It is estimated that over 20 million Americans, young and old alike, are affected by some form of hearing impairment. All too many go through life with their hearing troubles unchecked and untreated. Yet, with all the advancements in hearing aid technology there is no need, no excuse to live in a world unnecessarily muted. The dedicated and professional staff at A-1 Hearing Aid Centers approaches each patient with quality care and the latest technology. Each patient's situation is treated as unique and each receives the best solution for his or her individual hearing impairment. The quality care provided and customer satisfaction since 1935 earned the center the Better Business Bureau Marketplace Torch Award for Ethics and Integrity in 2000. A-1 Hearing Aid Center wants you to know that there is no need to struggle with a hearing problem; there are answers and alternatives.

If we still have not convinced you to get your hearing checked, take it from the words of a grateful client, Eddie: "How nice it is to be able to hear the birds sing and the crickets chirp and not to miss every other word spoken from a friend." Think about how your hearing affects your life and perhaps you will find that you have been missing too much.
