My own grandfather was one of my first patients and I owe my whole career to him. He wasn’t grand in stature but he was a giant of a man when it came to showing kindness and looking after others. He was always there for people. On weekends all the local high school guys without a ride would pile in his car for the two-hour drive to the ski hill. I was 12 years old when he first took me along. The car was always full.

Over the years I spent a lot of time with my grandfather hunting, fishing, skiing, and helping to mow his lawn. When I knew him, he’d always had quite a hearing loss. Having been on the front lines in World War I, I think he lost his hearing at a young age.

He was one of the first people I fitted with hearing aids. I can still see the grateful and astounded smile on his face as he stared in the distance and nodded his head in approval. And I was so proud to help him so much.

Later he told me how astonishing it was to hear his friends and the sermon at church. Knowing that my grandfather went to church every Sunday, (expect in hunting or fishing season, for which the Lord makes a provision), I was shocked when he revealed that he hadn’t been able to hear the preacher for as long as he could remember. I asked him why he’d been going to church all these years if he couldn’t make out what was being said. His response touched me to the core, “I go because all my friends are there. I go just to be with them.”

People with a hearing loss needn’t settle for “just being there.” Let’s enjoy what’s being said.

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
