Helping You and Your Neighbors Hear Better in the Mahoning Valley
Our passion is helping smart people like you—people who are interested in staying connected and getting the most out of life—rediscover hearing. Our satisfaction comes from the joy our patients feel when they are hearing clearer, able to once again connect with friends, family, and the world around them.
We provide a full range of diagnostic and preventative hearing services, including hearing aid screening, evaluations, hearing aids, and rehabilitative and preventative counseling. You’ll be working with our highly trained staff to couple the latest in hearing aid technology with the best fit for your hearing needs.
Hearing Innovations has helped thousands of people in the Mahoning Valley area improve their hearing. Chances are we’ve helped your friends and neighbors, and we’re sure that we can help you, too.
“From the friendly atmosphere and the staff who greeted me, to the doctor’s professional, competent and thorough examination and treatment of my hearing loss—I highly recommend Hearing Innovations to anyone who is contemplating seeing an audiologist.”
Dr. William J. L., Patient
