A message from Hearing Health Center - Highland Park about COVID-19:
Dr. Ronna Fisher is the founder and owner of Hearing Health Center. She established the center in 1984 in honor of her father who suffered from hearing loss. In 2005, Dr. Fisher founded the Fisher Foundation for Hearing Health Care which is a not for profit organization. She earned her doctorate degree in audiology from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and holds a certificate of clinical competence in audiology from the American Speech Language Hearing Association. Dr. Fisher is a member of several audiology associations including the American Academy of Audiology and the Academy of Dispensing Audiologists.
Dr. Hilary MacCrae received her Bachelor’s of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Montevallo, followed by her Doctorate of Audiology from Northwestern University. She also holds the Certification of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
“My undergraduate degree was focused on speech-pathology, not audiology. It was a lot to learn, and we would break off into study groups to make sure everyone stayed on top of the material. During one unit, there was this little section—almost a footnote—about the fact that patients with hearing loss can’t be accurately tested during speech therapy unless they have their hearing loss treated (with hearing aids, for instance). That means untreated hearing loss can delay the whole process of recovering after something like a stroke! Sitting down and talking things over with my classmates really helped me understand how important access to sound is to brain recovery, and that understanding brought me to audiology. I want to give every patient access to the sounds of their lives, because that’s what they need to succeed. It is critical.”
In order to give her patients access to sound, Dr. MacCrae uses research-based techniques to ensure accurate test results, then uses those test results to create individualized settings in any given patient’s hearing devices.
“If a patient of mine decides to use hearing aids, it’s my goal to get them as close to ‘normal’ hearing as possible. Sometimes they end up hearing sounds they’d totally forgotten about, like a clicking turn signal in their car. I love when a patient comes in raving about something new that they’re hearing, because that means we’ve opened up a whole new world for their brain to explore.”
When she is not seeing patients, Dr. MacCrae enjoys baking for her friends and coworkers, doing embroidery, and reading books on linguistics.

“I brought in my 94 year old mother who was not hearing, even with her hearing aids. The staff was extremely kind and caring. After carefully and gently cleaning her ears, mom was able to hear again! A four star experience!!!”
“Fine experience. Helpful information. Recommend highly.”
“I learned that I could have my hearing aids cleaned every 6 mos. Never knew that service was available. Bluetooth presented some problems but I think they were addressed. The audiologist I had an appt with was not available but her replacement provided answers. ”
“I received hearing aids from Hearing Health Center in January,2020. It has been a very positive experience. Recently they gave my hearing aid a “check up”. It was flawless.”
“About two years I finally gave in after not hearing well enough when out with friends and even at home wife my wife, kids, and grandchildren. After my audiology test I tried several brands of hearing aids and chose the Option S1 - and these have been life changing! The education and service from Hearing Health Center in Highland Park has been extraordinary, reliable and has improved my hearing and self confidence. I enjoy the friendly service and have recommended Hearing Health Center to so many friends who now are as happy as I am. Their service is so consistently good that I use them as a benchmark when working with our business associates to try and equal their level of customer support...”
