We opened Ford Hearing Aid & Audiology in 1981 with a clear goal: to improve people’s lives through better hearing. Healthy hearing is an integral part of our lives, allowing us to connect with the people we care most about and partake in the activities we enjoy. Our patients are often surprised by how well modern hearing aids improve the sounds they can hear, and how incredibly small these devices have become.
Hearing aids are evolving at lightning speed and continue to address a growing number of hearing issues. At Ford Hearing Aid & Audiology we take advantage of what the latest improvements in hearing technology have to offer and design specialized hearing solutions to benefit all kinds of hearing concerns. With so many options available today, our patients rely on our expertise and 37 years of experience to help them select the best device for their unique situation. They also rely on our honest and sensitive care. There’s nothing we enjoy more than watching our patients’ faces as they regain the ability to enjoy the richness of crisp sounds again.
Our office provides a complete range of diagnostic hearing services as well as preventative options. Comprehensive hearing evaluations, hearing aid fittings and repair, custom ear plugs and protection, tinnitus management, and both rehabilitative and preventative counseling are just a few of the things we do on a regular basis. We measure our own success by the satisfaction of our patients. That’s why we focus on delivering effective results with compassion, education, and integrity every step of the way.
Our loyal patients know they’re in good hands at Ford Hearing Aid & Audiology. After one visit to our office, you’ll see why so many people trust us with their hearing health.

At one time Max worked with William Dumont, the founder of Miracle Ear and Oticon. Max really enjoyed his work and loved working with people. He spoke many times about working door to door and driving many miles to help people hear better.
