We, City Hearing Aids (CHA), are one of the fastest growing premier chains of speech and hearing centres in Karnataka. Our story began in 2015, when the company was founded by Chief Audiologist Dr. Praveen Chowthi in a little corner in South Bangalore. Initially only providing hearing services to customers in Banashankari, we have now expanded to many parts in Bangalore and other locations in Karnataka as well.
We have been learning and evolving from our very inception, growing our customers’ experience from Satisfaction to Happiness, and towards Delight.
