When it comes to your hearing, your choice of a hearing healthcare professional is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Since a hearing aid can’t be prescribed like eyeglasses, the proper hearing aid recommendation and fitting is highly dependent on the judgment and skill of the professional selecting the instrument. We test your hearing, select and dispense the hearing instrument best suited to your personal, professional, cosmetic and financial needs.
Our goal is to provide you with the best possible hearing care we can based on your individual needs. We provide a comprehensive array of services related to evaluation, rehabilitation, and prevention of hearing impairment. We pledge to provide comprehensive hearing healthcare to individuals of all ages and are committed to assisting each patient towards the goal of improved quality of life through better hearing.
The Best Reason to Get Your Hearing Checked
If you watch your grandkids, it could save a life.
Finally! Your grandchildren's parents are going off on a weekend getaway and they're leaving the grandkids with you. Who better to babysit than Grandma and Grandpa?
Are you ready? Of course you are. Favorite snacks? Check. Bedtime stories? Check. Rubber ducky? Check. But you need more than just their favorite goodies to keep your grandkids comfortable and safe. For example, if they call out for you in the middle of the night, will you hear them?
According to the Better Hearing Institute, one in six Baby Boomers, and three in ten people over age 65, suffer from hearing loss. But the statistics don't tell the whole story. Almost everyone knows at least one person who has a hearing loss that affects his or her quality of life but resolutely refuses to acknowledge or do anything about it.
If you babysit your grandchild and you're one of the 24 million Americans who need hearing aids but don't have them yet, you might be putting your family at risk. Effective caregivers need to be environmentally vigilant to assure a child's safety; the ability to hear is a key component. The risks of not hearing a smoke or carbon monoxide detector, an intruder, or a child crying in the backyard could result in an injury, or far worse.
And it's not just the obvious dangers. Spending too much time speech reading while driving can cause a crash, as can failing to hear a siren. Older children also have been known to take advantage of an adult's hearing loss to get "permission" to do something the adult wouldn't agree to if they understood what the child said.

When I think back on the joys of raising my boys I remember most fondly the sound of their laughter. The joy of sound – be it laughter, music, or a simple conversation with someone – is one of the greatest we can receive.
Everyone I see is unique; each one has a particular level of hearing impairment and each one has the potential for better hearing with help.
I believe that all of us can identify those special sounds that bring us joy. I use my passion, experience and expertise in hearing technology to find and implement the best possible solution to enhance my patients' hearing experience.
I have been connecting people in the Rockford and surrounding areas with loved ones for 20 years. Licensed in both the State of Illinois and Wisconsin, through caring and compassion combined with dedication and skill I am able to make a difference in the lives of one patient at a time.
