is the state’s largest family-owned, privately operated audiology company, so it’s only appropriate that the Lansing area would be the right location for their newest office. The Okemos branch, located in the Heritage Office Park on Okemos Road, is Hear Michigan’s fifteenth.
“I think Lansing is a great market,” says Hear Michigan owner John L. Ackerman. “It allows us to cover a good portion of Michigan.”
According to Ackerman, the success of Hear Michigan has been rooted in the company’s commitment to serving clients from every income level.
“In the hearing impaired world, sometimes patients will go to [other audiologist] and are quoted from $3,000 to $5,000 for a hearing aid,” says Ackerman. “When you can’t afford that, you never return.”
To facilitate the needs of those who can’t afford a brand new hearing aid, Hear Michigan offers demo and used models, so every patient can hear better.
The 1,500 square foot office employs 15 workers, which is a combination of existing employees from other branches and three new positions. The Okemos Hear Michigan office opened in 2011.
