Hearing Aid Dispenser – Lic. H.A. 8503
If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Christa, you know she is enthusiastic about helping the hard of hearing. She consistently goes out of her way to help each individual. Christa performs comprehensive hearing aid evaluations, takes care to listen to each individual’s desires, lifestyle and budget, and provides her extensive knowledge in choosing the right hearing devices. She fits, adjusts and instructs patients on maintenance care for hearing devices as well, offering a unique experience for each patient.
My husband, Nick, has been getting his hearing aids from Upstate Hearing Instruments since 1996, and I bought my hearing aids there when it was determined that I needed them, too. Our most recent experience was with Christa Atwood. We asked for her help in setting up our RING doorbell system (which we had purchased elsewhere) so that it would work with Nick’s Oticon Opn hearing aids. Christa spent hours with us and she was unbelievably patient. She is really sharp, and her powers of deduction are incredible. Besides that, she is warm and friendly. It was truly a pleasure to be guided by her. Everyone who works at Upstate Hearing Instruments—from the the receptionist to the owner—is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They seem to be interested in us as people, not just as customers. Nick and I have had great service there, and we wholeheartedly recommend Upstate Hearing Instruments.
When I finally made the decision to do something about my hearing loss two different friends recommended Christa at Upstate. Rene set up my appointment and sent me some paperwork to complete before my visit. When I arrived, she made me feel right at home while I waited. During my initial meeting with Christa, she instantly put me at ease. She did a complete hearing exam and test and then we talked about options. Her suggestion was to try hearing aids to see what I thought, no pressure. Well, I fell in love with the ability to hear clearly and her! She is very accommodating, warm and friendly. Yes, I highly recommend the team of Christa and Rene at Upstate.

Hearing Loss Stories
My first experience of Upstate hearing Instruments were the immediate increase in hearing levels
There was multiple indicators that signified that I had a hearing loss, but I had a small hesitation to address this because of the stigma and concerns about resistance to sweating, exercising, batteries and convenience.
You will be very happy with your decision if you visit Upstate Hearing Instruments.
My advice to anybody that is considering visiting Upstate Hearing Instruments is that it’s the place to go
I was struggling to hear at work which was impacting my job. My first impressions of Upstate Hearing Instruments was how great Ken’s presentation was. As I’m practically deaf without my hearing aids, they have greatly impacted my life.
The staff is warm and friendly, and they served very good cookies and coffee
After I retired, I noticed the hearing in my left ear was not good. I got an aid for that ear. I lived in the Bay area and purchased the aid there. Upstate Hearing is a very pleasant place. The staff is warm and friendly, and they served very good cookies and coffee.
I thought everyone there was very professional, they answered all of my questions, and they were compassionate
I first realized that I might have a hearing loss when I was unable to hear normal conversations in a crowd. At first, I was concerned that I was too young for hearing aids and about the stigma of wearing hearing aid devices. During my first visit to Upstate Hearing, I thought everyone there was very professional, they answered all of my questions, and they were compassionate.
I found everyone at Upstate Hearing to be friendly, not pushy, and the demos were a plus
I first noticed that I had a hearing loss several years ago. Before coming to Upstate Hearing, I was concerned that I would not like them [hearing aids] and that I’d get possible feedback noise. I found everyone at Upstate Hearing to be friendly, not pushy, and the demos were a plus.
I thought the office was friendly and kind, and the technician was very accurate in describing my symptoms
I first realized that I might have a hearing loss when I was working and noticed that previously I could tell when my phone was ringing no matter where I was in the room, and then I couldn’t tell where the ringing was coming from. I noticed even when I was next to my phone that I couldn’t distinguish which phone was ringing.

Upstate Hearing has great staff at their office in Redding. They really helped me to ask questions. Also, our special specialist Joshua Fockler went through the product, how to use it, and made adjustments to the hearing aids. He explained how to use them and the maintenance of the equipment.
