Moses was one of my special people. I met him at my office in Hilo 27 years ago. I believe that life – or God – sends to us special people, you know? He was unforgettable, first because he was 100 years old and I didn’t have any other 100-year-old patients in my practice at that time. He was wearing shorts, a t-shirt and slippers, but what really stood out was his long white hair.

He was unforgettable, too, for his laugh, the infectious kind that comes often and from deep within the heart.

Puzzled, I asked him, “Why now, after all these years, are you getting hearing aids?” He didn’t pause. He just laughed and pointed to the waiting room, “Do you see those young people who brought me here?”

I had, actually: the “young people” were in their 20’s and 30’s. He continued, “Those aren’t my grandchildren; they are my great, great grandchildren, and one of them is my great, great, great grandchild. They want me to be able to hear them but, most importantly, they told me they wanted to talk with me because I had so much to teach them.”

And then this wise old man looked deep into my eyes with a smile and said, “I can’t wait! Where’s my hearing aids?”

I fitted him with the hearing aids and never saw him again. I often wonder what he taught those great, great, great grandchildren. Imagine 100 years of stories direct from a man who was already a father at the start of The Great War. I wonder if he laughed at the young people’s jokes now that he could hear them. Today he would be 127 and he’s still teaching me with the memory of his laugh and his clear message about what really makes us complete, fulfilled and happy.

Thank you, Moses…

YOUR TOP RATED & NEW FAVORITE HEARING SPECIALIST IN HILO AND KAILUA-KONA, HI...

I was very impressed by the quality of the care and the exemplary service that I and my family received! I highly recommend them! They use a variety of tests and spend the time to explain everything to you and they answer your questions very patiently! Mahalo!!! - Barony barony hawaii 5 star review

Came in yesterday for my mother due to an ad invite for a new hearing device and instead got more than we came for, a thorough ear/hearing tests and insurance options expert advice without sales pitch hint. Dr. Wesley Nakamura's patience and knowledge made us feel comfortable and he genuinely wants to help us, putting our best interest first. Neat and clean office with super friendly staff! Too bad Yelp only got 5 stars when I could easily give it a 10! Thank you Wes and the staff !!! Aloha! - Andy andy hawaii 5 star review

I took a hearing test there and had the best experience ever! Dr. Nakamura is really generous, friendly, and heartwarming. He made sure if I felt comfortable when I am in the small room for the hearing test. He knows well with hearing aids and he fixed feedback of my hearing aid like in 5 minutes. The feedback bothered me for a long time but it got so much better. He speaks Japanese very well, too. I would definitely come back to here if I ever get a problem with my hearing aids. Thank you so much!! - Manae mane hawaii 5 star review
