Today, we're giving you a 2021 mid-year update on what's going on with hearing aids and the mask. (1) We're seeing increased demand in custom hearing aids that only go inside the ear. That's because it can be uncomfortable and frustrating to wear hearing aids with your mask. (2) Some patients who get those custom-style hearing aids are feeling the "occlusion effect," which is when you hear your voice echoing or feel a vibration when you talk. (3) Once we stop wearing masks, just know that custom-styles also won't be as comfortable as the receiver-in-canal hearing aids that I recommend. If you’re wondering whether hearing aids are right for you, we can help! Our contact information is listed below, and we'd love to help you with all your needs.

As a second-generation hearing aid specialist, he’s been working in the hearing aid world since he was 18, when his uncle invited him to apprentice at the family practice. Chris loved that he could combine his interest in technology with a desire to help people. Chris has seen what a difference hearing aids have made in his own family, and he’s eager to give other families that same experience.
