Max is the owner/president of Hearing Systems, Inc., as well as a licensed Audiologist specializing in Rehabilitation Audiology. He received his Bachelor's Degree in Communicative Disorders and Psychology in 1978, and went on to complete his Master's Degree in Audiology in 1981, all at the State University of New York at Buffalo. While at the University of Buffalo, he worked for a year at the Buffalo Philharmonic orchestra on Project Hearing Electronics Arts Research (H.E.A.R.) using Assistive Listening Devices in large auditoriums with the Performing Arts (FM, Infrared and Loop Systems). He came to Houston in 1981 and worked for a year and a half as the staff audiologist with the U.T. Medical School Ear, Nose, and Throat Department in the Texas Medical Center. From there he began and developed the Audiology Service for Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and the Northwest Cooperative for Education of the Deaf (seven school districts). In 1982 he started Hearing Systems, which grew into a full time firm specializing in Assistive Technology for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired. Hearing Systems is fully staffed under Mr. McCarthy's direction to provide consultation, sales, service, hearing aids and all types of equipment which allows complete accessibility for persons with impaired hearing. We work extensively with the Department of Rehabilitative Services (DRS, DBS, and DHHS), Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), and several other area organizations concerned with the hearing impaired.

Official Response from Hearing Systems, Inc:“Dear Vernita, We are very sorry that you were feeling frustrated about the situation with your son's earmold. Earmolds that are purchased in different years and come to us from reputable earmold labs can have slight color variations due to differences in batches that occur over time. We have made every effort to get your son an earmold that matches his other earmold (that was purchased a year before) as closely as possible. On the day your son came in for the new earmold impression, we refunded you the money you were charged for his earmold and ordered him a new one to more closely match the other one he had. We have your son's new earmold here and have scheduled two appointments with him to get it to him, but those appointments have not been kept. Please call our office today to schedule a time for him to come in so we can get the new earmold in his ear. We care about your son and and all of our patients and want you and him to be satisfied, but we cannot do that if we can't get him into the office. Please call us today. Rynda Tong, BCHIS”
