People who wear hearing aids have been asking for rechargeable aids for years. As a child, I can remember having a "battery drawer" at home because so many things needed to have the batteries replaced regularly. This is simply not the case any longer. For most hearing...
Adapting to hearing the world more normally using hearing aids is different for everyone depending upon many factors including the type and degree of hearing loss, how long the hearing loss has gone untreated, and what the individual’s daily hearing needs are. There...
As crazy as 2020 has been, the season of Thanksgiving, Christmas, or perhaps Hannukah is upon us. It is at this time of year that we typically spend the most time with family and friends. Sometimes there are friends or family members that we only get to visit with...
First of all, let me say that the most appropriate style (shape and size) of hearing aids for each patient is often affected or determined by the patient's hearing loss and his/her ability to manage the aids on a daily basis physically. For example, it would be...
First of all, let me say this is not meant to demean any individual or profession. In more than 22 years of practice, I have known some very skilled and reliable Audiologists and just as many hearing instrument specialists. Unfortunately, I’ve also known poorly...
People who have trouble hearing, whether they wear hearing aids or not, typically get some of their speech understanding visually – especially when there is background noise, or several people are talking at the same time. This is commonly referred to as lipreading or...
Over the past several years, online hearing screenings have become increasingly common. They can be found in multiple places online, including the websites of hearing aid manufacturers and some hearing care providers. Although they can sometimes be a useful marketing...
Why Do Hearing Aids Cost So Much? A common question I get asked often, and it is a valid one. Several things contribute to the costs of getting hearing help, and they sum up into two categories. First, each hearing aid manufacturer spends 100 million dollars, or more,...
Over the past 22 years of working with people with hearing loss I have noted that there are several difficulties that are very common among them in regard to being able to hear other people’s conversation. Some of those are — People talk to me while looking the...
Couldn’t be more satisfied, don’t have to ask people to repeat themselves!
"I have been most pleased with Harmony Audiology and Hearing because I have had difficulty hearing for quite a while and these are comfortable to wear. It gives me and the people around me great pleasure because I don’t have to ask people to repeat themselves anymore either. The staff at Harmony are overly helpful making adjustments to my hearing aid and I couldn’t be more satisfied."
Very pleasant and informative!
"I went to Harmony Audiology & Hearing and Dr. Craig fitted me with hearing aids that also target my tinnitus and I felt like the doctor took plenty of time to make sure it fit well and we had a lot of follow up visits. He was great at readjusting what needed to be tweaked and his front desk help was pleasant as can be."
Great customer service.
"I value the professionalism employees of Harmony Audiology & Hearing use to present themselves, as well as how they handle customers and what they’re willing to do for us. It’s just a good experience. I’ve been going there for nine months.
They’re great. They treat you like family, really. They’re easy to talk to and they’ll actually try to do anything they can to correct problems you’re having. They’re very willing to work on any adjustments with hearing aids, etc. I appreciate their service."
"Dr. Craig’s suggestion that I try an aid changed my life. I have had Menieres since the young age of 14. I have been told all my life ( I am presently 54 ) that my hearing would only get worse and there was nothing that would help me. After seeing Dr. Craig and trying an aid I have been blessed with the things in life I was missing. I no longer avoid conversations for fear of not understanding things said to me and being embarrased. Thanks, Dr. Craig"
A wonderful experience!
"I’ve been going to Harmony Audiology & Hearing since last October. I was going to another doctor, but it was so hard to get in. My hearing aid was broken, and they wanted a lot of money to fix it. But Dr. Craig was able to do it cheaply.
At Harmony Audiology & Hearing, I never have a problem getting in. When I got my new hearing aid, Dr. Craig did some testing and completely adjusted them. I haven’t needed them tweaked since then. I like them just the way they are.
You should give Dr. Craig a chance. He understands, and he really wants you to be able to hear. It’s not just getting you in and out. He wants you to be able to hear!"

My hearing aids have made an absolute difference in my life.
"I got new hearing aids from Harmony Audiology & Hearing and I am very happy about it. I had another experience in another clinic in Memphis and I was very disappointed by them because:
1- They didn’t seem to understand their products, and 2- I had those hearing aids for 4 years and I could never get them to work properly.
These hearing aids have been fitted and adjusted properly and they have made an absolute difference in my life. Being able to hear people talking, even in a crowded environment like in the restaurant where I work and being able to watch TV at a normal volume, it’s made a huge difference. The people are very knowledgeable and I could not recommend them highly enough."
I would recommend Harmony Audiology to anyone having hearing loss.
"I couldn’t be anymore pleased with what I have from Harmony Audiology & Hearing. I just went for my third visit and my hearing is almost up to 100%– because the volume increases gradually. They are informative and make me feel comfortable. It was all new to me, but Allen Craig put it in and explained everything in detail. At the age I am, he made me feel comfortable and showed me his hearing aid, and how it was invisible. Basically, that made me feel comfortable with what we picked.
Harmony Audiology & Hearing assessed records that I had from another audiologist and, after choosing the correct hearing aid that would work for me, we got the hearing aid. He’s seen me a couple times since and checked my ear and cleaned the hearing aid out as needed. He has let me know that I’m not going to be on my own, and has told me to call if I have any questions in between appointments. They have made me feel very comfortable and, when I’ve had any issues, Allen has gone in and looked and corrected things."
I'm glad I found this place.
