“If it sounds too good to be true – it probably is.” In the case of Accurate Hearing it is true! They are the only local hearing aid company to publish their prices and I saved about $2,000 on my Starkey Halo 110’s. I was diagnosed with moderate to severe hearing loss by my ENT Specialist, who gave me a thorough hearing test and quoted me a price for the hearing aids that suited my hearing loss. I decided to shop around and went to another local hearing aid company and got a similar quote. I researched the internet and found Accurate Hearing was quoting considerably less. I was very skeptical, but after asking Joel a few questions I made an appointment. I received a similar hearing test to the other two places and was promised the same customer service. I was able to upgrade the aids I wanted and finished up saving about $2,000 on the prices quoted by the other two places. When I made my decision Joel had the aids shipped to him overnight so I got them the next day. After the hearing test Joel programmed my new aids to suit my hearing loss, but set them on low volume, because when you are new to wearing them the volume that is required to give you optimum hearing is way too loud until you get used to them. So I have to keep going back to have them adjusted and after four weekly visits I am still not there yet. After I had the aids a few days I had trouble with one of them beeping. I went back to Joel and he called Starkey and after we described the problem they said the best thing would be to send me a new pair overnight, so I got new ones the next day. Great service and no problem since. The Halo range can be paired to my I phone with Bluetooth, so I can adjust the volume easily if I need to – plus my calls are sent to my hearing aids, so I have no problem hearing on the phone. Also I play my music directly through my hearing aids and Joel helped my through all that. The noise cancelling is very impressive – if I use the vacuum cleaner, for instance, I can hear the sound reduce after a couple of seconds. Other times I notice a reduction in traffic noise and even flushing the toilet. I have a three year warranty and if I lose or damage them during that time they will replace each one once at a 20% cost to me. Also, Joel only charges 25c each for batteries – way cheaper than the other suppliers. I would recommend Accurate Hearing to anybody – particularly for price, but also for service.

Dr. Mary Thorpe, in relating to my 93 year old mother, did my family an invaluable service. Over a period of some three years, Dr. Thorpe patiently assessed my mother's deteriorating hearing until it became obvious to the patient herself that remediation was a must. My mother finally realized that lack of hearing can lead to dangerous misunderstandings with care providers. Accordingly, Dr. Thorpe's skill and patience finally resulted in fitting my mother with the right kind of device which makes interpersonal relationships more productive and rewarding. My family can't thank Dr. Thorpe enough for her unwavering service to our family, until we finally accomplished the end goal of improving my mother's quality of daily life. Neale D. 10/2/14
I had such a positive experience with Dr Thorpe at The HearCare Audiology Center. The office is beautiful, the staff so professional and welcoming. Dr Thorpe was so kind and attentive in helping get my hearing tested and ordering just the right hearing aids. It was a magical day when I was finally fitted with my hearing aids. Dr Thorpe took her time making sure every setting was right including all the instructions I needed use and care for them. I highly recommend HearCare!
