“Dr. Darrow and staff are professional and comfortable to work with. My experience with my new hearing aids has been excellent. I can hear so much better. The follow-up visits have been quick, but they take the time to adjust the hearing aids to maximize my hearing experience. I recommend these folks wholeheartedly.”

“My former audiologist sold her business to Hearing Balance Center in Worcester. The new office on Shore Drive is great and the Staff is excellent. I have made 2 visits concerning problems with my hearing aids purchased 16 months ago from my previous audiologist. Dr. Darrow diagnosed the problems, returned them to the manufacturer and I had them back in 7 working days adjusted to the original settings and working perfect. I was very pleased with this service, promptness and professionalism.”
