Getting a hearing aid was not that difficult for me going to Chears

I needed hearing aids for a few years but was very reluctant to actually purchase them. Not only did they seem very expensive but I had heard so many horrible stories from people who had them! When I saw a newspaper article about Chears that said you could try the aids before you purchased them I decided to give them a try. When I met Kim she provided a lot of information and had me try a couple of different models. I was immediately hooked and have had very few issues. Kim and Sandra have both been very helpful and I would highly recommend Chears!!!

This was a great Experience

The services at Chears are awesome!  The entire team works with you to get the diagnosis and products right.  They follow-up with any issues immediately and persistently with vendors and others to ensure your satisfaction.  I too would give them more than 5 stars if I could!

Call Chears First!

I've noticed that the best customer experiences happen in transactions with businesses run by people who love what they do and do what they love. This is certainly my experience with Kim and Susan; they are knowledgeable, personable, and attentive to my particular and individual audiology needs. I am happy I called Chears first. If you need hearing aids or hearing assessment, I highly recommend starting hear ... uh... here.

Part II of a Hearing Story by Will W.

This is my dog. ChiChi, the chihuahua. For obvious reasons, he has super-sonic hearing ability. Just look at those ears! He will never need an audiologist.  His hearing is so acute that he is over-reactive to everything. If one sets his dinner plate down a bit hard he jumps back like he just saw a rattlesnake. Thunder, god forbid, sounds to him like the end of the world. In a T-storm, we can’t make him get out from under the covers.  We love him because he can protect our house. He can hear every footstep or sound, say if someone was even in our yard, he lets us know. He earns his dog food.

I, on the other hand, have lost some of my formerly-great hearing ability.

When it comes to audiologists, I do need one. And, I’m happy to say, and as I mentioned last week, I have found one, a good one. Thanks to the expert help from audiologists Kim Fishman, l am on my third pair of “demo” audio units and I’m already getting spoiled. With my units in place, ChiChi and I have the same super power of  hearing. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to hear every bird chirp, every floor squeak, and every voice ( but, please do be careful when you set down my plate, and, oh, you can quit shouting too).

The only problem I’m having is the reaction I get when I mention to someone that I’m wearing, um, “hearing aids”. Especially for young people.  I can practically see them putting me into the category of the wretched and from-this-point-forward invisible old person. You just might as well tell them that you just pooped in your Depends.

So, I tried something different the other day when I was taking a phone call using the current units. These things receive all sounds from my phone, music, calls, as well as all the beeps, chirps and other sounds it makes.  When they asked me, “Hey, how are you getting that call?

I didn’t even hear it ring”  I just gesture towards my ear (you can’t see anything there) and say, “oh, it’s just my Bluetooth devices… you know, the new tiny ones? Apple?… iPhone…?”   Now the reaction is great!  “Whoa, dude! That’s really cool, I haven’t heard of those!”   Therefore I resolve to never use the "H.A. words” again.

I’m going back to see Kim again this week. Maybe I will get to try out even another pair, or maybe I’ll just say that this pair is for me. I’ll leave that up to her patience and generosity. Nevertheless, life will never be the same!  I can hear you now.
