Audicles Hearing Services opened in downtown San Antonio, and was known Sonotone, a franchise office. At that time, audiologists were not allowed to dispense hearing aids, and the office was run by Arthur Gilbert Small, who was a Hearing Aid Dispenser. Mrs. Gretta Small helped run the company.
Mr. Small decided to become a multiline company and changed the name of the company to Audicles, which was a word for hearing aids that was used in the 1930s. Mr. Small’s daughter, Carrol Green, a second generation Hearing Aid Dispenser, left a career in teaching to help her family run the business. Carrol became the owner of Audicles Hearing Services when her parents retired.
Debbie DeLeon joined the team as an Assistant to the audiologists. She quickly became loved and trusted by the patients of Audicles Hearing Services.
Eli Hernandez joined the staff as an Extern in Audiology while finishing his Au.D. at Texas Tech University. He was such a perfect fit for Audicles that he stayed on after the completion of his degree!

“Before my visit to Audicles, I wasn’t sure if I could afford hearing aids”
I was in the car with my husband, son, and two young granddaughters. Everyone was engaged in an obviously fun and spirited conversation. Although I could hear they were speaking, I couldn’t make out what they were saying. I felt sad and left out of the conversation. I realised was up to ME to do something to change things.

“You will be treated as a human, not a patient”
My parents noticed my hearing loss when I was younger. I was 3 years old and my mom would be brushing my hair and talking to me, and I would say, ‘Mom, wait, I can’t hear you. Let me turn around so I can see you!

“We often go to them feeling hopeless, and we return home feeling hopeful”
I became concerned about my hearing when my wife would ask me a question and then raised her voice asking why did I not answer her. My reaction was, ‘What question?

“It doesn’t make you old. It doesn’t make you broken. It will change the way you live life“
I’ve always had bad hearing since I was a kid. But I noticed how bad it had gotten with the pandemic and wearing masks and realizing I was just good at lip reading. I work in customer service. So I felt it was affecting my job and needed to do something about it.
