Hearing aids should be serviced at least annually or as soon as you feel that the hearing aid isn’t working to its former standard. We would like to invite private clients to take advantage of a limited-time offer to have your hearing aids serviced, firmware upgraded (if needed), your hearing tested and hearing aids reprogrammed for only $90.00. Government clients are entitled to a free annual servicing every 12 months.
