Since LCS closed and Polo Gonzalez isn't available there, does anyone know of an audiologist practicing in the area?  Costco isn't a practical option for us at this point.

Chapala Med has someone come in two days a week.

Polo's numbers: cel. 045 331 511 4088. email: polgon62@yahoo.com

It might be good to give him a call. He might be glad to drive in if he had some appointments, to pick up repairs, and such.

Lexy.

Dr. Carlos Alonso Flores Valdovinos practices in Guadalajara and Ajijic as an authority on age related hearing loss and Oticon brand hearing aids. Unlike other countries, Mexican audiologists are required to obtain a Bachelor in Medicine degree in order to perform hearing diagnosis and rehabilitation.  

Dr. Flores is a Licensed Audiologist who received his Bachelor in Medicine from the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (UAG). He completed his four year Audiology medical residency at Luis Guillermo Ibarra Ibarra´s Hospital, and was licensed by the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). He has been affiliated with the Mexican Association and Mexican Council of Communication, Audiology, Otoneurology and Phoniatrics (AMCAOF- CoMCAOF) since 2017.

Just want to report Polo came out to my place, we did a complete hearing test in a quiet room, he brought me a set of the high power aids I need, set them right up on the spot, they are fantastic and the price was probably less than the cost NOB.  I have used him in the past for repairing my hearing aids and he has been great for that as well.

Very satisfied and I highly recommend Polo.  Thank you Lexy for the contact information.

Would you be willing to share the cost for the set of hearing aids?  Thanks.

These are your basic high powered aids that have the speaker on the end of the wire in the ear canal.  They have up to four programs, use #312 batteries.  No Bluetooth but they somehow automatically detect when you put a cell phone to your ear and change to phone program.  Other programs are TV and restaurant.  You can adjust the volume up or down.  They are Starkey brand and cost me 50,000 pesos the set of two including in home testing, programming and fitting.  I wanted simple and powerful and these filled the bill perfectly.  I have 70 percent hearingloss in the speech frequencies and now I can here even soft speakers well.  My previous set of Oticon didn't do nearly as well and they were $3300 at Costco 7 years ago.  The deal included 60 batteries which should last at least 6 months.
