We are Delaware's longest continually operating hearing aid dispensing practice. We were founded in 1932 by Israel Handelman. Originally located in the city of Wilmington, the practice moved to the Talleyville Shopping Center at the corner of Concord Pike and Silverside Road when the Plaza opened in the 1960s.
More recently, Dr. Michael Michelli joined the practice in April, 2000. He purchased the practice from the Handelman family in 2010 and has transformed the practice into Brandywine Hearing Center. We moved within the Plaza at the beginning of 2017 into a larger, redesigned office space. We now offer a more spacious hearing testing suite and state of the art testing and hearing aid fitting equipment. While we have been in business for a very long time, we have never stopped in our quest to provide our patients with the best service possible.
Brandywine Hearing Center provides audiological evaluations, hearing aid fitting, adjustments and repairs, assistive listening devices, custom earmolds and custom hearing protection. We work with all major hearing aid manufacturers.
Our company strives to provide the best hearing healthcare for our customers. We recognize the importance of Human Communication and interaction, as well as the significant burden loss of hearing can place on our customers, their family and friends. We believe every person should have the right to try amplification before they are required to make a payment, as well as the right to return the device if they are not satisfied. We are not satisfied until our customer is satisfied, and everyone should “Try Before They Buy!“
