Read what some of our patients have to say about our staff and our office!

I have been doing business with Chris Bisel for almost 2 decades! He is so knowledgeable and sincere that I would never consider getting my hearing aids from anyone else. I know I can trust Chris and that is very important to me. He takes good care of his customers...

Monica McNamara: She helped me with hearing testing to understand the various levels of hearing. She has a tremendous knowledge in that field and a good sales person. I will recommend her to my other friends.

Incredible experience! This is a third generation owned business, and Chris Bisel does a great job. It’s not just hearing aids; they do custom ear plugs, hearing devices for those in television, noise canceling plugs, etc. Highly recommend for any hearing devices!

I was sad to learn that my hearing loss was more severe when I took a hearing test back in July of 2022. I began my research, being new to the Houston area I was drawn to Bisel because it was close to where i was living at the time....
