After nearly three years in business, Mike DeYarman, licensed hearing care practitioner, has expanded his Hear-Rite practice to two additional locations: a West Toledo office at 3606 N. Sylvania Ave. in Marketplace West and a South Toledo office at 5122Heatherdowns Blvd.in the Pillars Shopping Center.
“I had learned that the two Ohio Hearing Center locations were available and saw this as an opportunity to expand my practice. Romi Eidi of Eidi Properties is an old friend and worked with me on the new lease for the Pillars location and Don Wong, Marketplace West center owner, renegotiated the lease, making the transitions possible, ”he said. DeYarman opened his first office at 6600W. Sylvania Ave. in Saxon Square in the fall of 2012.
Licensed hearing care practitioner Garrett Schupp has joined the Hear-Rite team and serves the two new offices, spending Monday and Wednesday at the South Toledo location and Tuesday and Thursday at the West Toledo location. “Garrett has been in the business for eight years. He is very knowledgeable and works extremely well with clients,” DeYarman reported. “He offers the same service, care and compassion that Hear-Rite has become known for. He is a great asset for us.”
In addition to the new locations, Hear-Rite Hearing Centers, which work with the NuEar/Starkey line of hearing instruments e, have expanded their offerings, including ReSound, Widex, Rexton, Phonak, Oticon and more.
DeYarman said hearing loss can be associated with the aging process but can also be attributed to medications, illnesses, working conditions, military noise and even exposure to loud music.
“Regardless of the cause, hearing loss plays such an important role in communication and quality of life but the problem can be dramatically improved like never before in many cases,” DeYarman offered.
“We offer a dozen different styles of hearing aids to suit individual tastes and needs. We have hearing aids from the nearly invisible Miniscopic IIC (Invisible In Canal), which is one of the newer innovations and fits deeply in the ear canal, to the RIC (Receiver In Canal), which is adjusted to accommodate different degrees of hearing loss,” DeYarman stated. “And, in many cases, we can replace speakers for clients as their hearing changes.”
DeYarman and Schupp use the latest technology to test hearing and the effectiveness of hearing aids. “We use a variety of methods to verify the performance of the patient’s hearing instruments,”DeYarman said.
Free hearing examinations are offered by appointment and repair service is available for all brands of hearing aids. “There is no charge if I can do the repairs in my office, ”he promised.
DeYarman said he knew he always wanted to open his business in Sylvania and chose Saxon Square to lease space. “This is an ideal location for my business. Saxon Square is a familiar name and a recognizable location. It is also very convenient as my clients can park in front and walk right in to my office. We are also centrally located and close to the Sylvania Senior Center, the JCC-YMCA, Rite Aid and Cherry Vision, which should be helpful,”DeYarman reported.
Hear-Rite in Saxon Square is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. and has extended evening hours till 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays by appointment. The West Toledo location is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. The South Toledo location is open Monday and Wednesday at 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Evening and weekend appointments are available at the new locations by appointment,”DeYarman said. “We pride ourselves in meeting and exceeding our patients’ nerds and expectations. Whether its taking the time to listen to and address their individual needs and concerns or arranging free home visits to service those that are not able to come to us. Going that extra mile is what it is all about and is what has allowed us to grow so quickly and help so many.”
