Helping You Through Better Hearing

The Hearing Center has been owned and operated by the Haynes family since 1987. We're now in our second generation; Chas Haynes is carrying on the tradition of patient-focused excellence his father began more than three decades ago.

Because this is our family practice, it's more than just a business to us. We take our responsibility to our patients very seriously. If you need our help with anything related to your hearing or your hearing aids, you can give us a call or drop by and we'll take care of it right away. We've built strong relationships with our patients over the years, and that's our favorite part of the job — getting to know people and seeing how their hearing aids are changing their lives.

Even if you bought hearing aids somewhere else and they're not working for you, come see us! We'll do anything we can to help, and we won't charge you a nickel. That's how our family has always done things. We believe it's the right thing to do.

Your First Appointment

  • Both of our locations are accessible, easy-to-find, and welcoming.
  • When you arrive, we will generally ask you about your hearing and make sure you're comfortable. If you have any questions about the testing process, we are happy to answer them.
  • The first step in the process is to complete a hearing test. We'll show you to our hearing booth and begin a standard hearing test. Depending on those results, we may also do some speech discrimination testing, which shows us how well you understand what's being said to you.
  • After the tests are over, we'll explain to you what's going on with your hearing. There are two main factors that go into hearing loss. One is your hearing threshold, which we determine with a tone test. The second factor us your speech discrimination scores. We'll help you understand the difference between the two and what your results mean for you.
  • If you do have hearing loss, we'll share our recommendations. In many cases, but not all cases, we will determine that hearing aids may be a good fit for you, and we'll explain your best hearing aid options. We will talk to you about what you need from hearing aids and what your budget is, and based on all those factors, we'll suggest a particular kind of hearing aid that we think will help you.
  • We can let you try on demo units to see how hearing aids will feel and how they might work for you. We want to make sure you're comfortable with any decision you make about getting hearing aids.
