problems with latest new hearing aids & what to do about them.
I know an audiologist can give you a copy of the hearing test results. but can the patient also get a copy of the hearing aid compression/attack/release/ & frequency transfers that the hearing aid (my phonaks) is programed to perform?

@awilst, good question. You should always be able to get copies of your tests as well as read outs from transfers that the Phonak aids are programed to perform. I'm tagging @julieo4 @nurseheadakes @imallears @tonyinmi @dsh33782 to get their input too on requesting this data.
@awilst I ALWAYS get a copy of my latest audiogram for my records. As far as any of the technical settings, that is something I've never requested. I really don't think you want to try to get the settings unless you plan to program your aids yourself. People do that but it requires the programming software plus a piece of hardware that connects your aids to the computer. Chances are that the settings file is most likely a binary file that you would not be able to read anyway without the programming software.
