Meet Ann Plotnick

Ann Plotnick headshot

As a Hearing Instrument Specialist, I help with personal communications by conducting individualized hearing assessments which lead to hearing aid sales, fittings, and long-term hearing healthcare.

I am passionate about helping those with hearing loss function to the best ability as possible. For some people hearing loss is considered a handicap, for others, it's a minor disability overcome by the use of very discreet state-of-the-art hearing aids.

"I have had my new rechargeable Oticon hearing aids not even a full day, and have noticed a HUGE difference from my previous hearing aids.These new hearing aids filter out background noise perfectly! My fireplace fan is noisy, but I can barely hear it with these hearing aids. Usually background noise outside is so loud I can’t understand what people say to me. With these new hearing aids I can hold a conversation with little background noise interference."

"Such a great experience, could not have been better.I was nervous going in, I haven't really had any hearing tests or ear exams and I didn't know what to expect. Everyone was very nice and immediately felt at ease.There was a brief interview and then I did a hearing test. Both were very easy breezy. Then they walked me through my results. I was expecting to be told I had hearing loss but instead, I received some strategies to help with what I've been experiencing.I felt very comfortable with both the level of expertise and experience and the thoughtful process was a bonus."

"My Grandmother and Mother enjoyed every moment of their whole appointment. We recommend Dr. Plotnick to anyone looking for a excellent hearing specialist. The office is very clean and well cared for . The receptionist is very kind sweet and professional her insurance was verified ahead of time and all financial issues were addressed before hand and not pressured into buying the most expensive options available. This is the first time my grandma left feeling like she was the most important patient of the day. I highly recommend Dr. Plotnick to anyone of all ages. We are so grateful to find Rainer hearing.Thank you!Rae Berning :)"

"I found Anne Plotnick to be very experienced and very capable. I liked that she feels people should have a copy of their hearing test for their records to see how things change over time. She spent time explaining it and several other things related to hearing and my hearing aid options. I feel like I couldn't have gone to a more competent person for getting new hearing aids."

"I wish I could rate my experience at Rainer Hearing above five stars! Amelia listened to my concerns about wearing hearing aids in my work environment (as well as finding the perfect color to go with my hair!) The evaluation was thorough and took my needs into consideration. She was very caring, professional, and took the time I needed to decide on the best hearing aids for me! An added bonus is the location is easy to find with a welcoming environment."

"I stopped in because my receiver wire was broken. My aids are older and had been purchased in another state. They had parts for my brand and found pieces that worked. All of this on the spot, and they threw in a free cleaning. I was in and out in less than 15 minutes and couldn’t be happier!"

"I hesitated going in for hearing aids. I'm not that old, I told myself. When tested, I was told This isn't a close call. From that moment on, I was all in. My experiences at Rainier Hearing were exceptional. The staff is friendly, knowedgable, helpful, and affirming. I have had zero issues with my aids and love the quality of my hearing. I'm thrilled to have better hearing. Thanks Rainier Hearing for the new quality of my life."

"If I could, I'd give Ann and her staff at Ranier Hearing 10 stars. From my initial appointment to fine-tuning my new hearing aids, Ann, Amelia, and Kaitlin have gone beyond the extra mile and delivered their services with radiant smiles, visible even behind their masks. I can't imagine a more competent and caring team. "

"My initial visit was a drop in to ask for a copy of the first hearing test that I received by the previous provider at that location. Amelia not only provided me with that but offered to examine my current hearing aids, cleaned them, made some adjustments to them to help improve their functionality. She also invited me to learn about the latest innovations without the least bit of pressure to purchase. A few weeks later I made an appointment for a hearing test at this office and met Ann. She and Amelia work as a team complementing each other's contribution to my care. I learned from them that I should have been getting after purchase care at least every 6 months which I had not been getting. They explained in detail that my continual loss of hearing in my right ear may have been exacerbated by the in adequate care I had been given in the past. I now have a new and extremely high quality hearing aids but more importantly I also have new and extremely high quality providers. Thank you Ann and Amelia. You have made a vast improvement in the quality of my life."

"Am so happy Ann purchased this hearing clinic! Always able to answer every question in layman’s terms & provided hands on help with new smartphone tech. Of course, her help assisted me in learning new ways which I have applied. As a teacher, am always challenging myself to learn the new ways of our world. As a walker & hiker, I’ve been amazed how many sounds are more vivid & crisp…sounds of songbirds, leaves, winds, & faraway sounds I completely missed b/4. The world feels more alive! Also , a thanks to Kaitlin who has proficiently answered all my questions & connected me to the right person at Humana. ☀️"

"The service provided by Ann and Amelia was exceptional. They made adjustments and then more adjustments until the hearing aids were perfect, showing great patience, diligence and attention to detail. They are very good-natured and weren’t happy until I was happy with the hearing aids (and I am totally happy with them!). "

"I did a lot of research before I felt comfortable with the right place for my first time getting hearing aids; thank goodness I found Bellingham Hearing Center, and Ann, who is so good at zeroing in to exactly what my specific needs were. She is a great listener, (no pun intended), and really got into the fine tuning of my hearing aids. They are always available to answer any questions, and have made this very difficult decision a pretty easy one.Doug C."

"I have had hearing aids for four years. Recently, I got new ones from USA In-Home Hearing. These new hearing aids have significantly improved the quality of my life. I can now hear people talking to me from another room and enjoy being able to stream podcasts or take phone call directly through these devices. The experience I had working with Anne to fine tune the devices was a true pleasure. She is at once professional and personable. I recommend the product and services highly."

"I called to schedule an in home visit for my father. He has never been happy with his current hearing aids and they were not functioning properly. I left a voice mail and received a call back same day even though Ann was at an airport in Nashville. We scheduled an in home visit and my father could not be happier with his experience. Ann is knowledgeable, competent and thoroughly explained each step in the process. Dad tried out a demo set of hearing aids that had him hearing better than he had in years all from the comfort of home! Ann loves what she does and is passionate about better hearing. It was a pleasure to have her in our home!"

"I really appreciated the services of Ann Plotnick, who displayed exemplary dedication and expertise when it came to testing and providing hearing aids for my elderly Aunt Betty. It was the perfect solution for Betty as she is unable to travel from the care center where she lives in order to have her hearing tested. That Ann could come to her was a God-send. And I so appreciated that she spent the time it took to be sure Betty had just the right type of hearing aids and that they worked just as she needed them. I have given Ann's cards to the care center staff and recommended her to others I know who might have a similar need. Thank you so much, Ann!"

"Everything went smoothly getting hearing aids for my mother. Ann Plotnick was a gem to work with. She came to Ridge View Rehabilitation Skilled Nursing Center where my mother had to stay after her hospital visit to bring her strength up. After my mother saw Ann for a hearing test and decided she wanted to get the hearing aids. Ann came directly to her for a fitting. Once they were completed and ready to be picked up she offered to come to our house or we come in the office. We did chose the office but it was nice to know that she could come to us. I'm sure that is a good practice for clients who can't leave their homes. The whole transaction went smoothly. I would recommend anyone who needs hearing aids for their loves ones or friends to come to your establishment. Again thank you Ann for all your help. Cathy and Kateri"
