We are dedicated to improving the lives of the hearing impaired, one patient at a time. Everything we do is to help people with hearing loss enjoy the sounds, voices, people and conversations in their lives. We take great pride in helping people get back the gift of hearing—there is nothing more gratifying.

I have been wearing hearing aids for about 10 years now. I was first fitted by the Drummond Company in Fresno. It was about 6 years later that I learned that the Drummond Company had another office in north Fresno. Since that office was closer to my home I paid them a visit.

My first encounter with Nadine was very refreshing compared to the previous hearing instrument specialist. I got a, “Gee, I’m happy to see you” feeling from her. Not only her personality but her technical experience is top notch. I purchased new hearing aids and I have been very satisfied with their function and her professionalism in adjusting them to my needs.

I was thrilled to hear that Nadine has now opened her own office: Gateway 2 Hearing Inc. It is in the same location as before and is equipped with all the bells and whistles to provide the customer with excellent care.

Nadine Smith has been my personal hearing aid specialist for many years. She and her staff always take care of my needs- whether it’s a hearing exam, fitting me for new hearing aids, fixing broken ones or just replacing my hearing batteries! I would recommend her to anyone wanting a honest, professional, caring individual who will put you and your hearing first.

My husband and I purchased hearing aids from Drummond Co. with the understanding Drummond Co. would provide checkups several times a year for any adjustments or cleanings needed on our hearing aids. When I called for an appointment I got a disconnected number. I thought there must be a mistake. What a surprise to find out they were no longer in business and had not notified their customers.

I was so grateful to find out that Gateway 2 Hearing Inc. would continue the fine services Nadine and Connor had always provided for us.

Thank you Gateway 2 Hearing Inc. We really appreciate your service.

"Speech was so much better for me because I had a better understanding with these hearing aids and I have worn hearing aids now for 6 years. I always had trouble with consonants, like c's and t's if I was listening to a show like Wheel of Fortune, but now I can understand those so that is a huge plus for me."

"Finally having the volume on the TV normal for my wife is pretty cool. And to stream the TV sound wirelessly, without having a cord hanging over me, feels very free and natural for me."

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful it has been since getting this new hearing aid and remote microphone that I can wear. My husband can now hear me clearly when we’re in the car, outside, in another room, in the garage, or from a distance. It’s totally amazing! I’ve always had to drive in the past because he can only hear out of his left ear. Now he can drive and be safe because he doesn’t have to look at me to read my lips. While I’m wearing the remote microphone or when we use it in small groups he can actually participate in the conversation. It is truly amazing! The new hearing aid and remote device has opened a whole new world for my husband whom has been deaf in one ear for his entire life and has a profound hearing loss in the other. We are so grateful to you, Nadine, and your staff for opening up a new hearing world for my husband. Thank you so very much. You and the technology of today has been such a blessing to me and my husband. This has been something we have been praying about for many years. Thank you! Thank you!

I am so happy with my new hearing aids. This is my second pair of NuEar hearing aids and they are a wonderful improvement over my first pair that I purchased seven years ago. The newer technology is great –  I am able to hear things that I could not before, particularly with regard to music. Telephone conversations are much clearer and I don’t have to turn up the volume on the TV as much. They worked perfectly for me from the minute I first tried them. I have not needed to have them adjusted at all. Many thanks to Nadine and Connor!
