“This is the third provider I have used to purchase hearing aids over the past 18 years. (The changes are due to changes in providers used by my insurance plan.) My experience with SHAC has surpassed past experiences. I was disappointed to lose my first hearing aid providers when my insurance changed. I got my next set of aids at a big box store at a much lower cost. They were fine, but not as comfortable, with them sitting high on my ears, interfering with glasses frames. After 3 years, the volume and clarity decreased. My insurance would no longer cover that provider aids and I had to select one of their preferred providers. I chose nearby SHAC . So very glad I did! Chris helped me select the aids that are best suited for my needs and preferences. They are comfortable and perform beautifully. Hopefully, I won't need new aids for many years, but. if I do, I will return to Chris and Salem Hearing Aid Center-with or without insurance coverage!”

“I took my dementia mother there for her hearing and they were so amazing with her. Kind, patient and gentle. I was so impressed that I made an appointment for myself and had my ears checked. Great set of brothers.”
