Why Should You Choose Active Ear?

We are a family-owned practice focused on providing our patients with the best hearing care in the Fox Valley. When you schedule an appointment with Active Ear, your hearing health becomes our top priority. We do our best to get you in as soon as possible and to treat you with respect.

We make it easy for you to confidently achieve your hearing goals. Hearing aids are just a part of the solution for hearing loss. Our expert advice comes from years of experience working in an audiology practice and ENT clinic, combined with superior patient care, proper fittings, and aftercare that makes all the difference.

At Active Ear, we will help you get used to hearing again gradually, and in different environments. We won’t rush you out the door. You are an individual, and you’re hearing is important on so many levels. We are here for you.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

When you come to Active Ear you will immediately notice how friendly and welcoming our office is. We pride ourselves on providing our patients with a family oriented, hometown feeling. Better hearing is as easy as 1 2 3.

  • Check Your Hearing: This is the first step. A hearing exam is needed to see if you have a hearing loss and the type of loss you have. We will test your hearing for free and discuss your results.

  • Find Your Solution: After your hearing loss is determined, we will discuss solutions to get you on the path to better hearing. The most important factor when deciding what will best help you is your lifestyle.

  • Reconnect: We help you get used to hearing aids, guiding you through the first weeks with them and providing you with follow-up care. Our goal is to get you back to hearing the people that are most important to you.

Proud Partner of HearStrong

HearStrong was founded in 2013 with the goal of inspiring a mass hearing healthcare awareness movement. An estimated 48 million Americans experience hearing loss, and 80% of these individuals let it go unaddressed. This could be due to barriers such as social stigmas, financial difficulties, lack of awareness and resources, and more. In response to this need, HearStrong began recognizing and sharing the stories of remarkable people with hearing loss in an effort to empower and inspire others to take control of their hearing health. The HearStrong Foundation recognizes outstanding adults and children with hearing loss and gives them a platform to empower and serve others in need of hearing care. Learn More!
