If you believe that you may be experiencing signs of a hearing loss or you’re concerned about a loved one’s hearing, then it can be a confusing time, especially with so much conflicting and confusing information on what you should do next and who you should trust.
That’s why, at Duncan Hearing Healthcare, our mission since we opened our doors in 2003 has been to help educate and support Massachusetts on healthy hearing.
It is why thousands of patients have turned to us as their hearing care experts, multiple local physicians continue to refer patients to us, and many local organizations trust us to care for their staff’s hearing.
With a team of 10 audiologists and hearing care professionals spread throughout three locations in Fall River, Hyannis, and Dartmouth, if you’re looking for hearing care experts that you can trust, then you’re in the right place.
“Being around a medical professional can be intimidating for someone with a hearing loss because you want to be able to hear and understand everything that is being said, but Dr. Duncan was patient, confident, and reassuring in the way she approached her work… The staff at Duncan Hearing Healthcare is also professional, friendly, and accommodating. I have rediscovered sounds that I thought were gone for good – birds, crickets, the wind… Certain sounds go away, and you don’t realize that they have. I highly recommend Dr. Nancy Duncan and the fabulous crew at Duncan Hearing Healthcare. They changed my life.”

How We Can Help
We often compare hearing loss to a broken tail light.
As although the driver often isn’t aware of it and they can comfortably continue to drive without fixing it, it’s the people around them that it causes frustration and challenges for.
With a recent national health survey reporting that 15% of the U.S. population report trouble hearing, hearing loss is much more common than most people realize.
If you’re concerned about your hearing or a loved one’s, the first step is to schedule a hearing assessment. They’re quick, non-invasive, and you’ll receive the results upon completion.
Hearing Aid Technology
For many years, there has been a stigma around prescription hearing aids that has prevented millions of people from making the right decision for their hearing health and lifestyle.
But over the past decade, we have watched that change as hearing aid technology has drastically progressed. The latest hearing aids are incredibly small and, in some cases, even completely invisible. Patients often tell us that their friends, family, or colleagues haven’t even noticed their hearing aids months after wearing them.
With rechargeability, connectivity to your smartphone, and the ability to stream phone calls, music, and your television directly to your hearing aids, the latest technology is enhancing your life and not just enhancing your hearing.
Patients have described it as a hissing, clicking, ringing, or buzzing – but if you hear an unexplained sound in one or both of your ears on a regular basis, then it may be a sign of tinnitus.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that nearly 15% of us experience some form of tinnitus, making it one of the most common hearing related challenges across North America.
If you’re concerned that you may be one of the 50 million people that have tinnitus, then we encourage you to have a tinnitus assessment. It’s quick, non-invasive, and our professionals will help you to minimize the discomfort it causes.
What Patients Say
It's nice to hear again
Someone recommended Duncan Hearing Healthcare to Allan. Impressively, he found that the clinic accepted his insurance plan, meaning that the investment needed for his treatment and care would be greatly reduced. His first contact with the team assured him that he’d made the right choice. “They were very, very nice, but also, the cost was sensible.”
Hearing aids make a huge difference
The new hearing aids made a huge difference. Not only did they let Sarah freely interact with others and pursue her career, but the array of features also improved her quality of life. “The ones I have now have Bluetooth,” says Sarah. “So phone and Zoom calls are much easier.”
I wasn’t ready for hearing aids
“I was looking through some literature, and Nancy was speaking to me, and all of a sudden it hit me that I could hear what she was saying, and I was not watching her face,” Marilyn says. “That was so overwhelming, I can’t tell you.” Since that moment, Marilyn has worn her hearing aids wherever she goes. “It’s a whole new world when you can’t hear and get hearing aids. It opens up so many things to you,” she says.
Jordan’s hearing aids help him to hear better, ‘especially in school’
I would tell anyone to just go and try it.
Make the call – you won’t regret it.
My new hearing aids have been a game changer. It is so important to be connected to others in conversation because if you don’t have that, you with become withdrawn and disconnected to loved ones and others. They are very helpful to living a connected life.
They were professional but in a nice way
The best way I can describe them is that they were very professional but in a very nice way,” he says. I didn’t know what type of hearing aid I was going to get involved with, and when I went to Duncan Hearing Healthcare, they were just very, very nice.” After a week of testing out different products with his doctor of audiology, Lance settled on a hearing aid that suited him. The features, in particular, met and exceeded his requirements.
