Hearing Aid specialists helping you
Sam’s Club has more than 100 Hearing Aid Centers around the country, staffed by state-licensed professionals who specialize in fitting hearing aids. Their job is to help the approximately 12 percent of the U.S. population with a significant hearing loss.
At Sams Club, the hearing aid specialist uses a computer-controlled audiometer to do a hearing screening (or a more involved hearing evaluation) and state-of-the-art testing equipment to do a thorough examination of the external ear, ear canal and ear drum. Hearing tests can be done on Members 18 and older, and annual follow-up screenings are free.
Based on the results, the hearing aid specialist will recommend the device that will best suit the Members needs. This could mean a hearing aid (for a Member with hearing loss) or personal sound amplification products (for Members seeking special amplification in situations like hunting, bird watching or lectures). The hearing aid specialist also refers Members to their physicians if their hearing loss indicates a potential medical problem.
Hearing aid specialists also provide education on the proper use and care of products and offer free programming of, and adjustments to, hearing aids. While Members are shopping, specialists can even provide quick cleanings and adjustments to help extend the lives of hearing aids.
