Our Mission

It is the mission of Allegany Hearing & Balance Center to provide professional, expert, and state of the art hearing and vestibular services and education, in a trusting and caring environment, in order to ensure the best possible outcomes and quality of life for our patients.
 

About Us

Since 2003, Allegany Hearing & Balance has been serving and supporting the surrounding LaVale and Oakland, MD communities, caring for you with state-of-the-art hearing technology typically found only in large metropolitan areas.

Locally owned, independent, and community oriented, Allegany Hearing & Balance Center typically donates 10% of its profits to local and regional charities and volunteers with various charities and organizations, like the Children’s League and the Cleft Palate Team, Landon’s Library, and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, among others.

Allegany Hearing & Balance Center is trusted by regional physicians who come to us to treat themselves and their families. We understand that it should be routine to check your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels, and that you should also check your hearing routinely.

  • We live on the Eastern Shore and were getting very poor service. We changed to Allegany Hearing and have been very happy with their service. They work us in on short notice and take good care of my hearing aids.

  • The staff were kind and helpful. It was a pleasant experience–the way they tested my ears and explained what would be best for me. They were willing to work within my budget on a payment plan. My hearing aids helped me to again have conversations and to go to church. It’s so wonderful to hear again!

  • Jana Brown and staff truly understand the needs of their patients. They take their time and personally get to know each person that enters their clinic. They make sure that you are satisfied with treatments and referrals to other doctors that can help you with your disabilities. I don’t think I would have gotten through my hearing and balance problems without Jana and her staff. Me and my family are so grateful they helped me.

    Andy Dolly

  • I don’t really have a funny story to tell—just a story with a happy ending. After years of not being able to hear, pretending that I could, and missing more and more that was going on around me, I can hear now. I appreciate the patience, care, and skill of Dr. Erin Reed as she helped me become used to a louder, but much more interesting world and the friendliness and competence of the staff at Allegany Hearing and Balance. Thank you.

    H.S.

  • A friend told me about Allegany Hearing & Balance and how professional and comfortable the staff makes you feel. I love how my aids fit, and now I can clearly hear. I tell all my friends. There are many styles and affordable prices to choose from. You have three months to make your final decision about your purchase, but it took me only one day, and I knew my hearing aids were for me!
