Real Patient Reviews

“I was greeted very warmly. The process was smooth. The audiologist was honest with me and I respected that. Great experience!”

- Dale L.

Len Dawson

“These new hearing aids are terrific. I don’t even feel them in my ears and they’re practically invisible. If you want to see someone who is really going to take care of you and follow through, go see Associated Audiologists.”

Hall of Fame Quarterback, Former KMBC Channel 9 Sports Director, and Hearing Aid Patient

Hadley Warwick

“These hearing aids greatly assist me in my interactions with my staff and patients. But more importantly, they have improved my relationship with my wife. I can hear better than many people who are half my age. Wearing hearing aids definitely makes me feel younger.”

D.V.M., and Hearing Aid Patient

Linda Alexander

“Wearing hearing aids has opened up a whole new world for me. My only regret is that I didn’t see an audiologist about my hearing loss sooner. I cheated myself out of a lot of years of hearing. I don’t think you realize what you are missing out on until you can hear.”

Hearing Aid Patient

Lisa Kallsen

“For so many years, I wouldn’t take part in conversations because of my hearing loss. I would actually exclude myself from situations where I knew I wasn’t going to be able to understand what people were saying. These hearing aids have changed my life tremendously.”

Hearing Aid Patient

John Hunkeler

“I have received excellent care from Associated Audiologists and am very happy with my results. I should have done this a long time ago. Hearing aids have made a big difference in my life!”

M.D., Ophthalmologist and Hearing Aid Patient

Sylvia Kenner

“I was able to bend over and tie my shoes after my first treatment for BPPV. It brought tears to my eyes. That’s something I haven’t been able to do for years. My audiologist is just delightful to work with and explained everything to me regarding my diagnosis and treatment.”

Dizziness and Balance Patient

Burton Gordon

“You know, it’s an awful thing to lose your hearing. But with the help of Associated Audiologists and the technology we have today, I am living a normal life.”

Hearing Aid Patient

Danny Zeck

“My audiologist has always been very patient, helpful and professional in adjusting my hearing aids. I just hear everything better now. Until you have hearing aids, you don’t realize how much you need them. Then, when you put those hearing aids in, you’re like, ‘Wow!’”

Owner, Zeck Ford, Leavenworth, Kan., and Hearing Aid Patient

Joe Leto

“These hearing aids can communicate wirelessly with each other, and with the remote that Associated Audiologists programmed for me. When I select the restaurant setting, they even cut out the background noise. On the golf course, they reduce wind noise, and I can even hear a whisper, something I haven’t been able to do for years.”

Hearing Aid Patient

Kirby Miller

“My audiologist’s patience and the care she gave me were outstanding. She was very reassuring and provided me with the guidance to help me through this. I feel like I have my life back. It’s such a blessing not to hear that roar in my ears anymore.”

Tinnitus Patient

Max Urick

“I wanted to regain as much of my hearing as I possibly could. My experience with Associated Audiologists has been life-changing. I’m glad I found them!”

Hearing Aid Patient and Former Kansas State Athletic Director

Natalie Krebs

“I have seen audiologists in Belgium, California and Boston, but I never felt they measured up to the care I received from Associated Audiologists. They are extremely knowledgeable and I trust them. They’re not just a business. They care. They have my best interests at heart.”

A Family Affair!

Robbi Grogan

“For anyone struggling with hearing loss, I would definitely recommend you get a second opinion. I have always been treated with respect, compassion and thoroughness at Associated Audiologists. I feel blessed that my hearing is so much better in great part thanks to Associated Audiologists, and I am enjoying my life even more!”
