Introducing Our ‘Hear for the Holidays’ Winners

by | Jan 8, 2021 | News, Patient Resources

Hearing & Balance Doctors is excited to announce the winners of our annual Hear for the Holidays contest! Every year, we give away several sets of free hearing aids – along with all accompanying service – to deserving candidates.

Nominations are accepted all year long via our website (hearingdoctors.net), and winners are selected and fitted with hearing aids during the holiday season.

In 2020, we were excited to receive a record number of nominations. This made the selection of winners more difficult. Every nominee was deserving and nominations were often accompanied by heartfelt stories of the candidates.

Our Gift to You

This year, even those not selected for free hearing aids, will receive a coupon for $1,000 off a set of hearing aids to be used any time in the future.

By offering this, we hope to be able to help as many people as possible to hear better in the new year.

And now for the winners…

Our winners for 2020 include Judith Villegas of Cedar City, Michael Soprano of St. George, Joan Tait of Enterprise, and Kim Lister of Enoch.

Winners were fitted with new hearing aids the week before Christmas.

We spent much of one day helping to fit and orient our winners with their new devices. It was a touching and memorable event for everyone involved.

Our doctors and staff love participating in this annual tradition.  Helping people to hear better is rewarding every day. But being able to surprise deserving individuals with the gift of hearing is particularly rewarding.

Serving the Greater Community

Hearing & Balance Doctors is proud to be a part of the community in Southern Utah.

We are honored to be able to give back to the community that means so much to us. We are a locally-owned business staffed entirely by doctors of audiology.
