing loss is simply a set of hearing aidsyet the truth is that devices are just part of the jigsaw.

The much more important component is partnering with the right team of hearing care professionals.

Our encouragement to you is to choose a team that you believe can deliver on long-term promises, not provide a short-term solution to a long-term health challenge.

We hope the above helps you to understand your options and make the best choice based on your unique needs and circumstances.
