“I brought my grandmother there for an appointment. We had nothing done. They would not see her. We were not told over the phone that they would not offer service. They didn't accept her insurance.”

“Outstanding. Dr. Schwartz and her staff are so wonderful with my mom. At 72 years young, my mom is very strong willed and quite concerned about her budget. So while she was aware that she had some hearing loss, she was very anxious about the cost for better hearing, so she preferred to accept her hearing situation or lack of, instead of seeking help. After a few years of teasing, we convinced mom to have a hearing test. We went to Audiology Concepts where Dr. Schwartz and her team took the time to explain hearing loss and how the right equipment could really change my mom's life. Dr. Schwartz throughly explained the level of my mom's hearing loss and offered her a week's trial with a hearing aid that did exactly what Dr. Schwartz explained it would do, change her life. She presented affordable products that are very easy to use and completely resolved all of my mom's questions and concerns. Thank you to Dr. Schwartz and the team at Audiology Concepts for your kind and compassionate care of my mom and for really changing her life. ”
“He was on time. He was courteous. He was very pleasant and he knew what he was doing.”
“He was straight forward and understanding and able to adjust my hearing aids successfully.”
