“When my hearing aid broke and had nowhere to turn in Florida, I found Sound Advice Hearing Solutions and made an appointment with Audrey Hawley to have it repaired. As I was not happy with the hearing aids, Audrey did some testing on them, and my ears, and unfortunately and emotionally advised that I had developed profound hearing loss and was unable to hear speech any longer. She repaired my hearing aid but recommended I see a specialists for a cochlear implant consultation. I immediately rejected her diagnosis and that of four others, as I was certain that I could hear speech. I did however begin to research the possibility of an implant and was ultimately won over and implanted in June. Throughout the journey, selflessly, Audrey inquired about my situation despite there being no money to be made on me as I needed to continue to treat with the surgeon and his practice. I am now four months post activation and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just this morning I was able to hear the radio announcer in the car which I have not been able to do for at least 15 years. Without Audrey’s help, I probably would have never gone through with what was probably the most life altering experience that I will ever have. She had more of an effect on me than she ever realized. She probably saw me less than any of her other patients but helped me more than all of them put together! Thank you, Audrey, for your genuine and selfless advice. You are one of the few that actually really want to just help people. ”

“As a snow bird now living in St. Petersburg, I had no knowledge of whom to contact for new hearing aids. So I checked the internet for a facility nearby. Sound Advice was one of them and I decided to call them. I have made new friends there as everyone is so courteous, helpful and easily put you at ease and make you feel welcome. It was a delightful experience dealing with Dr. Breese, she is an asset to your operation. ”
