Top 5 Reasons for Choosing Us


We are a nonprofit, a 501 ©(3). Compared to our for-profit competitors, our worldview is different: We focus on you, not sales contests and quarterly profits.


Image

1. Trust

We are an efficient, modern nonprofit that earns its way. As a 501 (c)(3), we are structured to concentrate on you, our mission since 1978.

The income we earn from professional services is reinvested directly into our operations, advanced training, and new technologies. Not a single penny goes to sales commissions, sales contests, or bonuses.

"I travel here because I have complete trust and get upmost care from them. Christy and Marilyn go above and beyond. Christy's knowledge of my hearing and treatment is exceptional. Marilyn helps me with my scheduling and any problems I have with absolute professionalism. I know I am in goods hands with them. I wouldn't go anywhere else and I would advise anyone to see them for treatment. They are the Best!!!" —Joan F.

2. Clinical Skill

If you're shopping for speech or hearing services, be sure to compare our clinical team's credentials and experience with those of other candidates. Only audiologists have the clinical skills to rigorously interpret the results of screenings and hearing evaluations, and fit and fine-tune hearing aids. We do not employ technicians or hearing-aid dispensers.

3. Choice of Hearing-Aid Brands

Why is choice important? It ensures that you get the right mix of features for your hearing challenges.

We're not a manufacturer's hearing-aid franchise or big-box retailer that offers only one brand. Offering only one brand of hearing aids risks getting the features you need. No single brand of hearing aids is a universal solution. Don't be fooled. Your choice of hearing-aid brands is vital.

"Sertoma Speech & Hearing Centers has always treated me well, no matter what the problem, explaining what and how to handle my hearing aids." —provided by anonymous survey

4. No Deceptive Sales or Pricing

We don't run ads announcing, "Wanted: 30 people with hearing loss to evaluate new digital hearing aids!"

We take another approach: We respect you. You're welcome to try our hearing-aid brands and models any time you want.

If you have a hearing loss that needs treating (not all do), your audiologist will discuss all your treatment options with you to find the best solution that fits your budget.
