When Sonotone Shawnee first opened its doors in Shawnee, Oklahoma, in April 1947 as a hearing aid place, little did the owner imagine that the practice would continue for over seven decades!

From its beginning in downtown Shawnee, Sonotone was renamed Allan’s Hearing Center and was relocated to Benedict St, where it stayed for over 30 years. In 1990, Dr. Kalies renamed the company as Hearing Health Care and bought the practice from his father, Frank Kalies. In 2011, Hearing Health Care, Inc. moved to Kickapoo Ave. In 2019, the practice decided it was time to renovate and moved into a brand new space.

Thank you, Shawnee — our home since 1947!
