I knew from a young age that I had a hearing loss, but it was my three year struggle with intense tinnitus that brought me to Albrecht Audiology. As a result of hearing aids and the expert advice from Dr. Bethaney Tessitore, my quality of life improved substantially For the first time in years, I am able to get a full night’s sleep without the piercing ringing in my ears, I can now hear discussions without straining myself and social activities are more enjoyable. As a result, I feel well rested, less frustrated and calm. As an added bonus, I adjusted to wearing hearing aids faster than wearing my glasses. They are comfortable and undetectable to my friends.
Thank you so much

People ask me, “How are the hearing aids?” I simply tell them, “They are great, I can hear.”
I thought that having hearing aids might be annoying, and on the first day I wore them I mentioned to a friend that they may take some getting used to. My friend mentioned that both of us wear glasses and we got used to them. That changed my attitude and I figured wearing hearing aids would become second nature — they have, I hardly notice them.
Wearing the hearing aids allows me to hear conversations more clearly and sounds more distinctly. It’s a pleasure to be able to hear exactly what my 21-year-old daughter is saying. Even the little things are noticeable: I recently heard the fizz as I poured a soda. I haven’t heard that in years.
Dorothy's new hearing aids and earmolds have made significant improvements in her hearing and being able to keep them in her ears. The molds fit great, and she wears them daily without discomfort, not to mention her hearing has improved. Also, the new molds you had made for my hearing aids are doing wonderfully — no discomfort and not falling out of my ears. We both thank you very much for your thorough and dedicated effort to ensure we are hearing properly
Finally, hearing aids that stay in, don’t hurt, are really comfortable — and I can hear (not everything, but so much better)! You made my Christmas!

I chose Albrecht Audiology last year for my hearing needs after an exhaustive search for hearing evaluation and hearing aid services in Hanover, Gettysburg, and State College, PA. I personally did research about and met with several hearing aid providers, including independent audiologists and Miracle Ear representatives.
A rubric of criteria that included such items as knowledgeability, service, price ranges and selections, patient interactions, and location was devised and utilized. On every measure, Albrecht Audiology came out on the top of my list. Thus, I went to Dr. Albrecht for evaluation.
I was not disappointed. In addition to a wide range of prices and selections in hearing aids, it was her ability to relate to me as a patient/client and to collaborate with me and take all of my concerns into consideration that convinced me she was the right person to help alleviate my hearing problems. Her professional knowledge is apparent and her caring patience only enhances such knowledge. Her office is well-managed and everyone there has treated me with kindness and respect, following the lead, I am sure, of Dr. Albrecht.
Thus, it is with great pleasure and without reservation that I sincerely recommend Albrecht Audiology to anyone needing hearing aid evaluation and services.
The remote microphone system is miraculous! Soft-spoken people come through loud and clear. People wear so many gadgets these days — phones in their ears, for example — that this little transmitter and receiver won't draw attention. None of my friends have ever objected to wearing the mic.
Dr. Judith Albrecht began to ask questions about my problem. After that, she began to give me multiple tests. After the tests, she brought my wife in. She explained every part of the exam. She ordered a new aid. Later, I went back, and Judith did all the adjustments. I got my life back — I can hear things now.
The hearing aid that Bethaney prescribed for my high frequency hearing loss has had a profound impact on my day-to-day experience. I can relax and easily follow the conversations at work and with friends and family. My days are alive with sounds I had been missing for years — soft rain on the roof, the sizzle of a stir-fry, the songs of birds, and a whisper in my ear. I got my life back.

I resisted getting hearing aids for all the silly reasons most of us use to put off something we don't want to do. My experience with the highly competent and compassionate audiologists made me wish I'd done it years before. I don't miss hearing much anymore.

I want to thank you for all your time and patience in fitting my wife with new hearing aids. Her previous attempt to wear hearing aids was not very successful. I was fairly sure she would enjoy a change in her quality of life, but I didn't realize that my quality of life would also improve.

I appreciate your work and your attention to essential detail. I now understand how even these aids and their highly advanced technology could be FAR less effective if installed and programmed by someone just going through the motions, like not finding out what my individual tone tolerances are for loudness or not doing the in-ear test behind the aid to know what is actually going on in my ear canal. I see your dedication to understanding the importance of dotting the i's and crossing the t's to get the most out of these remarkable devices. Obviously, you have found your passion and take seriously the work of helping others to "see" the importance of understanding the auditory world. Bravo!

I tried my musicians' earplugs at a concert the other night for the first time (the first time I remembered them before walking out the door). They really are amazing. I'm never leaving them home again. Thanks!
