August 24, 2017 - Beauport Hearing Care Gets International Recognition
Beauport Hearing was recently featured in the International Hearing Society’s quarterly magazine, The Hearing Professional.
The article cites plenty of specifics concerning Beauport Hearing’s different approach.  Hearing specialist and co-owner, Judi Hodge Bergeron said, “The most important difference is how we emphasize aural rehabilitation rather than hearing aids.”  She continued, “Many patients tell us they tried hearing aids more than once before. But no one was ever able to deliver the kind of hearing success they obtained from our clinic.”

The Hearing Professional keeps licensed members of the International Hearing Society (IHS) informed of innovations in hearing technology and improved patient services.
