EarQ Endorses “Boycott Internet Hearing Aid Sales”

Who is Boycott Internet Hearing Aid Sales? We’re you – all of you – who are concerned about the selling of hearing aids online. We’re a member-owned organization, the result of a simple, grassroots effort to see how many of us there were out there, without putting any one practice or person at risk.

And based on early reaction to the establishment of this organization, our concern for confidentiality wasn’t unfounded. Reaction by those profiting from this questionable practice was swift. “Who’s behind this?” they wanted to know, rather than asking the better question,”What can we do to ensure the future of our industry and the health of our patients?”

And now, one hearing health professional practice has come out visibly in support of this effort. EarQ, a group of Hearing Healthcare Professionals who take great pride in helping people hear better, sets high standards when it comes to the hearing health of their patients. And they see this issue as not just important, but vital.

“We just can’t afford to put our practices, and the health of our patients, at risk,” says Ed Keller, President of EarQ. “The time has come to take action.”

If you feel the same way, don’t wait. Sign the completely confidential endorsement list now. And if you know of any manufacturers or associations who should be added to our Supporters list, send us their names, and we’ll make sure they’re listed on the site.

    I want to boycott internet sales. It has cost my patients more money buying on line than it would just coming to my office. Most of the time they get something that is not even close to what they need and I must start from scratch. I charge a fee to program anything that we can use for their loss. One man told me not to tell his wife that he wasted money by not coming to me first.
