“I had nothing done. They didn't know what I was talking about. I was trying to find out if they could repair some hearing aids. They did not appear to know what they were talking about. ”

“Hearing aids are less bulky, smaller and more natural. They sound more natural, less electronic, more like my hearing used to sound back in my 30's (I am 87 now). Very good service. Quality of care is first rate, congenial and pleasant. Thank you!”
