If you are not familiar with us, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about us.
In April, 1976, my father, Leo Scallan, started this practice. In 1989, I joined him full time. I have maintained this office to be an independent dispenser. This allows you to be fit with the best hearing aid for your hearing loss from many manufacturers not just one.
I really understand the trials and tribulations of having a hearing loss, since I am also hearing impaired. I know that most people need time to adjust to the noisy world we live in. A hearing device is not something you just put on and go. I, and my staff, will help you make the transition to hearing as easy and positive as possible. The emphasis is on service and rehabilitation.
Today our staff consist of me, Laurie Morrison, Audiologist; Teresa Landess, Hearing Instrument Specialist; and Jane Terito, office manager.
Since 1976, Scallan Hearing Aid & Audiology has served the hearing impaired. Please visit us to let us show you how we can best serve you or a family member.

If I have a hearing loss, what's next?
After a hearing loss is determined, we will then recommend the product we think best fits your hearing loss and lifestyle. Hearing aid styles vary from behind the ear (BTE), in the ear (ITE), in the canal (ITC) or completely in the canal (CIC). Your hearing loss dictates the style necessary to properly correct your hearing. In most cases, we can simulate what the hearing aid will sound like in your ears. Please be aware that no hearing aid can replace normal hearing.
How much does a hearing aid cost?
The cost varies according to the amount of hearing loss, style of hearing aid, and sophistication of the technology in the hearing aid. The range is from approximately $1,000.00 to $4,000.00 each. There are less expensive hearing aids available, but these have extreme limitations of fitting range and/or technology.
Does insurance pay for hearing aids?
Each policy is different. The only way to know for sure is to contact your insurance company to find out if hearing aids are a covered service. As of now, Medicare does not cover hearing aids. Medicaid only covers hearing aids for children.
Do you have a trial period?
Yes. We offer a 30-day trial on all of our hearing aids.
How do you choose which hearing aid to put on me?
We are a multi-line hearing aid dispenser. We handle several manufacturers' products. It has been our experience that no one manufacturer can fit all hearing losses. Each manufacturer has its own philosophy to correcting hearing loss. We use our expertise to match your hearing loss with the manufacturer best suited to fit you.
