We are starting a revolution
in hearing care.
Revolution Hearing: Our Story
After fitting hearing aids for the last 8 years, we have observed that there are too many families missing out on what quality hearing care could bring to their lives, and we purposed ourselves to changing this.
Family is incredibly important to us at Revolution Hearing. Just as we would do anything for our own family and loved ones, we will do the same for every patient who walks into our door (or whose door we walk into with our mobile visits).
Revolution Hearing is all about honesty and value delivered where you are most comfortable – whether that’s in your home or in our office. Yes, you heard right, we’ll come to you!
We will never sell you something you don’t need and will collaborate with you every step of the way to get the best hearing solution for your loss and means. We will research your insurance benefits and always provide valuable solutions and alternatives that meet your needs.
Each patient is guided through the diagnostic process, presented with solution options, fit from a variety of manufacturer choices, and given time to experience the improvement before selecting what’s best in your situation.
If you or a loved one are suffering from hearing loss, Revolution Hearing is at your service. We want to care for your hearing loss for life and we will earn your trust for that privilege.
