IF you have Costco nearby you can try them. If the audiologist does not suit them you can just go to a different branch. Their HA costs are much lower than most others too.

It has 2 listed for me. One is a poor one owned an ENT practice. I have not tried the other but have used several others in the area here. (also a small town)

I also agree with @prodigyplace about trying Costco. After three Audiology clinics that were not satisfactory to me, I went to Costco and got hearing aids. I’m very satisfied with the products, fitters, and service.

I couldn’t agree more. For me, Costco is it. 180 day trial, adjustments, repairs, domes etc. & all Free. The A’s do not get a commission which is usually not the case with private A’s.

How do you know that? Have studies been done with statistics available?

The Costco says their US audiology staff do not get a commission. I think it was mentioned here hat the Canadian staff do get a commission.

And while audiologists and hearing instrument specialists often contend that Costco’s hearing aid clinics provide minimal professional service, the company counters that at least its dispensers don’t work on commission.

No, Costco Canada audiologists do not get a commission.

For what it’s worth, I am a private audiologist who does not take commission. Most of the manufacturer chains pay commission, though.

There is a distinction between between manufacturer chains and private practices don’t you think?

Are you saying you get all your profit from service charges and sell the hearing aids at your cost?

My understanding is that he’s a salaried employee, but I shouldn’t speak for him.

No that’s not what he said. He said he doesn’t take commission. You do know the difference between mark-up and commission don’t you? Selling an item for a profit is not commission. Costco is just a guilty of marketing schtick and misleading disingenuousness as anybody. The comment leads the gullible to imagine that every audiologist and HIS get commission for every sale they make. That’s why I asked if you’ve got any hard documentation that supports the claim. The fact that you haven’t answered is an answer in itself.

Do you have proof that they get commissions? PS- I don’t do Pissing Contests.

Asking that someone provide support for a claim, or in your case an accusation, is not a pissing contest, only a request for substantiation. A refusal to do so, particularly when a whole class of individuals is cast in a negative light is irresponsible.

@prodigyplace My apologies for the post I directed at you. It was intended for Remag. I’d correct it but I can’t edit it. Again sorry.
