I just want to thank you for saving my hearing. I feel like I have my life back! My world was shrinking and now I feel more alive than ever. Plus it's so fun to come here to the office!
I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for what you have done for my son. He has been so happy hearing after such a long time being so impaired and missing so much. You, Tom, are a very kind, compassionate man and truly care about your patients. You truly have changed his life. Thank you so very much and God Bless You.

After several unsuccessful visits to other hearing aid suppliers, I took the advice of a friend and made an appointment with Countryside Hearing Aid Services. My friend guaranteed me that I'd be pleased with their personal service and their professional staff. She couldn't have been more right! Tom Mitchell and his staff at Countryside Hearing tested my hearing, recommended a solution, and fitted me with a device that solved my problem. Now, they service all my needs on a regular basis. I couldn't be happier with the services they provide. They are a definite 5 star facility!
Countryside Hearing is the best hearing aid place I've ever used. The hearing aid products are first rate, modern and well-priced. Their service is exceptional! The store is clean and bright, and the staff is friendly. From the first moment I walk in, Laurie and the counter staff are smiling and greeting me. And the smiles are genuine, not pasted on, not quickly fading. These are good people who are proud of their work, in the hospitable mid-western tradition. Tom is an expert hearing aid specialist and knows exactly what he's doing. He's also a man of depth and civility. For me, the whole experience is home-like and welcoming. I urge you to go and experience how these folks do business in a genuinely personal way.

I have to be honest. I have never heard anything positive about wearing hearing aids. Everyone I talked to felt that they overpaid for them and in the end, they never wore them because they could never hear and understand with them the way they wanted to. When I visited Countryside Hearing to have my hearing checked, I shared my experience and concerns with Tom Mitchell and his staff. The whole experience with Countryside Hearing has been extraordinary. Tom, Laurie, Rachel and Jill provide service (and products) that have redefined my whole way of thinking in regards to hearing aids. Once I was tested, and fit, with my new hearing aids, I cannot imagine living one day without them. I can hear and I can understand with clarity and nobody knows that I'm even wearing them. Tom and his staff have provided service and follow-up that is WAY beyond what I've ever heard of. Finally, I still don't know anyone, other than myself, who absolutely loves their hearing aids.Thank you Countryside Hearing! I cannot recommend you highly enough.
I can't recommend this place enough. The entire staff is kind, gracious and very helpful. Tom Mitchell knows his stuff, offers free hearing tests and competent, informed, no-pressure guidance on hearing aid devices ways of managing tinnitus. After a loud concert incident a few months ago that resulted in tinnitus in one ear, I went to an ENT on the recommendation of my primary doctor. Cost me over $500 (after they told me it would be no more than $300) and they didn't tell me anything more than Tom Mitchell did...in fact, much less. Countryside succeeded in every way my ENT failed: kind and gentle "ear-side" manner, no-pressure guidance on treatment options and plenty of literature and explanation on my condition. You can tell the difference between places where you're just a number, a chart or a paycheck and places that actually CARE about you as a patient and as a person. Countryside Hearing is definitely in the latter camp and that's why they will get my business (and my referrals) from now on. Go see Tom Mitchell and his staff first. You can thank me later.

My mother is 90 had her hearing aids broke that she purchased elsewhere. She needed them same day. We went to Countryside hearing and they fixed them right away. The price was so fair and they even gave her a new case. The staff was excellent and caring. When she needs new hearing aids we will be going to Countryside Hearing.Thank you for a wonderful visit!

As a new arrival to FL. and experienced hearing aid user, I needed to find a new provider locally. After discovering that Countryside Hearing Aid Services sells and services my preferred brand, (Oticon), as well as many others; I made an appointment to purchase a new pair of hearing aids. What I have discovered over the past year is this: Tom Mitchell is a seasoned professional with years of experience in his field. His knowledge of hearing loss, hearing aids and his extensive experience with all brands of hearing aids is unsurpassed. His staff is by far the most welcoming, friendly, and courteous in the Tampa Bay Area. I know this because I've visited plenty of them. My initial audio testing and subsequent fitting was an excellent experience. As a matter of course I was asked to return every week for several months to ensure that I was perfectly fitted and 100% happy with my hearing aids. All of these follow-ups and cleanings were free of charge, and will continue to be periodically for the life of the hearing aids. Plus, free batteries for the life of the hearing aids as well! My former provider was top notch, but Tom Mitchell and his fantastic staff stand head and shoulders above them all!

I want to thank Tom. I am deaf in one ear. Because of Tom this is the first time I've been able to hear. I got the cross overs he recommended. It opened up a whole new world for me. Can't live with out them!
This is the best money I have ever spent! It helps that I've tried the other kinds of hearing aids so I have a comparison. You get what you pay for! The bad thing is, you don't realize you have them in. I had to put a sign on my shower door that says "HEARING AIDS" so I remember to take them off. They are so easy to put on. Nobody can see them. They are so light and sound so normal that you don't know you have them on, except when you take them off!
I love my new hearing aids and I love you guys!

I'm hearing better now with my new ReSound hearing aids than I have in the last 10 years wearing two other brands. I can actually understand what people are saying, which I haven't been able to do before. I highly recommend Countryside Hearing!

Several months ago, after many discussions with my wife, I agreed to look into purchasing hearing aids. I knew that after getting a hearing test that it would not be my hearing at fault but instead, my wife's voice that didn't carry during conversations. I visited Costco, Audibel, Hear USA, Hear.com, and Countryside Hearing. After every visit and after every test, it became clear that it was not my wife's voice or the acoustics of a building during meetings or church sermons. It was in fact my hearing that was suffering and it became obvious I had to do something about it. After many discussions and research I chose to do business with Tom Mitchell at Countryside Hearing. Perhaps I could have saved money elsewhere and although I wanted the most for my money it was Tom who did just that. His staff is accommodating, cheerful and helpful. His approach is professional in every aspect from testing to service. He cares about my quality of life and follows up in every aspect from service to free hearing aid batteries. I am happy to recommend him to anybody who is having similar problems as I had.
My new hearing aids are wonderful! I cannot imagine living without them.

Countryside Hearing is absolutely fantastic! I've worn hearing aids for many years and I have never had the satisfaction and service that I do now. The staff is incredibly friendly and I love my office visits!

Back in December I bought a set of hearing aids up in New York State where I lived at the time. They were never right and the "hearing specialist" I bought them from couldn't seem to properly adjust them. Shortly after I moved to Florida and getting settled, I contacted the manufacturer & was put in touch with Countryside Hearing Aids. Smartest decision I ever made.
I called for an appointment & drove down. I felt welcome and comfortable right away. Tom inspected my aids & gave me the most comprehensive hearing test I ever had. We talked and, to my relief, was told all I needed was a proper tuning & adjustment. I fully expected to being sold a new pair. Not necessary, Tom said--just proper tuning. He did the cleaning & adjustments.
He did suggest that I return occasionally to have everything checked out. I was impressed with his openness & honesty & would not hesitate recommending him and his wonderful service.

I have an extreme hearing loss from a dive accident and subsequent ear infection. With 100 db hearing loss, I was told that no hearing aid could restore my hearing in that ear. Tom worked to restore my hearing in that ear and I am thrilled to have my hearing back. Tom and his staff are wonderful people and always upbeat, wanting to help. I am thrilled to have walked into Countryside Hearing and to have a good relationship with them. "What nice people"
I’ve been doing business with Countryside Hearing for years now. The latest owners (Tom and Laurie Mitchell) are incredibly proficient. It goes without saying that one's natural hearing would be best, but alas, age takes a toll and Countryside Hearing and the products they sell and service can't be beat! I know: I've had four other sets of aids from various vendors!
I want to personally thank Tom and his lovely wife Laurie for providing outstanding quality of care for my 89 year old mother who has been suffering with a 75% hearing loss for some years now. I am so grateful to have found them as they are a first class and very professional business at providing the utmost in quality of care. Tom has used his 30 plus years of expertise in the field of providing the highest quality of hearing thru the latest in technology. I am so very grateful to Tom and Laurie for their genuine care for people and to improve their quality of their patients’ lives through the highest quality of hearing that can be provided. They are very courteous, patient, kind and always willing to schedule you in for an appointment and to care for your hearing needs until satisfied. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and very hospitable with NO Pressure. However, the quality of hearing that Tom has provided my mother has increased the quality of her life and joy!
With sincere gratitude
I chose Countryside Hearing for my Mom, Marion Ames, because it was family owned/operated, because of the BBB A+ rating and for the years of service in the area. We stay as loyal customers not only because of the congenial atmosphere, but also because of the educational information that she received. Her particular hearing loss was explained to her (a new experience in spite of the fact that she has had hearing aids for a number of years). She did make an informed purchase, but under NO pressure whatsoever! Believe us when we state that if there is a problem that can't wait until the next scheduled appointment, you will be accommodated. "Problem" in our case is defined by new aids needing tweaking sooner and my personal favorite: We were in CA and the pressure from flying gave my Mom some problems which Tom troubleshot over the phone! Wow! My Mom also appreciates the no interest financing available and the life time free batteries! A definite win on our part.
I've never heard better than now with my hearing aids!
