My husband and I both got our hearing tested. Mine was fine and my husband had a very strange result confirmed by the audiologists here. Everyone was very nice and willing to make our visits comfortable and provide us with complete results and understanding of them.

Over the last 40 years I have worked for number of organizations. I have found HASA to be what many other organizations strive to be. They provide a nurturing environment for their employees which translates to high quality service for their clients.
HASA is a wonderful organization that provides professional, courteous and personal service to so many children in Baltimore. I know of no other organization in the area like it serving the needs of the deaf and hard of hearing.
