Help U Hear Hearing Aid Center is a family-owned and operated business opened May 2016 in Wixom, Michigan. A proud member of the Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, we are the premiere hearing center for Oakland County that puts patients’ needs above all else. Our mission is to fit all patients with the proper assistive technology and guidance to address their specific hearing loss and quality of life goals.
Dr. Timothy Needham, Au.D., CCC-A, F-AAA, is a state certified Audiologist with the State of Michigan and nationally board certified with the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and The American Academy of Audiology. Hailing from Naperville, Illinois, Timothy earned his Bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and his Doctorate degree from Western Michigan University.
Tim is an avid sports fan; he enjoys going down to Detroit to see the Red Wings and the Tigers and is a lifelong supporter of the Chicago Cubs. He was also a member of the Michigan State University marching band and loves cheering on his Spartans in football and basketball. Speaking of band, his doctoral work specifically focused on musicians in Western Michigan’s marching band concerning noise-induced hearing loss and the findings were astonishing. Some of his participants were receiving three years of noise exposure over the course of only one week when compared to the average person’s noise exposure!
Along with his studies, Tim has found time to volunteer with the worldwide group Los Medicos Voladores or “The Flying Doctors” giving much needed medical treatment to underprivileged populations.
At home, Tim likes to work on home improvement projects and woodworking with his Grandfather’s tools. He is happily married to his longtime partner Jennifer, and they just welcomed their first child into the family joining their two existing “fur babies” (Pomeranians).
