Hello Jonathan,

I just wanted to comment on yesterday's appointment with you and pass on my appreciation to you concerning the conversation we had on my question concerning over the counter hearing aids whose availability started this past month.
My decision to go with Berkeley Hearing Aid Center over two years ago is something I'll never regret. With your expertise and professionalism I ended up with the plan and devices that were best for me and included in that plan for the last two years and will continue for the next three more years some of the most outstanding care and service one could ever ask for. I couldn't be happier with the outstanding service you and co-owner John have provided. You have both been there when needed. At one time in non-open hours.. Try to get that level of service at Costco, Kaiser, or by purchasing hearing aids over the counter at Walmart or the several other retailers now selling hearing aids like they sell sunglasses.
I guess the over the counter experience could be compared to those that need dentures. Not even an option.
By purchasing my hearing aids through you as an Audiologist, I received a thorough evaluation, testing of my hearing needs and comprehensive scheduled checkups, plus needed hearing aid supplies when needed all for a set amount of years in the future, Try that with the aforementioned hearing aid options.
Did I pay more for choosing Berkeley Hearing Aid Center? Probably. Am I getting more than I would have if I had chosen Costco, Kaiser, or over the counter at a big box store? Without question and absolutely! Never have I regretted my decision, ever.
Thank You Berkeley Hearing aid Center, Jonathan, John and your staff for the wonderful service and devices you have provided..

How We Can Help

Comprehensive Hearing Evaluation at Berkeley Hearing Center

Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations

On a day-to-day basis, we don’t notice ourselves aging when we look in the mirror, yet when we review old pictures of ourselves, we can clearly see the differences.

The biggest problem with hearing loss is that like aging, it happens so gradually that it’s often impossible to notice any day-to-day differences. You have no way to compare your current level of hearing to what your hearing used to be like.

That’s why regular hearing assessments are so important. The earlier you can see a hearing care specialist upon experiencing the first signs of hearing loss, the better.


Advanced Hearing Aid Technology at Berkeley Hearing Center

Advanced Prescription Hearing Aid Technology

A racing car without a racing driver will never win a race. It’s very much the same when it comes to hearing technology.
