"Life Changer

Austin Hearing Services changed my life! I have severe hearing loss, 80% in my left ear and 40% in my right. I had hearing aids, but they were not doing the job. A friend recommended Margaret Hutchinson, so I made an appointment. From the first visit I knew this experience would be different. Margaret worked with me many hours to tweak my hearing aids so I was receiving the best possible outcome. She also gave me several computer programs to enhance my listening intuitiveness and other aspects of better listening skills. In addition she explained some "life skills" of how to deal with hearing loss in social situations. She even included my wife, since (now we are both retired) she is the person I communicate with the most. I was extremely pleased with every aspect of my experience with my new hearing aids and the service, care and concern shown to me by Margaret Hutchison at Austin Hearing Services."

"Thank you for the opportunity to express my experience with Austin Hearing Services and Margaret.

I realized that I was unable to hear what people where saying and asked them to repeat what they were saying, this was very frustrating. Margaret provided me with all the information I needed to make the right choice of hearing aids. As a result I am able to hear what people are saying at the office and home, this has really made my life more enjoyable. Thank you Margaret for improving my life. Margaret and her staff at Austin Hearing Services are always friendly, helpful and professional, I am so glad I found Austin Hearing Services."

"My husband and I both needed hearing devices and were so fortunate to learn about Dr. Margaret Hutchison. Our experience with her was very positive. She is so kind, courteous, warm, caring and competent that you feel very at ease with the entire process. Her training and professionalism are evident from the first moment and leave you feeling that you've had the best service you could possibly have. We often refer family and friends to Austin Hearing and will continue to do so."
- Jodie B. Austin, TX


"The best decision I ever made!
Offered excellent service in identifying my hearing needs and fit me with the hearing aids that has made a tremendous difference in my life and that of my family. Thank you Austin Hearing Services."

- R.H. Austin, TX

 

"With great confidence I recommend my friends see Dr. Hutchison of Austin Hearing when they need hearing help because I know they will be pleased with the result. Over the past years I have purchased two sets of hearing aids from her, each of which was the state of the art at the time. The second set greatly outperformed and was more comfortable to wear than the one fitted years before because technology keeps improving. In each case, with her knowledge, patients and integrity she fitted me with the make and model best providing the help I needed and at a very competitive price. Her after sales service really got my attention by patiently tweaking the instruments to best fit my requirements as I learned to adapt to them. With that track record I heartily recommend her to my hard-of-hearing friends.

I can think of no purchase where the individual is more at the mercy of the professional than in the selection of a hearing aid. Most of us have no idea what our hearing loss is, what can be achieved, or what is available. A dedicated and knowledgeable audiologist is necessary to select the make and model that best meets the need and provide continuing support."

- Bruce Vernier, Sun City, Texas

"I have worn hearing aids since 1991 and lived in California until 2005 when I retired to the Austin area. 

I needed to find an Audiologist here, so began a search via the Internet, calling locally, and looking in the newspaper.  After checking around, I ended up calling Dr. Margaret for an appointment.  I immediately found her to be everything I was looking for.  She is a Doctor of Audiology, and I find her very competent, and pleasant to deal with.  She asks the right questions, in my view, to understand my hearing loss, and what I want a hearing aid to do. 

I was particularly impressed with the fact that when I needed to upgrade my hearing aids to the newest technology, she didn't "sell" me new instruments, but showed me the wide range of aids she has available, and found the best match for my hearing loss.  I was able to "demo" a number of choices, and decide on the right ones from own  "in the ears" use.

I highly recommend Dr. Hutchison."

- Donald L. Schliesser, Cedar Park, TX

"Thank you all for helping me with my hearing. Your kind and gentle approach has helped me transition into a new chapter of my life. I'm looking forward to hearing every bird in the trees and every note in the symphony thanks to you.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!"

- Emma Sue Smallwood

"Wonderful experience! I am very grateful to Dr. Hutchison for working so hard with me in order to find the right solution for my hearing problem. She is very knowledgeable and professional, and has the patience to listen and to look for the best match for the specific hearing loss. She has the skills needed to successfully apply the latest, most sophisticated technology to each individual hearing problem. I highly recommend her!"

"Realizing that you need hearing aids and wondering where to start can be a daunting challenge. I am so glad we found Austin Hearing Services. Margaret made us feel so comfortable the very first time my husband and I visited her office. She was very professional and competent, did not rush our appointment, and answered all of our questions. I was able to try the hearing aids out for a while to test them and come back for adjustments before making a purchase. I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Margaret Hutchison to others."

"After trying a couple of audiologist at the Othoryno office without much attention (they were late, rescheduled, always in hurry), I decided to try thanks to an online review. I am so happy I did it. She is an excellent professional, takes great care of you, available when you need, explains every detail -and I had many questions and fits to try-, and introduces you to this new world where you hear sounds again. And the price was quite good too. If you need an audiologist, Austin Hearing Services is your destination."

"I am more than completely satisfied with the support and service that I receive from Margaret. When I had an issue with a hearing aid that I had before I moved to TX she called the company herself and stayed on the line with them until resolution. When testing new hearing aids I was allowed a loaner for a week to test for 'real life' situations which is extremely important when you are hard of hearing. I never felt rushed when with her and will go back for another hearing aid when the time comes."

"Margaret is highly competent; she is focused on providing the type of hearing instrument that best serves the patient/client's needs. I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone with a hearing impairment."

"Very professional and she makes you feel so comfortable. I highly recommend this office for anyone that is in need for an Audiologist."

"My experience was excellent from the moment I walked into the door to the time I left with a pair of hearing aids that opened a new world of communication that I didn't realize how much I had been missing. My work has improved and I can enjoy having a dinner conversation with family and friends. I don't feel isolated anymore. My marriage is much happier since the Television isn't turned up so loud; and, my wife doesn't have to repeat things. Dr. Hutchison goes beyond just dispensing a hearing aid. She worked with me to find my needs and lifestyle to match my hearing loss with the appropriate pair of hearing aids that fit my situation and budget."

"Interesting previous review...several things did not make sense, though. Ear drums seal off the middle ear from the outside world--it is difficult for things to "leak past it" unless there is a hole in the ear drum. Removing hardened ear wax with a tool can often cause damage to the skin in the ear canal, and so it is often better to dissolve the ear wax before trying to remove it. The "Angie's List" reviews for Austin Hearing Services are great, as are the Google ones. Is the previous review from a competing practice, as it is quite different than any of the other posts?"

"We can speak very highly of Dr. Hutchinson. She is calm and professional, yet real and sincere and down to earth. She inspires confidence. She never makes you feel rushed. If she isn't sure about something, she will say so and immediately consult while you are still there. She saw us the same day with a problem even though we had just moved here and never had seen her before, nor had we bought my husband's hearing aid from her. Again, we can't imagine seeing anyone else."

"Dr. Margaret Hutchinson has been providing my hearing aid service since 2007. She is very kind and caring and patiently listens to my concerns. She made sure I understood what each type of aid provided to determine the most suitable aid for my hearing loss with a look toward future adjustments as well. Also, she doesn't assume you know something that you might not have learned about hearing loss and how your aids work. Her customer service after the purchase is exceptional. She also has a great sense of humor!"

"Hearing impaired since birth, and now in my fifties, I always hated almost everything about hearing aids... and buying them was at the top of the list... well my experience at Austin Hearing changed all that. Dr. Hutchison worked within my limited budget and found a solution that was far superior to any of the "big box" or franchise offerings...I can't say enough about Margaret.... she cares a great deal about her work, providing the right solution for each patient. I no longer dread going to the Audiologist."

"Dr. Hutchinson has been a true "miracle worker" for my father, who has profound hearing loss and also dementia. He had hearing aids but really didn't seem to help him that much. He was so "checked out" and disconnected from everyone and everything that we assumed that he was deteriorating mainly from the dementia. We took him to Dr. Hutchinson, who was able to do an EXTREMELY thorough exam and audiology testing for him and fitted him with new hearing aids. They were expensive, like ALL good hearing aids are, but the results were nothing short of MIRACULOUS! My dad can hear now as well as I can... It is as though we re-wound his life back 3 years! He is telling stories, watching movies (still use close captioning to help out), visiting with others (instead of just staring off). My mom now has a partner and friend back to talk and share things with. (a forgetful friend ..but a real live happy man and not the sad shell that his terrible deafness had left him) We just didn't realize how much of his diminished state was due to hearing loss. Seeing his audiogram was shocking - we realized that he was missing everything that went on around him! Yes his short term memory is still poor, but he is smiling and laughing and enjoying the grandchildren and telling stories and teasing them... and being teased! All because of Dr. Hutchinson's thorough evaluation and selection of the hearing devices that would work best for him. 5 stars is NOT ENOUGH to thank her for her attentiveness and thoroughness with my father's care. She explains everything, you don't feel rushed, her follow up is great and the hearing aids did not only what we hoped they would ... but a 100 x more than we even imagined!"

"I have had several audiograms with the military with very little feedback about my status: either 'go' or 'no-go'. I dreaded gong to a civilian audiologist, sitting in another booth listening to beeps and phantom beeps; it seemed like a set-up for a long boring afternoon. Instead, I met Dr. Margaret Hutchison. For the 1st time in decades, I was able to actually have a dialogue with my audiologist. I learned about how and why my wax buildup occurred; learned how to better care for my hearing; learned my hearing problem was not curable but did not have remain untreated. I was delighted with my visit, learned a lot, and trust her enough to make an appointment for my children. Don't be shy about talking to her - she will listen. Thank you Dr. Hutchison for your professionalism and assistance."

"Went to see Austin Hearing Service to have impressions made for custom in ear monitors. Being completely new to the process I wasn't quite sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by how helpful and knowledgeable Dr. Hutchinson was when it came to In ear monitors for musicians. The whole process takes about 30 minutes, most of which is going over the process with you in detail and making sure the molds are done correctly. I would highly recommend any of musician brethren looking to transition to custom molded in ear monitors to use Austin Hearing Services."
