Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
Dr. Ronna Fisher, Au.D., FAAA established Hearing Health Center in 1984 in honor of her father, whom she never had a chance to help. "My dad died at 53 years old, while I was still in graduate school. Because I couldn't change his life, I've dedicated mine to making sure my patients don't miss the important moments and voices in their lives." "My dad started having trouble with his hearing in his thirties as a result of rheumatic fever. As his hearing got worse, my parents stopped doing a lot of things and going to places they once enjoyed. They quit going to movies and plays because he couldn't understand most of what was said. Restaurants were torture – he missed the punch line of jokes and couldn't participate in most of the conversations. Places that had background noise or lots of people were always sources of embarrassment and humiliation. My dad's inability to hear clearly didn't just affect him. If affected everyone around him. My mother would accuse him of not listening and not paying attention to her. His colleagues thought he was "stuck up" when he didn't acknowledge their greetings. Clients were disgruntled when he misheard what they said. His children, including me, were impatient and angry at having to repeat everything all the time. The most common phrases around our house were 'never mind,' 'forget it,' and 'it's not important.' Well, it was important. My dad missed so much of my life – and it didn't have to be that way." Ronna received her doctoral degree in Audiology from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology, has earned the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association, and is an active member of the Academy of Dispensing Audiologists, American Tinnitus Association, and the Illinois Academy of Audiology.
