About the Practice

Twin Rivers Hearing Health provides treatment for hearing loss and tinnitus to people of all ages in Rhode Island. We help everyone from newborns to senior citizens. We can help you improve your hearing in a way that primary care physicians cannot by selling, fitting, and maintaining hearing aids. We can also provide you with assistive listening devices like televisions and telephone amplifiers.

We also help people with noise-induced hearing loss due to job-related noise exposure by providing diagnostic workers with compensation evaluations, training them about hearing conservation, and supplying custom-made earplugs for protection. All this makes us the best choice for Audiology in Rhode Island.

Specialties include:

Comprehensive Hearing Testing
Hearing Aid Repair
Ear Wax Removal

Insurance/Financing Information

Most health insurance plans do cover the cost of the initial hearing test. Some insurance plans, such as Blue Chip and United Health Plans of New England, may provide partial payment for hearing instruments if they are accompanied by a physician referral. However, other insurance companies do not cover hearing aids.

Our staff does all of the required paperwork and will help you determine what services your insurance policy covers.

"I had a Xmas miracle - Dr. Mary Kay is my savior! I had tinnitus in both ears which drove me crazy, she listened to what I was saying and worked with me for 2 years and now I’m free from high pitched noise in my ears. I was not a number like some places, I was family member that she cared for with patience, understanding and respect! Love this women! Let me not forget her wonderful side kick receptionist Lee who is the sweetest person ever…. No words could express my happiness ( now I can hear everything my husband without saying what? This could be a good or bad haha)"

"If there were 10 stars to give, I would give them to Dr. Mary Kay!!! She is amazing on so many levels. She offers two giant gifts Hope and Hearing!! Dr. Mary Kay not only beholds a great knowledge of ear health, diagnosis and hearing, she is also thorough, direct and compassionate. My personal experience was incredible. I truly believed there was no hope. Not only was there hope, I can hear- she offers both. Her bedside manner is exceptional and services affordable. I knew I was in very good hands. It has been such a relief to find her and to know I was trusting the right person. I look forward to working with Dr. Mary Kay whenever a need may arise."

"Love the hearing aids! Superior sound finally. I felt the audiologist should have known more regarding the apps on the phone and the programming to the apps. I strongly feel the receptionist should attend seminars; my questions are often referred to them as the audiologist is away or busy. "

"Mary Kay is by far the best when it comes to hearing appliances and evaluating your hearing loss. I have been dealing with hearing loss for over 20 years and have had several sets of hearing aids. She spend time doing tests on my hearing that have never been done before. She is through, and wants to be sure that you are satisfied with your hearing aids and your experience in her office. She also stays educated and understands hearing in this new tech age of Bluetooth and phones. "

~ Susan B.

"At 47, I didn't expect my doctor to tell me I needed hearing aids and as a professional, I didn't want everyone to know I was wearing them. Mary Kay and Linda are great. They walked me through the process, helping me choose the best products to meet my needs, concerns, and budget. I would highly recommend Twin Rivers Hearing Health to anyone in need of an Audiologist. They are the best!"
