“Dr. Levy is the best! Patient, skilled, methodic & considerate. Explains in terms I understood -- I really like my hearing aids. They've improved my life. Lois taught the care & maintenance of hearing aids -- learned some very useful tips. She invited experts to help teach the class. This was a very comfortable environment, where I felt easy to ask questions. ”
