We believe in relationships, not transactions. Hearing care and treatment is not a one time purchase or visit. As Doctors of Audiology, we are concerned with your overall health. Your medical history, medications, and conditions are key factors in determining the best treatment for you. Just like with your internist, dentist, and other medical specialists you see, someone who knows you, your history, your family, and your needs is always best. Changes in your medications, heart function, memory, blood pressure, and other medical conditions can affect and cause changes in your hearing and processing ability.
We want to be the doctors you trust to coordinate your hearing health with the rest of your health.
We don’t treat ears, we treat the brain. It is the brain that processes and makes sense of the sound transmitted from your ears. It is critical for the brain to receive the correct amount and quality of sound stimulation. Hearing Health Center was the first practice, nationwide, to recognize “auditory deprivation”. Inadequate auditory stimulation to the brain causes physical (loss of brain tissue and brain shrinkage) and processing (inability to understand clearly) deterioration.
We offer and utilize every manufacturer, model, and type of hearing aid/device. Most hearing aid practices and dispensers use one or two hearing aid manufacturers or brands. Uniquely, Hearing Health Center has access to every manufacturer and type of hearing device available. We want to make sure that you get what is right for you.
We specialize in re-training the brain. Hearing treatment is more than just putting a piece of plastic on or in your ears. The best hearing treatment…successful hearing treatment…requires verification of the sound reaching your brain and training the brain how to accept, integrate, and use all of the new stimulation.
“You don’t just do it the ‘easy way.’ You do it the right way! And I am but one of many people who is able to enjoy myself more fully because of what you have done on my behalf.”

“The hearing analysis was very thorough, and, as a result, my hearing aids have made a positive difference in my life.”
“It is the one doctor’s office I always feel better leaving. It is a friendly family feeling. I would highly recommend the Hearing Health Center! Hearing Health Center is the Mayo Clinic for hearing.”
“After trying other hearing doctors, I found Hearing Health Center to help me with tinnitus and limited hearing in my left ear. I am so thankful I found them. The doctors at HHC are extremely knowledgeable, understanding, and helpful. I tell all my friends with hearing problems, ‘Go to Hearing Health Center! You will NOT be disappointed.'”
“It is so much easier to hear my family and friends speaking. Hearing better and clearer makes my life more enjoyable and pleasant. I no longer need to ask, ‘What did you say?'”

“Now that I know I can hear, the only ‘problem’ that remains for me is continuing to learn how to hear. I’ve spent most of the last 23 days going through Hearing Health Center’s step-by-step guide to adjusting to my new hearing aid. That book—written by Hearing Health Center staff—is worth the price of the hearing aid! From the moment I first walked in the door at Hearing Health Center, I was treated like a friend, not a patient!”
