New Orleans Speech and Hearing Center

“I am 81 years old, retiree with a low monthly income. I was referred to the NOSHC by my doctor, as I was having big hearing problems and could not afford to buy hearing aids. I applied for free aids and was approved right away without a long waiting period or any hassle. The office staff was very helpful. The audiology doctor, who worked on my hearing aids, was very kind and patient with me. I was provided hearing aids free of charge. It's a great help and my life is much better as I can now communicate with people around me. I am very grateful to the NOSHC, to Dr. Melody B. Walsh and to the office staff. ”
