How soon can I get my hearing aids?

Can I send you an audiogram and order a hearing aid by mail?

No. Selling hearing aids by mail is against the law in the State of Missouri.

No. No one can make a hearing aid that can do that. However, they do bring your volume level back up to an audible range in the frequency range related to speech. This enables you to hear sounds more easily.
