“As the owner of Hear & Now Hearing Center, I have been providing complete hearing health care in Lane County for more than 35 years with the clear objective of helping patients achieve a better life through better hearing. My interest in the hearing health care field came when my grandmother started losing her hearing and was prescribed a hearing aid. Her use of the hearing aid made her part of the family again. Seeing the joy in her face made a tremendous impact on me. I have seen the same joy in the faces of many patients who have come to us for help. I want you to experience the maximum hearing health. As a licensed and trained professional, I make your hearing health my top priority”

What our client have to say about us

“With these hearing aids, my whole life has changed. My daughters used to get frustrated with me not hearing them. Now, I can understand everything. I want to thank Hear & Now for what you did for me and my family.”

“What I like best is that when I place the aides in my ears, they are comfortable and after about ten minutes, I am unaware they are in my ears. I attribute the good fit to the fact that Don spent plenty of time whittling the models before sending the actual aids.”

“Thank you so much for taking such good care of my mom, helping her to hear again. It means so much to me.”

“Thank you for your patience and craftsmanship in adjusting my hearing aids.”
