Thank you for the wonderful service you have provided to me this past year. The improvements to my hearing have allowed me to enjoy my family to a richer degree as well as enhanced by day to day living in general. I can enjoy almost everything other people take for granted with their sense of hearing. My life is so much better thanks to all of you and your skills.

I know first hand the difference hearing aids can make. Having been hearing impaired for more than 25 years, I have found that people treat the hard of hearing as though they are stupid or annoying at times. Sometimes people don’t want to have to speak slowly or repeat things, so they leave you out of conversations. You don’t hear birds singing, you can’t understand what your grandchildren are saying, you can’t hear the timer go off on the oven, and you avoid parties because it is so exhausting to try to follow conversations. Not being able to hear well can jeopardize your employment as well.
Luckily, Dr. Becker and Dr. Ledtke are thorough, skilled, professional, understanding, and quick to help. Before being referred to Dr. Tim Becker about eight years ago, I had struggled for several years with different audiologists to find a hearing aid solution to my difficult and unusual pattern of hearing loss. Within a month with Dr. Becker, I had hearing aids that helped me in my noisy work environment. I was completely impressed.
I have also found that once you have purchased your aids from them, you will have their ready support. Both Dr. Becker and Dr. Ledtke are great about squeezing me in for an appointment if I have a sudden problem with my earmold tubes or whatever.
New hearing aid users should know that adjusting to hearing aids is very different from adjusting to a pair of glasses. Give it time and effort. You might want to use your hearing aids at home first, and if you are feeling overwhelmed and tired, take them out for an hour and then try again. I was severely hearing impaired by the time I got my aids, and I was completely confused by all the odd noises I was hearing for what seemed to be the first time. You will be hearing all kinds of sounds you’re not used to, and you have to retrain your brain. Dr. Becker and Dr. Ledtke will give you pointers to help with that, and they are happy to make adjustments if you need them.
People shopping for hearing aids should also realize that the better trained your audiologist, the more success you will have with your aids. After dealing with many audiologists, I can say that Dr. Becker and Dr. Ledtke are among the best you will find. Their prices are fair and reasonable as well.
I have referred many people, including my mother, to them, and I would recommend that you give either of them a try. You will not be disappointed.
