Hearing Aid Repair
Hearing devices are used about 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. With that amount of use, it’s important to keep them well maintained and functioning properly. At Uhring’s, we offer full hearing device cleanings and adjustments so that you are able to get the most out of your hearing investment.
If something does happen to your hearing devices, bring them in! We are able to repair all the major hearing device brands right in our office.
We are proud to be your exclusive local CQ Partners provider. Many standard hearing aid warranties only last 1-3 years depending on the model of hearing aid. The CQ Partners 4-Year Warranty covers any CQ Partners device for 4 full years regardless of the model. That’s 4 years of service, repairs, cleanings and adjustments at no additional cost to you.
