Michael MacDonald, Owner and Hearing Instrument Specialist

Michael MacDonald

Owner, Hearing Instrument Specialist

Michael was born in Guam USA but has lived in Hawaii, California, Greece, Spain, Florida, and Newfoundland Canada. While working for an advertising agency in San Diego, he transferred to New Mexico in 1995 and has been here ever since.

At age 55, Michael began having problems hearing his wife’s voice in noisy environments. Having a friend in the hearing aid industry, he got his first set of hearing aids and was thoroughly disappointed. In a restaurant, all he could hear was background noise and still couldn’t understand his wife.

He finally found a better solution, hearing aids that would let him control the microphones; by turning down background noise and focusing on his wife. Having shown an interest and understanding of how hearing aids can work, the company owner asked him if he would be interested in working in the hearing industry. He was considering a life change anyway and accepted the offer.

After completing a two-year apprenticeship and passing his state practical and written exams, he continued to work with the large company for four years. Eventually, he decided he wanted to have more freedom in the amount of time he spent with each patient.

In order to be able to provide superior service, he opened New Mexico Hearing Aid & Tinnitus Center.
