Meet Tammy Wood

Tammy Wood headshot

"I was raised by my great grandparents and grandparents. Three of them had significant hearing loss. As a teenager I worked in a ladies-only retirement home and was responsible for their activities. It was difficult to communicate with some as they also had hearing loss but did not use hearing aids. Later in life I had the opportunity to be educated and trained as a hearing aid dispenser when EarQ first opened. In June of 2004, I became board certified in hearing instrument sciences. Board certification means that your hearing healthcare professional has been accredited by the National Board for Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences (NBC-HIS). Over the years I have built wonderful relationships with the people I serve. The most fulfilling part of my job is to see the changes that occur as a patient starts to hear and communicate better. Their whole demeanor changes, and they seem happier, younger, and more engaged in life. I want to continue to help people achieve this."

"I want to recognize Patrick in the Ithaca office as one of the most caring people I have ever done business with. I bought my hearing aids the day I went for a hearing test. I have not been sorry in any way. My quality of life has improved 100%. Kelly in the office was also super helpful! I think I came back in almost every day that first week. The best thing I have ever spent my money on. I call it an investment in myself and all my friends and family. They all like being around the new me in so many ways. Patrick is the best! Thank you for your many kindness’s to me!"

"The staff at the Ithaca office is amazing. I have had a few audiologists since my hearing loss, however, I must say Judy is the absolute best. She is very patient and explained things to me about my hearing loss, that were never explained to me before by previous hearing loss consultants. The appointments were convenient and there was no wait time. Overall, I am very satisfied with the care that I receive."

"My experience at Hearing Aid Consultants CNY was positive right from the start! They were my second opinion, and were so easy to work with. They contacted my insurance company and got me the best possible deal on my hearing aids. Patrick was never pushy or salesy. He was just informative and helpful. I would recommend hearing aid consultants to anyone!"

"This is the first time that I needed help hearing. Peter and his staff were so easy to work with. He explained everything I needed to know concerning how to use the hearing aides to cleaning and maintaining them. I highly recommend this company for your hearing aid needs. On a side note I couldn’t find my hearing aides. In a panic I called the office and Colleen was quick to help as was Terri the day before when I was trying to pair my devices with a new phone. Long story short I found my devices covered by my bed quilt. Peter took the time to reach out to me to ask where I found them. A wonderful company with a top notch staff! Thanks to Peter and his team!"

I reached out to the Hearing Aid Consultants of CNY and they were ready to help with our needs! Colleen, who works in the front office, is so kind and helpful as well. We booked our appointment easily and our performers said the visit was excellent. I highly recommend this office! 11/10"

"I have been going to various audiologists since the late 1970’s. I have no hesitancy in saying Hearing Aid Consultants are the best kind of people you want helping you with your audiology needs wether you’re a veteran or a new user. Their prices are competitive and reasonable, if not better, compared to what other clinics have charged me. If needed, you can apply to a zero percent medical line of credit (outside credit company) on the spot. The newer technology available today such as Bluetooth connectivity is a game changer. Communicating in person, on the phone, in group settings….it’s just great how far it has come. I like that they offer a wide range of options so everyone has something available to them that they will be comfortable with. The fact that the hearing aids offered here require fine detailed tweaking over multiple visits as long as you need til you’re happy is an attestation of the quality of technology and their customer service. Be sure to ask about other equipment like TV audio Bluetooth transmitters and phone accessories to make things even easier for yourself. If hearing aids are new to you, or if you’re a seasoned user, this is a great place to go. It can be overwhelming and sometimes stressful, but worth it. You might not even know what you want or where to start, but they have your back. Let these folks help you, they are all so great."

"I have worn hearing aids for almost 12 years and began to notice a change in my hearing. I made an appointment at Hearing Aid Consultants for a re-evaluation. Peter was so kind, caring and knowledgeable. He thoroughly explained my hearing deficit and the options available to help me. There was no pressure to purchase new hearing aids, although that was the decision I made. Peter was committed to ensuring my hearing aids were the best fit for me personally. I highly recommend Hearing Aid Consultants in Baldwinsville. You won't regret it. "

"My experience at HAC of CNY, Ithaca was excellent! My new hearing aids are life changing! I couldn't be happier with the ones I am currently using. I tried the custom aids and couldn't get used to the feeling of being under water. After about 6 to 8 weeks Judy brought me in to introduce me to my new hearing aids. The clarity and sound are fantastic. I can't believe how much I've been missing. Besides Judy being ready and willing to work with me Kelly is a God send!!! She has helped me with everything from billing and exchanges and a number of issues that I was having. I will always go back to Ithaca HAC. And now even better news, they called to tell me my insurance will cover something! The good news at HAC, Ithaca never stops! I highly recommend them!"

"After receiving a medical clearance for hearing aids the big decision was who to go to? I wanted someone nearby and I found Hearing Aid Consultants in B'ville. After reading their great reviews I chose them. It was the best decision I have made. Peter is very easy to talk toe. He answers all your questions and spends time explaining them. He and Terry are great people to deal with. I would highly recommend them."

"I am a forty year old woman with moderate hearing loss due to ruptured ear drums that never healed properly. I never realized how much my life would change after getting hearing aids from Pete. Not only did he understand exactly what I was going through, he was so knowledgeable with his products. I should have bought these years ago. They have made me so much happier. The frustration of asking people to repeat themselves, pretending to be a part of conversations, not hearing in restaurants is over. If you are hesitant, you must go to Pete and Co and ask questions. He is very kind and patient. You will be happy you did!"

"My mom and I went here to get a hearing test. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. She understood right away that my mom was hard of hearing and she talked louder and directly to her and that made my mom feel comfortable. The hearing specialist, Peter seen the both of us that day. He was extremely patient with my mom and explained everything he was going to do before he did it to make her feel at ease. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who needs a hearing test and hearing aids. They are extremely knowledgeable and they don't push you to get hearing aids. They go over your test results, explain your options and let you make the choice."

"My daughter Molly is a patient at the Cortland office and for a few years I had been dealing with hearing loss, but was not comfortable with the place I had previously gone to. My daughter recommended Hearing Consultants because of her experience and I am so glad she did. I have had such a wonderful experience dealing with Tammy Wood. You really have the feeling that the whole staff cares about your welfare."

"My husband just purchased updated hearing aids. He is not someone who embraces technology so the patience of Judy and her staff is appreciated. He hears so much better now, we were not pressured into buying something he did not need. He feels free to call them if he has a question. We really appreciate the free batteries and supplies. Let's face it most people have better places to spend their money and the batteries and supplies really help us out. He wears his hearing aids faithfully and does so because they are made for him and the office took the time to fit them and train him on their use. NO more shouting at our house :)"

"I am a Board Member of a group in Baldwinsville, NY called The Female Charitable Society, who was preparing to celebrate the group's 200th year in June , 2017, and required a lot of meetings. I had begun to notice that it was beginning to be difficult for me to hear some of the Board Members reports, at these special meetings and our regular monthly meetings. It was also getting harder to hear the TV. As much as I didn't want to admit I needed hearing aids, I am so glad I looked into aids. I feared everyone would notice them (and comment) or begin speaking much more loudly. I went to the phone book to find a service, the first in the alphabet and near to Baldwinsville, was Hearing Aid Consultants of CNY. I went online and heard referrals for Peter J. McMahon. I called for an appointment; and everyone who recommended Peter was right. He is personable, very thorough in the testing of your hearing. Once I decided to purchase the hearing aids, I haven't regretted it. If I need supplies, my husband and I stop at the office, greet Terri, and pick them up on our way to shopping. I am able to hear at meetings, or any place that involves crowds, and can hear dialogue in TV shows. The hearing aids are nearly invisible once placed in your ears. Most people, don't even notice the clear wires."

Peter and the crew are professional and they know what they're doing. They're also personable and truly seem to care about their clients. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone!"

"After seeing several audiologists who made me feel like I as on a used car lot, it was so nice to find these guys. They take the time to answer questions and go over information, without the pushy sales I've found in other places. I've been going there regularly for almost three years so far, and I have to say it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Hearing aids have changed my life, and my family."

"I brought my grandmother to see Tammy and she treated her like gold. My grandmother didn't even buy her hearing aids there and was able to make the appropriate adjustments and now there is no other place we will go. My grandmother ended up getting her second set from Tammy and is even happier with her current recommendation. She was honest and fair. Would recommend this place to anyone!"
