Hearing Aids 

The majority of people who wear hearing aids first sought help because they were tired of asking others to repeat themselves. Or, they found themselves avoiding noisy restaurants, having trouble in conversation, or continually turning up the volume on the television.

A hearing aid is an electronic device that is worn in or behind the ear that amplifies and modulates sound. These devices have a microphone to receive sound. Additionally, they have an amplifier to increase the power of the sound signals, and a receiver to project the sounds to the ear. Hearing aid technology has made impressive strides in the last few years. Manufacturers have developed hearing aids that are significantly smaller in size and are able to provide greater satisfaction in noisy social settings.

When it comes to selecting the best hearing aids, believe it or not, your most important decision is finding a caring professional. Advanced Hearing Group offers a wide variety of hearing aid styles and manufacturers representing the very best technology. We help you select the style and type of hearing aid that works best with your type of hearing loss and your lifestyle.

We proudly carry the following hearing aids:


Hearing aids differ in size and the degree to which they amplify sound. There are many styles of hearing aids. It is important to consult with your audiologist to ensure that your selection matches both your lifestyle and your degree of hearing loss. Not all hearing aids are appropriate for every level of loss.

Canal receiver technology (CRT)

Behind-the-ear (BTE)

  • This style includes a behind-the-ear (BTE) piece using a tube to attach it to a customized ear mold that fits securely into the ear.
  • Earmolds can vary in size, material and color depending on hearing loss and patient preference.
  • Because they are larger, BTEs can accommodate bigger batteries for longer life and larger amplifiers for maximum amplification for people with a more severe hearing loss.


Completely-in-the-canal (CIC)

Happy Patients:

We want to thank Dr. Johnson and the staff at the South Scottsdale office, for their prompt service, when I had a problem, with one of my hearing aids. They saw me within an hour of my call to their office and resolved the problem, in a few minutes. We appreciate a business that is so helpful and caring.

As a person who was just diagnosed with tinnitus and some hearing loss, I decided to see Dr. Gary Johnson and discuss if hearing aids would be beneficial to me. Dr. Johnson gave me a thorough examination and evaluation and recommended hearing aids for me to help with the hearing loss and help quiet the tinnitus. I have been wearing my new hearing aids for about 2 months now and I am so happy with them. Dr. Johnson did a wonderful job evaluating what would work for me. He is very pleasant, listens to the needs of the patient, answers all questions and makes you feel very comfortable. I have been helped with the hearing aids for both my tinnitus and hearing loss. Don’t hesitate to go see Dr. Johnson if you are in need of someone who can help with your tinnitus and hearing problems. He is the best in the business.

I had a hearing aid quit on me. I went into the Mesa location and was greeted by a pleasant young lady and was promptly helped to get my hearing aid working again. And there was no charge !! Great service and pleasant staff. What a great experience!!

Will health insurance cover my hearing aids? What about ear wax removal?

Insurance covers many hearing & audiology services

Health insurance companies cover a variety of hearing aids. Since there are often specific requirements, and/or limitations on what or how much is covered, it is important to thoroughly understand what your health plan offers. It is our goal to find the type of hearing aid that is most suitable for your hearing loss. We will also help you understand your treatment options as they relate to your health insurance coverage.

Most insurance typically covers the cost of earwax removal services, with the patient paying only their standard policy deductible. However, the cost of earwax removal is not as expensive as you might think – without going through insurance, the cost of a standard earwax removal is $95.00 for either one ear or two.

We proudly contract with the insurance companies listed below. Our list is constantly growing, so check back often to see if your company is included. Alternatively, you can call us for assistance with your plan’s coverage, or to see if we contract with your insurance.
