Why We Publish Our Prices on the Internet
When Dr. McHugh started Colorado Springs Audiology in 1985, one of his goals was to provide hearing aids at reasonable prices and be "up front" in every regard. Interestingly, some folks who compared the cost of a specific make and model of hearing aid recommended by another audiologist or hearing provider wondered if we were selling the exact same hearing aid "since our fees were so much lower.” We were!
Today, I publish my hearing aid costs on my web site. Rest assured, "apples to apples," all hearing aids listed on my web site are the same make and model, and the prices are what they are. And, we never make substitutions (referred as bait and switch) without very justifiable reasons.
We have been accused of being "unprofessional" for actually publishing our fees on the Internet. This is ludicrous. Hearing aids can be expensive and people deserve to know how much it will cost.
My web site rates high on searches because a) of how long we've been on the web - since 1998 - b) because of my name colorado springs audiology - and c) because my Internet site name coloradoaudiology.com. However, I do not advertise with search engines. That adds costs that consumers are forced to supplement; and I don't know about you, I never trust web site that have the Ad sign next to it.
As a result, we have had interesting inquiries from around the country since people surf web sites when considering hearing aids. Even people from foreign countries have tried to buy hearing aids from us. Unfortunately, we do not provide hearing aids by mail and only provide hearing aids to persons/patients who physically come to our office.
So be a smart consumer and shop around. Apples to apples, you'll save money, and along the way you will certainly feel you were tested and treated by an extremely nice office staff and by a professional with over 35 years of experience.
