Audiologist Marsha Johnson is inviting anyone concerned about hearing acuity to take Danish-made aids out for a cup of coffee on November 21.
Johnson, a Hollywood neighborhood resident since 1978, is offering a complimentary hearing screening and, for those eligible, a fitting with Widex Hearing Aids in her clinic at 825 N.E. 20th Ave., Suite 230.
She will give those trying out the aids a coupon to Freissan, the nearby German bakery, for coffee and a treat. Later, they can return to the clinic for evaluation and feedback.
This is an opportunity to “test drive” a set of hearing aids, she said, that offer many features to assist wearers to hear other people’s speech, enjoy music and help stimulate the central auditory system to reduce debilitating conditions.
Those interested in the offer may make an appointment for November 21 with office manager Jenny Pierce at (503) 234-1221.
Pricing levels for hearing aids vary, Johnson said. In Oregon, consumers have a 30-day free trial period without obligation to purchase.
