What our patients had to say recently

"I'm sorry for fussing about the price of my hearing aids, because they are worth every penny! I love them!"

-Jeanette W. from Columbus, GA


"I have been wearing Beltone hearing aids for several years. I have never had any complaints. The workers are always so nice and have always tried to make my hearing as good as they possibly can. They are highly recommended by me and I will say to anyone needing help hearing - 'Beltone is the place to go!'"

-Charlotte T. from Eclectic, AL

Our Philosophy

Here at Beltone, we know how important good hearing is to the health and happiness of our patients. Hearing clearly keeps us connected with friends and loved ones, aware of our surroundings, and independent. Also, by keeping the brain properly stimulated, good hearing may lower our risk for Alzheimer's disease, depression and balance issues.

Our mission doesn't stop with finding just the right hearing instrument for each patient we serve. It continues with making sure you're totally comfortable with your hearing instruments in every way. Visit Beltone soon! And join the ranks of the “happily hearing”.
