Patient reviews from rochester, NY

"I can't believe how much better I can hear now..."

Well, I just turned 60 and decided to have my hearing tested. The good news is I needed hearing aids. I say good news because I can't believe how much better I can hear now. Dr. John McNamara was so knowledgeable and helped me select the proper hearing aids for my hearing loss. No more saying "What?", and I can finally hear the TV at a normal volume. Fantastic service and support from a well run office.



Andrea is wonderful! I have been a client on Ontario Hearing for about 15 years. The staff are friendly and efficient. I have purchased 3 or 4 pairs of hearing aids here. Each time, Andrea makes sure my devices are working properly and fit well.  I will continue to recommend Ontario Hearing.


"Our experience has been incredible."

My entire family (3 generations) have been going to Ontario Hearing Instruments for almost 20 years. Every aspect of our experience has been incredible. The staff is amazing. Dr. Segmund is almost like a family member to us. She truly understands our challenges and is ALWAYS looking for the best possible solutions for our hearing loss. I can't even count the number of times she has said something to the effect of: "I was at this conference and saw this and thought specifically of you and your dad - I think this would really help". My hearing loss has been in the "profound" range for years. I do not know how I could have managed this more effectively than I have with the help of Ontario Hearing. I have recommended their services many times for many people and will continue to do so. Definitely worth looking into. They truly provide amazing service to all their patients.
