About Us


Countryside Hearing Aid Services has been serving the greater Clearwater area since 1979. We are the only Better Business Bureau Accredited A+ Rated hearing aid office in central and north Pinellas County. We have always been a family owned operation and our plans are to stay that way.

We offer comprehensive hearing testing, hearing aid service and repair along with digital hearing aid programming and troubleshooting. Our primary product lines include ReSound, Oticon and Widex.

The owners of Countryside Hearing Aid Services are Thomas R. and Laurie Lynn Mitchell. Tom and Laurie have been married since 1987 and work together daily. Our mutual goal is to provide the very best hearing aids and service while providing a very family friendly, fun environment in which to do business.

Incidentally, Tom has over three decades of hearing aid experience including several years in hearing aid manufacturing, product development and design. He has also spent several years traveling the United States as a trainer and consultant for both Hearing Aid Specialists and Audiologists.

Tom also competed in the sport of Strongman for several years (the guys who pull trucks, flip huge tires and lift big rocks) and served as the Florida State Chairman for North America Strongman for 10 years. In 2007 Tom won the North American Strongman Championships and the World Strongman Challenge in the Masters Heavyweight Division. Laurie also enjoys weight training along with cooking, photography and interior design.
