By purchasing a hearing aid(s) on this website, you are agreeing that:

By making a purchase, if you have not completed the medical evaluation option above, you are agreeing to the following statement: "I have been advised by Advanced Affordable Hearing, LLC that the Food and Drug Administration has determined that my best health interest would be served if I had a medical evaluation by a licensed physician (preferably a physician who specializes in diseases of the ear) before purchasing a hearing aid. I do not wish a medical evaluation before purchasing a hearing aid."
