Hurricane Harvey and Hearing Aids
It is heartbreaking to see the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Harvey as it swept through Houston during the last week of August, 2017. Many of our patients were unfortunately affected personally and lost homes, possessions, and precious memories. Many hearing aids were lost during the flooding, leaving evacuees with hearing loss more stressed during an already stressful time.
We are working hard at The Center for Audiology to help all our patients who lost or damaged hearing aids due to the flooding. Hearing aid manufacturers including Oticon, Widex, Phonak, Unitron, and Resound are working with us to help anyone who has lost their hearing aids due to the flood. For hearing aids still under warranty, manufacturers are waiving loss/damage deductibles. For hearing aids out-of-warranty, the manufacturers are providing refurbished/like new, or new hearing aids at no charge to those patients.
Please know that our entire staff is ready to help in whatever way we can to expedite these hearing aid replacements for you, and hopefully make your lives somewhat easier as you go through the re-building process. Please call The Center for Audiology at 713-255-0035 to report lost hearing aids, and we will take care of the rest for you and get you new hearing aids as quickly as we can!
