Rural Audiology Services, Inc. (RAS) is currently owned by Becky and Andy Franz. For over 30 years, the practice has been providing Waupaca and neighboring communities with comprehensive hearing care services. These services include hearing evaluations, hearing loss rehabilitation, education and counseling. Our goal is to improve the lives of people with hearing loss through better hearing and quality hearing care services.
Seeing patients in a rural community has too many advantages to mention! Patients are always friendly and open. They often know each other and are quick to refer a friend. Often times, receptionists have known patients their whole lives! Even the ride to work has advantages—showing off beautiful Central Wisconsin landscape. One can't help but feel blessed.
In order to meet your individual needs, we may refer you for medical treatment or recommend hearing aids or other assistive listening devices, if necessary. We dispense a wide range of hearing technology, including the latest models to suit most every hearing loss, hearing need, lifestyle and budget. Hearing loss prevention and hearing protection are key components of our care. We are often in regular communication with family members because we understand how hearing loss impacts more than just the patient. Family is encouraged to accompany patients to appointments.
We are trained to work with a variety of hearing aid styles from different manufacturers, and we regularly attend seminars and continuing education courses. This way, we stay up-to-date on the latest hearing technology and the best ways to serve our patients.
