About Us

The Leading Provider of Hearing Services in Hawai’i
Home » About
Hearing Doctors of Hawai’i is committed to helping people hear better. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality, professional, compassionate, and personal care to the patients and families we serve. Our practice is privately owned and operated, by our audiologist, Ann Narimasu-Phomenone, Au.D. Dr. Narimasu-Phomenone has fifteen years of experience diagnosing and treating hearing loss and tinnitus in both children and adults.

We understand that hearing issues impact all functions of daily life. Hearing loss affects one’s ability to communicate with friends, family, and those around us. When left untreated, hearing loss can have a psychological impact and lead to cognitive decline. Hearing loss has been linked to health issues such as dementia, depression, diabetes, heart disease and more.

Our team works closely with patients to evaluate hearing loss and recommend hearing aids or assistive devices that can improve hearing and quality of life. We are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment options available to ensure you can hear the world around you, and once again, actively communicate with the world around you.
