About Our Hearing Center
Who We Are
El Paso Hearing Aid & Audiology Center is the place where you want your loved one to go for hearing healthcare. We have served the hearing healthcare needs of El Paso and Southern New Mexico for 59 years. The practice is owned and operated by audiologists Matthew Lyon and Kerry Lyon. The owner audiologists provide high quality service and maintain the ultimate in ethical standards. Our patients are the most important part of our business.
El Paso Hearing Aid Center, Inc. opened in 1955, founded by Ed and Jeanne Lyon in El Paso, Texas. It continues today as an audiology and hearing aid practice, owned and operated by Ed and Jeanne's youngest son, Matthew Lyon, and his wife, Kerry Lyon. Two other practices were acquired in the late 1990's, with locations in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and Alamogordo, New Mexico. Matthew and Kerry Lyon provide diagnostic hearing evaluations and hearing aid services in all three locations. They are based in El Paso and travel to the satellite offices in New Mexico on three days out of every week.
We accept patients of all ages. Referrals are accepted from all sources, including physicians, insurance companies, the Veterans Administration, vocational assistance agencies in Texas and New Mexico, schools, and other Federal, State and Local government agencies as well as private individuals.
The original practice was an Audivox hearing aid dealership. Ed Lyon sold hearing aids door-to-door, which was standard practice in the 1950’s. Ed and Jeanne Lyon later opened a storefront in downtown El Paso at 425 N. Mesa Street. The company operated from that location until 1976 when they built a new office building four blocks from the original location. The practice remained in that location for the next 32 years. Purchased in 1998 by Matthew and Kerry Lyon, the patient base and scope of practice expanded to include diagnostic audiology services. A new dba name was created to preserve the old, identifiable name and add an indicator of the new services: El Paso Hearing Aid & Audiology Center. With two full-time audiologists and three full-time support staff the practice outgrew its old home at 810 N. Kansas St. and moved to the current location in 2008. The state-of-the-art audiology clinic is housed in a 4400-square foot facility at 1500 N. Mesa St. The new building has spacious patient examination rooms and allows for specialized patient service rooms. Front-door parking and a large parking lot are appreciated by our customers. We are located at the corner of Cliff and Mesa streets in the Medical Center area of town with easy access to physician offices. We are here for you Monday through Friday from 8:30 – 5:30.
Our second location, Las Cruces Hearing Center was purchased in 1999 upon the retirement of its founder, Harry Zimmerman, an audiologist who served as an instructor and mentor to Kerry and Matthew Lyon during their years in graduate school. The practice is in a medical condominium complex at 2525 S. Telshor Blvd. in Las Cruces, New Mexico, across the street from Memorial Medical Center. The office is open from 8:30 – 3:30, Monday through Friday and is staffed by one full-time employee. The practice has been in the current location for 21 years.
Southwest Hearing Services is located in Medical Arts Plaza at 1211 10th St. in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Southwest Hearing Services was purchased from George Morrison in 1998 when he left the profession of audiology to pursue other interests. He opened Southwest Hearing Services in 1979 and it is still operating for its original location.
