The Place for Better Hearing
At the Place for Better Hearing in Cincinnati, OH we have proudly provided outstanding patient care for 14 years. We treat each patient as family and directly serve their individual hearing needs. We stress that successful treatment for hearing loss requires a great relationship between the patient and their provider.
The Place for Better Hearing is not a “one-size-fits-all” facility. Your lifestyle, your dexterity, the shape and severity of your hearing loss, the size and shape of your ear canals, and your preferences all factor into which hearing aids are right for you.
If you suspect hearing loss, you will need a comprehensive hearing test from a hearing healthcare provider. An assessment of your hearing usually begins with an examination of your ear. The hearing healthcare provider is looking for anything that might be blocking your ears, such as earwax or other physical objects, and is also checking the physical appearance of your eardrum.
We value being a part of the local Cincinnati, OH communities and believe in treating our patients as if they are family. We offer state-of-the-art hearing aids and service all brands of hearing aids. The Place for Better Hearing is committed to helping patients understand their hearing loss and finding the best solution for their hearing loss needs and their lifestyle at an affordable price. For better hearing in a size and shape that fits your needs, call us today!
