Below are a few suggestions for making your appointment as efficient and productive as possible:
- For a week or two before your appointment, make notes about when and where you’re having difficulty with your hearing. This information will be helpful during the discovery process.
- Set aside an hour and a half for your appointment. It might not take that much time, but planning for a longer appointment is better than feeling stressed because you’re squeezed for time.
- Invite a family member or close friend to accompany you to the appointment. Besides helping you feel more comfortable, this person can help you remember all the information you’ll be getting and may think of additional questions to ask your provider.
