Chicago Hearing Services is proud to sell and use premium batteries. You can always call our office and Miriam, our office manager, will be happy to place your order and ship the batteries to you or you can stop by and purchase them in person.
Premium batteries are important for several reasons. The quality control of the batteries is higher with premium batteries. This allows for a more consistent delivery of the signal without having to worry about an intermittent signal or the hearing aid not working. Premium batteries also work longer than store bought batteries.

I know I have slacked on writing on my blog for quite some time. There have been quite a few things that have occurred since I last wrote. One major personal thing is that on December 10, my fiance asked me to marry him and I said yes! It is truly a day I will never forget! A July 9 wedding is planned in North Dakota!
Another change occurred in my business life–on January 4, 2016, I became the owner of Chicago Hearing Services! It has been a very rewarding and a very good decision! If you haven’t been to our office, I encourage you to stop by and say hello! We always enjoy having visitors.
I promise to be more diligent about writing so that you, my readers, can stay informed. I am planning on some great topics, but if you as readers, have any suggestions, make sure to send them my way….I promise to address each and every one!
I was so honored to be a part of Dan’s journey. It is his story and countless others that makes me love my job that I do!
