AG: Hearing-aid fitter may be working illegally

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A former hearing aid fitter who is no longer permitted to do business in Pennsylvania may be working illegally in Adams and York counties, state officials said Friday.

Timothy John Rooney Jr. may be posing as a registered hearing aid fitter, Attorney General Kathleen Kane and Health Secretary Michael Wolf said in a joint news release.

Rooney operated under the names American Hearing Aid Centers Inc. and American Hearing Centers Inc.

He had offices at 380 Lincoln Highway East and 2230 Oxford Road in New Oxford, and in Grandview Plaza, Suite E, at 1446 Baltimore Street in Hanover.

Rooney's registration with the Department of Health was suspended for five years in August and was later revoked, based on past unsatisfactory conduct while fitting and selling hearing aids, according to the news release.

Consumers are asked to contact the state attorney general's office if they are approached by Rooney.

Complaints can be filed by calling 1-877-888-4877 or visiting www.attorneygeneral.gov.
