Welcome:

It is truly an honor for me to lead a Hearing Center that envisions providing premium hearing health services to its patients. I understand that if you are viewing our website and planning to visit our center, you know someone who is experiencing the limitations of not being able to communicate properly at work, social or family events. When hearing quality is reduced, one’s daily life is harder and more complex than it needs to be. I’m glad you have decided to act. Untreated hearing loss has been linked to changes in the brain tissue, depression, isolation, and in recent studies, to dementia.

On the other hand, good hearing keeps you involved in life and able to participate in social and work activities. To hear better again you need professional expertise and the latest technology.  I hope that if you already tried hearing aids and were not satisfied you will give hearing technology a second chance. Remember that technology on its own does not work; you need professional expertise to fit you properly and follow up with you on your hearing health. If properly selected and fitted, hearing aids do make a difference. They make life a lot easier!

Welcome:

I am so proud to partner with Dr. Ullauri. She is one of the most intelligent, caring and kind individuals I know. Her education level, experience and patient care are top-notch. She truly does want the best for her patients, and puts forth the maximum effort for each one. If you or your family member needs assistance with hearing care, rest assured, you are in good hands.We are excited about our new center. We plan to offer you the latest and best equipment, technology and a hearing aid verification not offered in all centers. We are easily accessible, Dr. Ulluari is bilingual, and you will love our new comfortable offices. Best of all, we offer great prices that compete with internet options and chains, while offering the best hearing aid technology available. Hearing tests are painless. The solutions are life-changing. If you or someone you know is putting off testing, now is a perfect time to come and visit.

Many people who I’ve told about Chicago Hearing Care have said, “I’ll be in soon. My hearing is not what I want it to be.” You might find you need a hearing health check too, or one for your teen, parents or your partner. Good hearing keeps our brains healthy, helps us function better at work and in our relationships and allows us to continue to travel, eat out and go to those concerts we’ve always enjoyed. The great news is that recent advances in hearing care make all of this possible. With the right assistance, you will experience the joy of better hearing in no time.

If there is anything I can do for you regarding appointments, billing, insurance or answering any questions you have, please feel free to call, email or stop in. We know that you are busy and want to help accommodate your schedule, so let me know if the early and late hours we’ve set up work. We want your feedback. I look forward to meeting you.
