I recently decided to see a hearing specialist for loss of hearing. I have had Tinnitus for many years and in the last few years I have trouble hearing in groups of people and one on one. The specialist I saw was rude and very aggressive in pushing $ 6000.00 hearing aids on me. She had only one concern and that was selling me a hearing aid. If this treatment you get when visiting a specialist (doctor) than I will just live with this. Is there any reasonable price hearing aids out there that will mask and help with loss..
