“I liked how delicately Dr. Schmidt delivers information and education about hearing loss. These are my first hearing devices. Dr. Schmidt is very competent and a superb communicator. I am bringing my mom to her next week.”
“I liked being able to hear sounds that I have not heard for many years, like car rattles, clocks ticking, and my socks shuffling across carpet. The white noise that masks the ringing in my ears makes my ability to concentrate at work so rewarding. I also enjoy the streamer for hands free cell phone and watching TV. ”
“My hearing aids are already making a huge difference! While first hearing the news that I had hearing loss and needed hearing aids, Dr. Schmidt spent as much time as needed to help me fully understand what had happened, how wearing hearing aids would help, and helped me feel at ease. She was very informative, thorough, and compassionate. I feel like I not only have a SUPER Doctor taking care of me, but I have gained a very special friend as well. God bless her! (Without her testing, I would have never known) ”
“From a spouse's perspective, my wife's and my communication has improved greatly. She no longer says "huh" or "what". I love my wife's hearing aids, our life together has gotten back to what it used to be. ”
“Dr. Richardson is the best. He spent a long time with me explaining my options and answering all my questions. He did not pressure me to buy anything. I settled on the Oticon model and have had them now for three weeks. Very happy. Everything is so loud!!”
