Offering Convenient and Personalized Ongoing Hearing Care Focused Entirely on You
Professional Care at a Price You Can Afford
If you’re a hearing aid wearer, then you’ll know that being fitted with hearing aids is not the “finish line” but the “start line” to better hearing.
The support, care and help that you then receive over the following months and years is the difference between achieving better hearing for life and having a pair of hearing devices that spend more time in the drawer than in your ears.
My name is Manny Ocano and I help a small number of people throughout Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Capitola, Aptos, and Monterey to achieve better hearing by delivering uniquely convenient and personalized hearing care.
If you would prefer convenient and personalized hearing care that works around you, rather than you having to work around a provider’s busy schedule or hope that you land lucky the next time you visit your local big box store, then I’m here to help.
Hearing loss is not a sign that you’re broken. Instead, it is a sign that you have lived an experience-rich life that your ears have struggled to keep up with.
In the same way that driving a car fast will gradually erode the tires, the more that your ears experience, the more likely that you’ll need some assistance to continue to bring your differences to the world.
Hearing assessments are simple, quick, non-invasive, and allow you to get a clear understanding of any hearing challenges that you may be experiencing. Once done, you can then be in a much more educated position to understand your options.
If you have any concerns about your hearing or a loved one’s hearing, then I strongly encourage you to have a hearing assessment.
Although hearing technology is only part of the equation of achieving better hearing, it is the part that creates the most resistance and stops many people from moving forward.
That’s because many of us have a stigma toward hearing aids as we remember the large, clunky devices from yesteryear that our grandparents or parents once wore.
The good news is that the stigma has drastically changed over recent years, with new hearing technology now being small, discreet, and incredibly powerful. In fact, it’s likely that you have a friend, loved one, or colleague that is a hearing aid wearer and you have never even noticed.
As part of my “All Ears Club” – you qualify for discounted hearing technology, allowing you to be fitted with the latest and greatest technology for a significant savings.
Having worked in busy ENT environments with limited appointment times and a busy schedule for 15 years, I always thought that there was a better way.
I didn’t feel like I could give patients the time and attention they required, and I always thought the model of charging large fees upfront for bundled hearing technology and service was confusing.
That’s why I decided to launch my “All Ears Club.”
This allows you to receive “All-Inclusive” advanced hearing care with everything that they could possibly need in a highly convenient and personalized way.
From concierge-style appointments that work around your schedule to member-only discounts on new technology and accessories.
I know that some of my patients may require assistance with their current set of hearing devices but, understandably, would rather not have to leave the safety of their own home at the moment.
That’s why I have developed a Remote Hearing Aid Repairs Service, allowing me to travel to your home. Repairs can be carried out on all brands of hearing aids, simply click the link below and complete the form on the page and I can contact you to discuss your particular make and model.
This bespoke service allows me to test your hearing against your everyday environment while taking a look into your hearing aids to see what may be causing the problem.
One of the biggest challenges with our hearing is that measuring the small differences can be very difficult, especially if the small differences occur over time.
This is the main reason why many hearing devices can start to underperform, yet you may not notice any distinguishable differences.
Yet if your devices continue to decline in performance, then your ears have to work harder and it results in your devices not achieving their objective.
This is why I have introduced a ‘Hearing Aid Tune-Up Service’, click the link for more information and to book a tune-up.
I have been a licensed hearing instrument specialist since 2005, have been board certified BC-HIS since 2014, and have worked in an ENT environment for 5+ years, having spent my early career in high tech at Hewlett-Packard, Cisco, and Nokia. I found that transitioning into the hearing aid field has allowed me to blend my passions for customer service, sound quality, and high technology in a way that has led me to define the Gold Standard of fitting and supporting my clients’ rehabilitation and success in wearing a hearing device.
Over my years in the hearing industry, I have been able to satisfy my naturally curious nature by taking roles in many aspects of the business: from distributing hearing aids at Costco, through private practices, several years at the Santa Cruz Ear, Nose, and Throat Clinic to working in a hearing aid start up, Eargo, as the director of clinical studies, where I was awarded a patent for my contribution to the design of a brand–new type of hearing aid.
I enjoy participating as a proctor for the State of California Licensing Board and have been both a member and director for the Hearing Healthcare Providers of California, getting involved with the legislation that helped to define the trial and warranty periods for a hearing aid sales in California (SB1326). I’m currently board certified in hearing instrument science and have successfully completed the “American Conference of Audioprosthology” through the International Hearing Society.
“He’s Kind And Knowledgeable, And He Really Takes His Time With You.” – Melissa’s Story
Melissa’s experience with Manny has been nothing but positive, and together they’ve witnessed hearing technology advance during the last two decades. Hearing technology has made a big difference to Melissa’s life and she would encourage anyone to visit Manny.
“My family, it drives them crazy that I can’t hear, so my family is particularly happy that I now can hear much better.”
She concludes, “If you’re a person where the people in your life, your family members, or the people you work with are complaining or noticing that you can’t hear well or you miss things, or you know you’re missing things, you deserve to get as best as you possibly can.”
How Manny Has Helped A Musician To Hear Better Than He’s Ever Heard Before
After visiting multiple professionals, one person stood out and that was Manny Ocano. The key thing that stood out in Rob’s words was, “He never settled for good, he was always looking to get me better results.”
This meant that when Rob learned that Manny had launched “Hear with Manny” to bring ultimate hearing care convenience as part of his competitive “All Ears Club” – Rob was eager to explore how he could further develop his professional relationship with Manny.
This resulted in Rob being fitted with the latest in hearing technology from global manufacturer ReSound, which Rob described as “game changing.”
