I've struggled with hearing my whole life starting with the tests the nurse would give in elementary school. In college I learned to sit in the front of the room and I always held the phone to my right ear because it worked better. More than anything, I wanted to be a teacher. I was almost ready to student teach when I had another hearing test. The feedback I got was that teaching would be very difficult and it wasn't too late to change careers. That was not a choice, so I had surgery for otosclerosis. Armed with my copper ear parts, I went on to teach, loving every minute, for 32 years. But I knew my hearing was getting worse. After retiring, I got a flyer in the mail offering a free hearing test. Suzanne was so friendly and patient. My test showed that I had significant hearing loss and that I was a good candidate for hearing aids. We made a mold of my ear and the new hearing aids were ordered that day. Two weeks later, I tried them on. Immediately I knew that my hearing was better. But the "in the canal" aids did not feel right. My ears are small and they felt so tight. After a few days I called Suzanne. Again, she was so patient and listened to my concerns. Not a week later, I took them back. That day I left with new equipment. There is now a tiny piece in my ear and most of the hearing aid fits behind my ear. Suzanne helped me pair the aids with my phone, (which, by the way, is the coolest tool) expertly explained the basics, and I absolutely love them. The world is a very noisy place! It's been a bit overwhelming, but definitely life changing. My family has noticed, and I'm noticing sounds that I forgot even existed. This was the easiest and most rewarding gift I have given myself. The Hearing Aid Institute is a wonderful place to get your hearing life back.

As usual, the good folks at The Hearing Aid Institute were very helpful. All I needed were new wires but they took good care of me.

I was impressed from the first phone call. Receptionist was friendly and efficient. The professional staff seemed thorough with what the audiology test would cover. My test results were well explained, as were my options for hearing aids. I felt the doctor was exceptional.

I have been using Hearing Aid Institute for many years. I began when I was teaching music and have continued with them through my retirement years. I have had great help from them over the years, and have particular needs while working in the field of music with big band performances, working with young musicians in schools, and just listening to great music as much as I can. Suzanne Yoder, in the Bozeman location, does a fantastic job in keeping me informed and keeping my devices serviced and updated.
