We especially like the smiles from our patients after they realize the difference in their hearing.”

“I can’t believe what a great pair of hearing aids do to a person’s world. I am now hearing my environment around me that I haven’t heard for a few years. The staff and audiologist Rachel Stuehm were very friendly and helpful. This is my 2nd experience with Hearing Assoc. and am pleased to share info with others.”

“I was resistive to my wife's suggestion that I have my hearing checked. "I'm not wearing hearing aids" was my position. Well, Dr. Rachel, was extremely professional and not at all pushy. The bottom line is, I swear by my aids. I never realized what I was missing. I have become an advocate for proper hearing care. Thank you Hearing Associates.”

“The doctors made me feel extremely comfortable from the start when I found out that I would be needing hearing aids. The doctors have always been so helpful in going over any issues that I have, answering all of my questions, and taking time to review all of my questions without me feeling rushed. Everyone there is very knowledgeable and patient. The only thing I wish is that there were more evening hours since I work full time and usually have to miss work to get there for an appointment. I have been confident referring family and friends because I know they will have a great experience too! ”

“From the moment you enter until you leave you are treated with respect and care. All the staff are very efficient and polite. They are extremely patient with the fitting of hearing aids, always concerned that they are comfortable and that you are hearing as clearly as possible. I highly recommend them!”
