For more than 75 years, the A.P. Mynders & Associates AUDIOLOGY/Hearing Aid Services
practice has been giving thousands of patients the gift of better hearing.
Our practice founders Anthony and Eugenia Mynders began to serve hearing - impaired Philadelphians in 1938, working with ear, nose, and throat doctors to provide State - of - the - Art testing and fitting services. The Mynders worked to bring greater attention to hearing loss solutions through their community and government agencies, as well as in their practice . A. P. “ Tony ” Mynders worked with several Philadelphia mayors to promote Better Hearing Month, a public awareness campaign, and initiated local and national credentialing projects in the field of Hearing Instrument Sciences. As President of the International Hearing Society (IHS), he pressed for and obtained National Board Certification for Hearing Aid Clinicians, and notably founded the Children' s Hearing Aid Bank, a charity for hearing - impaired children in need. Hearing care of the highest standard was their life - long commitment.
Their son, Joel Mynders, joined the practice in 1964 to continue the groundwork laid by A. P. and Eugenia. Joel attended Temple University' s Audiology Program. Mr. Mynders was named the one of the first Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist in the country among thousands of candidates. Joel has authored over 75 publications in clinical journals and academic text books, and his lectures and seminars on hearing aid care have been given locally and internationally - more than any Audiologist in Philadelphia.
Then and now, the goals of the practice are to provide state - of - the - art equipment for audiologic testing and hearing instruments, and to follow up with a great attention to detail during patient care. Early on, A.P. & Eugenia began the concept of “ Umbrella Care ”. By this proprietary service system, ALL our patients receive ONE YEAR of professional office visits when you acquire new hearing aids. This includes all office visits, follow - ups, 6 - month maintenance check - up, and a complete evaluation of your hearing aids at the end of 12 months.
Choosing a hearing aid provider is THE most critical part of getting your new hearing aids. Receiving good care depends upon a combination of your selection process, the options for solutions that your provider has for your case, and the relationship you establish with your clinician. We recommend that patients meet the clinician before they buy, observe the answering your questions.
