“The initial meeting was with the front office saleswoman, who briefly explained the method they use to try to mitigated tinnitus. After we asked the cost of treatment, we were told that we'd need a second appointment to determine which system would best work for our situation, which would then determine the cost. We were then told we'd have to speak to a financing company to "qualify" before they would schedule another appointment. This made absolutely no sense since they didn't give us any information regarding the cost so we had no way of knowing if we needed financing or could pay out of pocket. We were then aggressively hustled to the very public phone at the receptionist's desk, in front of a waiting room of strangers, to speak to a financing company that they had on the phone. In a clinic treating people with hearing problems, in a noisy front office waiting room, we were being asked personal financial questions over the phone by a finance company we had never heard of or had an opportunity to research. It was a high-pressure, hard sell and hustle with absolutely no concern or consideration for our situation. ”
Official Response from Sound Relief Hearing Center - Highlands Ranch:“Marc, We understand how challenging it can be when a person has an untreated health condition, and that’s why we saw you in our office four times to try to assist you, all at no cost to you. When a person doesn’t have medical coverage or any other means to pay for our professional services or equipment, it becomes very difficult for us to continue to provide those services to them. We understand that can be upsetting. This is why we refer people in that situation to Vocational Rehabilitation to seek assistance. When someone is unable to get approved for financing and has no other way to pay for services, unfortunately there is nothing further we can offer. We wish you the best and hope that you are able to find the assistance you’re seeking. Dr. Julie and Patrick Prutsman, owners”
