If you're looking for the best in hearing care, we invite you to discover the Beltone Difference. It starts by making sure hearing trouble is actually hearing loss – many times it's not. If it is, you can try the tiniest and most advanced hearing aids you'll find anywhere – right here in the office. Add to that our compassionate hearing care and comprehensive aftercare, and you'll understand why Beltone patients are so satisfied. By choosing Beltone, you're assured a lifetime of individualized attention – for you and your hearing instruments.

A family owned business, V B Associates, Inc has done business as Beltone in West Georgia and East Alabama for three generations. Originally started in Columbus, Georgia, Mr. John Keel first worked with multiple hearing aid manufacturers but soon learned his customers preferred the quality of Beltone. Now, the Bray family operates full time offices in Columbus and LaGrange, Georgia along with Montgomery and Opelika, Alabama. Employing audiologists and licensed hearing aid specialists, the current staff at Beltone has over 100 years of hearing healthcare experience.

Our V B ASSOCIATES, INC. 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”.
