The people at the Bella Vista Hearing Center combine genuine skill and competency in assessing and addressing hearing issues, with an extraordinarily friendly and client-centered approach. For most of us, hearing aids are a very costly decision that cannot be made lightly. Even less do we want to make it under some pressure in places when selling products is more important than serving people. My experience with Bella Vista demonstrates a business really can put customers and customer care first. From offering a wide and candid assessment of options that might be available, to providing those interested with accurate assessments of their hearing-related challenges, to the certainty that we are meeting with people who really do care – this is just a great experience. This is not the nearest place advertizing hearing aids (I live north of Joplin), but there is no doubt the extra time and cost of driving to Bella Vista is more than worth it.

I found Molly in 2006 and she fitted me with a pair of hearing aids and it was kind of love at fires sight, then five years ago I purchased my second set and recently my third set and for the last eleven years her and her staff have bent over backwards to service me and keep my hearing aids in tip top condition. The Blue Tooth device that I have had for the last five years and a new one with my recent purchase is the most wonderful thing for listening to the TV. Wonderful people!

This place is absolutely amazing full of kind-hearted people that will do anything and everything to help you out and the young lady who works at the front desk and is the face of the company is absolutely amazing I would recommend this place to all of my family and friends.

Mother stumbled upon this resource and we are grateful she did. Beth Muller, Au.D, was attentive, intuitive, searching and inquisitive, until she wore away the layers of denial, embarrassment, and compensation for my mother’s hearing loss. Next week we go back to happily invest $6K+ for the set. Mother almost choked at the cost thinking someone had purchased aides at $1700, not understanding the price of quality and innovation. State of the Art hearing aides are worth EVERY penny. Stay tuned for the revelation…I can hardly wait myself, to see her precious eyes light up and see that wonderful smile.

Well all i can say is wow! I’v bin without hearing aids for some time now when i came across some new aids for sale that i could afford but when i went to a local hearing center to have them programmed for my hearing they wanted to charge almost $500 then i called some other’s places and got the same thing i don’t mind paying for services but come on really! so i looked online and saw the add for Blue wave hearing centers gave them a call and the said no charge for reprogramming and no charge for the test. I’m thinking no way got an appointment got tested and programmed $0.0 they did a great job very professional and friendly. i did purchase some custom ear molds. they have got a new customer for sure.

I bought a pair of hearing aids from Blue Wave Hearing Centers 10 years ago and upgraded again in 2013. Everyone, from the front office to the audiologists, makes me feel welcome each time I step in the door. I love my hearing aids, the free hearing tests, cleanings, and adjustments for life! I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hearing aids!

Hearing Test Drive
hearing aid test drive

In most hearing healthcare clinics, you will be given an opportunity to try a hearing aid that the provider recommends. Most clinics will fine-tune the aids to your unique hearing prescription and will allow you to also test how they sound in your doctor’s office. At the end of the appointment, they will ask you how you feel about your hearing aids and if you would like to purchase them.

At Blue Wave Hearing Centers, we don’t believe that is enough. We understand that choosing hearing aids can be a big decision, and we don’t believe it is a decision that should be made in the constraints of an audiologist’s office or in just a single visit.

This is why we developed the Hearing Aid Test Drive™. With our unique process, you will be able to leave the clinic with hearing aids and without an obligation to purchase or even a deposit. We want you to have an opportunity to learn and “test drive” your hearing aids in the real world, in your real life. We understand that your hearing aids will feel and sound different at church, at a restaurant, and at your daughter’s house - and you deserve an opportunity to test them in these settings. We also encourage you to try many different types and styles to find the one that works best for your unique brain and needs.
