About Us

Our Mission Statement

Our mission at INTEGRATED HEARING SOLUTIONS is to improve the quality of life for our patients. A fundamental element of our mission statement is the provision of services resulting in superior patient satisfaction. We realize that our service is only as good as it is perceived by our patients. Consequently, we feel that the communication between our company and our patient is our best feedback. We will always give our patients an honest answer about their current hearing status and choices. Those answers will not be based on profit, they will be based on what is best for you.

"Our goal is to make your hearing better, not to sell you hearing aids."
- Bob Olson

Meet Robert (Bob) Olson, HIS

Robert L. Olson (Bob) is fully licensed by the State of Minnesota as a Certified Hearing Instrument Dispenser.

Bob is a caring and dedicated professional whose own family has struggled with hearing loss. Because his mother, father-in-law, and mother-in-law have all experienced significant hearing loss, Bob is able to understand the frustrations of both patients and their families in dealing with their inability to effectively communicate with each other. Bob can relate to the social and mental frustrations that people with a hearing loss encounter every day and is dedicated to improving the lives of his patients.

Bob is a past president of the Bloomington Jaycees and served as a member of his parish council. He volunteers with local organizations to provide food and help to those in need.

"When my father-in-law was in need of hearing aids, it was Bob Olson he turned to and trusted. Basing his practice on integrity and truthfulness, Bob's understanding of the value hearing aids provide to the patient and his ability to explain it comprehensively is testament of a true professional. My father-in-law has since passed, but his life was made so much richer having the ability to hear."
