    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.

    Jonathan has been utterly professional, yet personable, and has patiently steered me through the technical aspects of hearing aid acclimation. More importantly, he has a level of empathy which makes the psychological acceptance of my condition less onerous. I highly recommend him for this process!

    After 42 years of hearing impairment I finally found the perfect audiologist and hearing aid. 42 years ago I lost my hearing in my left ear and developed significant hearing loss in my right ear. I've had a very difficult time finding a hearing aid that would work for my good ear because I have an autoimmune disorder that causes my hearing in that ear to greatly fluctuate. Over the years I tried various hearing aids, but when my hearing would suddenly decrease, I found that using a FM Hearing system actually worked better than the hearing aids I had. This was a cumbersome solution, but I accepted it. A year ago I came to Jonathan when my hearing in my good ear sharply decreased for 6 months. He is the first Audiologist I have seen who really took my hearing fluctuations into consideration when recommending a hearing aid and he really understood what I experience at my different levels of hearing distortion. He has worked so hard to make sure I get the most out of my hearing aid; he is kind, compassionate and a hearing aid genius. This is the first time that I actually enjoy wearing my hearing aid. I grab for it when I wake up and I don't take it out until bedtime. John, his office staff, is so helpful and always makes sure I can get in to see him right away whenever I need an adjustment. My only regret is that I did not get to work with Jonathan years earlier.

    Outstanding Service Extraordinary expertise, caring,organized, and very patient. Warm and friendly.and excepting. I felt comfortable and welcomed. Instructions are clear. I adjusted the first day of wearing the aids. It is wonderful to include mu daughters to assist and reinforce technical details It is a revelation to hear sounds that we’re familiar, and to hear clearly again Thank you for your great expertise and service. Warmly, Vangie Buell

    A few years ago, I upgraded to behind-the-ear bluetooth enabled ReSound hearing aids. The support I have received from audiologist Jonathan Lipshutz has been beyond wonderful. He always is informed and personable, willing to explain all the components and try out changes with full attention to my input and experience. Office Manager John Chakan is reliably friendly, helpful, and well-informed. I highly recommend the Berkeley Hearing Center; I can't imagine better support than what I receive here!

    This has probably been my best-ever consumer experience. Jonathon was SO patient, well-informed, and intelligent that for the first time ever, my mother was able to find hearing aides (after trying at 3 other places over the last 3 years). He was extremely patient and thoughful, and, I think, tried out 7 different kinds over 9 months with her, until he found one that was workable for her (my mother's ears are small!). He explained everything in clear and thoughtful ways that left my mother willing to follow through with all his instructions (my mother was a scientist). So, I can not recommend this place highly enough. People were friendly, kind, patient, knowledgeable, and willing to go beyond the normal limit to make sure things are right for people.
