Best hearing aid provider in the metro area

Meet Michael

Michael’s father, Lee F. Schneller, started his first hearing clinic in Garden City, Kansas in 1971. At the tender age of six, Michael diagnosed his babysitter with a hearing loss and was instrumental in getting her fitted with hearing aids from his father. As a young child, Michael worked in his father’s clinic after school and on weekends, working on, repairing and cleaning hearing aids. As Michael grew older, he traveled with his father to hospitals and retirement communities in southwest Kansas, assisting him in anyway he could. From these experiences, he acquired the passion for helping others. This prompted him to focus his education on assisting people with hearing impairments. The foundation of hearing aid knowledge Michael acquired while working in  the state of Kansas helped pave the way so Michael could expand his studies in California, Minnesota and Florida. He finished his dissertation paper on the astigmatisms of hearing aids in 2001.

Michael is currently licensed in Kansas and Missouri and has been in private practice since 2002. He has done contract work for Beltone, Miracle-Ear and Accurate Hearing Solutions in Colorado. Michael dedicates himself to being up-to-date on all the latest hearing systems and cutting edge technologies. This, combined with his broad experience and knowledge of different manufacturers, allows him to make the best recommendations for his patients.

What our patients are saying…

I’ve been coming to see Mike for 6 years now and have not been disappointed that I chose to use him for my hearing aids. At the very beginning I tried three different hearing aids before we found the ones that worked the best for me. Mike has been very diligent with great quality care to ensure that I am very satisfied with my hearing. I highly recommend Mike to my friends and family.
