Question 2 of 30
Have you ever had a patient want to return a hearing aid? How did you handle that?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
This question is intentionally asked to see how you interact with patients. Of course, you can't take a used hearing aid, but what you can do is find out why the patient wants to return it. Is it not comfortable? Are they not using it correctly so they feel it doesn't work? Is it a cost issue? Because of your ability to interact with patients, you'll be able to let the interviewer know that you'll take the time to meet with the patient, hear their concerns and figure out a plan together.
Answer Example
"I have had a patient want to return a hearing aid because it was uncomfortable for them. Come to find out, the patient didn't place it correctly after they left my office. After a bit of education, ​we were able to get a good fit for the patient."

Question 3 of 30
Do you feel that you personally benefit from this career choice? How so?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Steer clear of the obvious salary, time off and flexible schedule answer. The interviewer wants to know how you this career field has made you more empathetic, more organized or even a better person. Think back to the time before you became an Audiologist and how you are better now because of it. Share a story or a characteristic with the interviewer.

Answer Example
"I have a personal satisfaction knowing I'm helping patients achieve a fuller life with my help."

Question 4 of 30
How do you currently follow up with your patients to monitor the status of their hearing aid?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
As an Audiologist, following up with your patients is very important. You may follow up with patients differently based on their diagnosis and your concern. Give a few examples. Discuss how you check in with the parents of a child that was just fitted with a cochlear implant every day and how you follow up with an elderly patient monthly that just needed a battery replaced in their hearing aid. You provide excellent customer service, relay that to the interviewer.
Answer Example
"I give each of my patients a courtesy call once a month."
