One thing that sets us apart from our competition is that we include free batteries with the purchase of most of our hearing aids. However, due to increasing battery and postage costs, we have had to make the following changes to our free battery policy:
Because the manufacturer is now only giving us one pack of batteries per month for each patient, we are now able to only give ONE month’s worth of batteries at a time. Unfortunately, if we give out two to one patient, that means that another patient won’t get theirs. To be fair, we need to stick to this rule.
Postage rates have increase considerably, so we will no longer be able to mail batteries to patients who live within 10 miles of the office.
Please note: if you will let the batteries sit with the tab off for 5 minutes before putting it into your hearing aid, the battery will last for 2-3 days longer. Also, if your hearing aid is using more than 2 batteries a week, your hearing aid may have a problem– please call and make an appointment.
Thanks for your understanding with these changes!
