We don’t just meet our patient’s expectations, we rise above them.

A first class facility and audiologist to call your own await you. We have the resources and tools to bring comfort back to your life and rehabilitate your hearing. Every practitioner in our office is of the highest caliber and extensively vetted to ensure that your care outshines every idea you may have about the experience.

With just a single 60 minute consultation, your life could immeasurably change for the better. We will then show you what the word “after-care” really means, because our duty to soar beyond your expectations doesn’t end after that first visit.

Our Values

Every person is different, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that everyone’s hearing loss and needs are different too.

At Ascent, we make sure you get the most out of your new investment by taking the time to recommend the best possible hearing solution for you. We do this by thoroughly checking your hearing loss during a complete in-person hearing assessment in a sound booth, completing a comprehensive lifestyle assessment and custom fitting your new hearing aids using the newest technologies available. We take into account not only your hearing loss, but unique factors like your lifestyle, style preferences, dexterity, ear size, shape and cosmetic concerns. That’s why getting fit with the advice and the experience of a hearing healthcare professional cannot be overemphasized.

Buying a hearing aid is a big step forward in your life, and we want to make sure you make the best possible decision for yourself. That’s why we offer free hearing consultations and trial periods. We want to be sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase.
