About Us

When it comes to your hearing, your choice of a hearing healthcare professional is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Since a hearing aid can’t be prescribed like eyeglasses, the proper hearing aid recommendation and fitting is highly dependent on the judgment and skill of the professional selecting the instrument. We test your hearing, select, and dispense the hearing instrument best suited to your personal, professional, cosmetic and financial needs.
