A Personal Message from Owner, Jonathan Lipschutz

Since the founding of Berkeley Hearing Center in 1955, our focus has been on giving our time, energy, respect, and attention to the needs of each individual.

We demonstrate our commitment to our patients by listening to their specific issues and needs and then addressing them with our knowledge, experience, expertise and compassion while applying state-of-the-art technology to achieve the best outcomes.

By adhering to these foundational principles, Berkeley Hearing Center is a recognized leader of five-star audiological care, individualized service, and the most advanced hearing aid and assistive listening technology available in the Bay Area.

Since the opening of Berkeley Hearing Center, we’ve had the honor to serve tens of thousands of satisfied patients, spanning multiple generations in some families.

Establishing the hearing care bar at such a high level is the result of our tireless efforts to serve patients like you. Though there are many reasons why patients choose Berkeley Hearing Center, here are six reasons why many new patients come to us.

Six Reasons Why Patients Choose Berkeley Hearing

#1 - Advanced Audiological Care

Our patients come to us because we are experts in what we do. We have put together a team focused on providing the most advanced audiological care available in the area. Our combined expertise ensures that our patients have their hearing healthcare needs met at a professional, compassionate, and comprehensive level.

#2 - Caring for Tens of Thousands of Patients for 7 Decades

We might be 70 years old, but we only get better with age. Berkeley Hearing Center has served tens of thousands of patients since we opened our doors. We have learned a thing or two along the way. Our audiologists have served pages of every possible age, multiple generations of families, and countless organizations, establishing ourselves as a stable, trusted hearing care provider to Berkeley, CA and the Bay Area.

#3 – Compassion Equals Comfort

The focus of Berkeley Hearing Center is our patients. Our compassion overflows into creating comfort the minute you walk through the door. John, our office manager, helps create a relaxed atmosphere where every patient feels like they are a member of the family and a special favorite, because they are.

#4 - We're Not Bound to a Particular Manufacturer

The right hearing aid should fit the unique circumstances, budget, and lifestyle of the patient. After all, we don’t wear them, our patients do. Because we are not bound to any particular manufacturer, our patients have a broader range of devices to choose from, allowing them to find the perfect match to meet all of their needs.


#5 - Our Unique Journey to Better Hearing

In seven decades of hearing healthcare, things have changed, and we have kept up with those changes, not only in relation to technology, but also in how we care for our patients. Our unique journey to better hearing health begins with professionalism, compassion, and a comprehensive approach, keeping our focus on the needs of our patients. We strive to make every step along your hearing care journey as seamless as possible while providing effective treatment solutions.


#6 – We Educate and Empower

We want our patients to enjoy the greatest possible quality of life and independence. To accomplish our objective, we educate and empower, providing the highest level of understanding regarding their specific condition while providing them with the hope and encouragement to be the very best they can be.

  • I was on vacation and had a bad case of swimmers ear and I got an appointment here within 24 hours and he cleaned my ear wax or with an expert touch. It's great to be able to hear again! - Jonathan Matthew Beck

  • I can’t say enough about my entire experience at Berkeley Hearing Center. Jonathon has vast knowledge and experience not to mention patience and compassion. My type of hearing loss coupled with sound sensitivity due to migraine makes my hearing aide needs tricky. With that in mind I was actually referred to Jonathan by another audiologist because she knew he would have the expertise required for my situation. She was absolutely right. Jon, who runs the front of the house so to speak was also wonderful to work with. This is THE practice to come to for thorough, compassionate, expert care. - Laura Garcia

  • Great service! Jonathan and John have supported me through thick and thin. From Jonathan’s initial exam and subsequent fitting to my losing my aids twice. John with his basso profundo now takes care of some minor repairs, leaving Jonathan to concentrate on the heavy lifting. - Mark Graham
