I was pleasantly surprised at how little hassle was involved in the leasing program. I was expecting to sign my life away, much like obtaining a car lease or loan. The monthly payments allow for a perfect balance of funds with my other life expenses.

Associates in Hearing Reviews

My family has been pleased with the services of this office for many years. My mother, then my sister with special needs, and now myself all have hearing aids. We wouldn’t trust our care to anyone else. Everyone in the office is so caring and accommodating. We highly recommend this practice

Dr. David Flynn is a very patient person, listens to my problems, and explains what he thinks is the solution. Being a technical person, sometimes I have a suggestion and he is often willing to explore that. I never feel rushed and I am happy with the results of the adjustments when I leave.

My mother-in-law was 86 when she finally agreed to go for a hearing test. For years we had been saying that she needed help. Fortunately, we found Patricia Reiff, who took pains to fit her with the best hearing aids for her age-related deafness. We were thrilled when we left Dr. Reiff and she could actually hear what I was saying from the back seat of the car. Her world opened up for her that day. Associates in hearing pursue the best possible outcome for each individual!

Costco Reviews

The Hearing Aids never worked right. They muted voices when trying to filter out background noise. The buttons failed on one and were sent back again.

Upon their return, I tried them for two days and they were horrendous. Going into a store they blocked our voices because they tried to block out the background noise. You only have volume controls and the software for the phone is useless. They are junk. I am trying to return them for something that will work but the insurance doesn't know how to do that. After reading reviews of this brand it is obvious they are low-end poor hearing aids that Costco should not be selling. Hopefully, this will be resolved because I cannot wear this junk.

I’m very sensitive to sounds, I need best noise reduction. I told them that. I’d go back for adjustments and got nowhere. It seems they want me to just accept what computer tells them.

She shushed me twice and went on to say how I have to just get used to it. I explained how I am wired with high pitches, tinning sounds, etc. (old audiologist in Elkhart understood my loss) after she was insulting my intelligence again, I got up and said I was out of there. She told me to not take her personally!! I had hoped something would have changed in the time since I’d seen her, but I was wrong. She is their “best” everyone says but they only want to adjust a couple times and get me out. Bottom line is I got what I paid for.


My father is 83 and he was visiting from abroad. I took him to the Costco shop on Glen Mills, PA to the hearing aids shop to learn about the products. After a few minutes a salesman came and told me that I had to make an appointment over the phone the following day. I made the appointment and went back to the shop at the agreed time to find out that they wrongly booked my appointment in the computer. They told me that there was nothing they could do and that I had to re-book another appointment. The woman at the desk did not care at all that they made us waste two hours of our time when it was their fault to schedule the appointment at the wrong time.

I went to another location in Mount Laurel, NJ and tried to get another appointment. They said that they were booked for the whole month. Overall, the customer experience was terrible. I will not do business with these people. I prefer to go to a professional and pay more for a good product and have a good experience. With such terrible customer service, if you have any problem with the hearing aids, you will spend more money in time and frustration. These people do not care about the customer.
