Welcome, since this will be the first of many posts we wanted to start by laying out the goal for this new section of our website. With all of the confusion and conflicting messages that exist today around the impact of hearing loss, what hearing aids can and cannot do and the process for purchasing a hearing aid, we at Ascent Audiology & Hearing want to provide insight to help clear up these topics. By doing so, we hope that we can help more individuals suffering from hearing difficulties feel comfortable in getting the care that they need.

Not only, will our upcoming blog posts be educational and aim to dispel any myths that exist with treating hearing loss and hearing aids, but they will be fun and light-hearted. We understand that addressing hearing loss can be unnerving at first and we want to help ease any anxieties that may occur by making the process enjoyable and hassle-free. You may even see some posts that bring awareness to some struggles with hearing loss that you or a loved one may be having. Hopefully, with this increased awareness, everyone will take the first step and have their hearing tested to see if they can better improve quality of life through better hearing.

For the readers of upcoming posts we encourage all commentary, feedback and questions that can either be shared in the comments section of each blog or by submitting your information to the Contact Us form. When sharing your comment or question, please make sure it is constructive so others who view are able to receive the same helpful information as you. We look forward to replying to any inquiries and dialogue that can help those in need seek the treatment they deserve at Ascent Audiology & Hearing, North Kingstown.
