I can now understand what people are saying, I can hear the clock ticking, and I’ve been able to reduce the volume of the TV by about 50%. -James Hamilton, Naperville
I got tired of saying things like “what did you say” and “come again.” Dr. Ning Jing and the whole staff are nice and helpful. -Walter Langdon, Naperville
What I really want to say about my hearing aids:
For several years, I realized I needed hearing aids…to enjoy conversations with friends and family, to hear the dialogue in movies and TV, to enjoy music at concerts, to hear the message at church.
Yet I was reluctant to get hearing aids. So many of my friends wore hearing aids, but had constant problems with voice distortion, with ambient noise, with the level of amplification. They were always “fiddling with” their aids, and all-too-often they were dissatisfied and complaining.
When I reached the state where I could no longer deny my need, I went to Hearing Health Center in Naperville (recommended by my primary physician). From the moment I first wore my aids, it was wonderful! What a great “change of life” for me! I have never looked back. -Sharon Reed, Naperville
I have felt so welcome dealing with Dee at the front desk and Dr. Risley. They are both genuinely caring individuals who never make me feel I am wasting their time. No question is too trivial! I love my daily walks and suddenly I hear birds and insects. When walking on the bike trails I can now hear someone approaching behind me calling the courteous warning: “on your left.” My family is grateful that I now understand them speaking in a normal tone of voice. Wearing a hearing aid has enabled me to join in my group activities at my condo. I feel I am now a safer, more responsible driver. Adjusting to the daily and/or monthly care has been far easier than I had anticipated. It was a life-enriching change. -Jacquelyn Fyr, Oak Brook
This has been the best experience I’ve had in any medical office. Dr. St. Peter has been so helpful and concerned, kind and stops at nothing to make sure I’m happy with these hearing aids. I’d never consider going to anyone else. The office staff is outstanding- relaxed and charming. It’s the only place to consider if you want the best results possible and a respectful comfortable staff. Two of my children have been with me on appointments and agree “you’re the best!” Thank you for your gentle, thorough care! -Katherine Helfrich, Highland Park
It is a very pleasant revelation to once again hear a full range of sounds. I didn’t realize how much I was missing; music, conversation, the sounds of nature. I can’t praise the staff of HHC enough! Dr. St. Peter is very knowledgeable and professional. She is very understanding of how hearing loss can affect quality of life. Appointments, follow-up, insurance, and all office functions are handled with a friendly and professional manner. HHC is probably the best health care provider I have dealt with in recent years. Extremely professional, capable, and friendly. -John Zeravica, Highland Park
Everyone was caring and professional. They took the time to be sure I understood and was comfortable with my hearing aids. Even if you don’t think you have a hearing problem, go to Hearing Health Center and get checked. Even a little problem getting fixed can make a BIG difference in your life. -Luann Hilliard, Oak Brook
I feel as if I have a new lease on life. I never realized how much I was missing. -Corinne Majewski, Oak Brook
I can now participate fully in life- no longer do I need to ask people to repeat what they say- many times I didn’t ask people to repeat and I retired from the conversation. People are now hearing my opinion more often. Every step of this process was first class. I was comfortable with everyone at the hearing center and am so thankful my husband took the time to check out my options and chose HHC for me. I highly recommend the Hearing Health Center to one and all. -Dolores Burdick, Chicago
My first appointment with The Hearing Health Center was the first day of the rest of my (new) life. My experience was life changing. Literally. Words matter and yet I have difficulty finding the words that could begin to truly describe my larger than life experience. Today I feel healthier as a result of my “ear buds”, as my youngest grandson calls them. I can hear the precious voices of my son and my grandchildren; I can hear them laugh again. Cry again. Ask me to play with them. I can hear the wind in the trees, the birdies singing and the rain as it comes down from the Heavens. I’m not exhausted from trying to hear all the time. Gone is the need to isolate myself because I can’t hear. I have my life back, all thanks to the kindest, caring, most competent team (who really feel more like friends) at the Oakbrook Hearing Health Center. -Celeste Kelley, Oak Brook
Everything very cordial, timely, and effective & personal, pleasant and of HIGH VALUE. Complete hearing is so important- Hearing Health Center provides all. -Bert Robins, Chicago
I remained skeptical right up until the moment I first walked into the Hearing Health Center in Highland Park. My family had finally convinced me to submit to a hearing test. Without realizing it, I had gradually begun withdrawing from the routine family conversations, becoming increasingly quiet and reserved. I was literally unaware of what I was missing every single day as my hearing deteriorated. My family would compensate and enable me by shouting directly at me in order to draw me back into our conversations. In effect, I was making them pay for my vanity. Finally, I took the step and called the Hearing Health Center. It was the best call I have ever made. I was invited in for an evaluation by their caring, professional staff. Confirming my deteriorating condition, I was presented with many different and varied options for remediation, and the staff again helped me choose the most appropriate solution for my individual situation. Thanks to their recommendations, my improvement was immediate and my improvement was profound. My hearing loss had been gradual, so I simply was not aware of everything that I was missing in my daily life. Thanks to the entire staff at Hearing Health Center, the results have been life changing for me, and for my family. The staff at Hearing Health Center has restored all of the sounds of daily life which I had been missing out on, including my grandchildren. The entire staff at Hearing Health Center is devoted to your personal well-being and your complete satisfaction. They remain available to assist you in every way, even encouraging you to come in and offer feedback. They are proactive in following up regularly and consistently. You have the feeling that your feedback is important to them because they care. They are attentive and responsive, and they listen to you fully before they offer the best solution. Best yet, they are always available for you, supporting you all the way. I will always be grateful to the Hearing Health Center staff for putting me back in touch with my family. It has changed my life in ways that I never even thought were needed.
