Reviews

The Site seeks honest and descriptive reviews about consumer experiences at hearing centers across the country. These consumer reviews are posted on the clinic profile pages for which they are submitted.

Submitting a review

All forms of clinic review submittals are intended for use by individuals who have visited a particular clinic and wish to share their experience with other visitors to the Site. They are also intended to be submitted by reviewers that are not affiliated in any way with the establishment they are reviewing.

There are three methods by which a consumer review may be submitted:

  1. Online: Consumers may submit a review of a hearing center online through the center’s profile page on the Site.
  2. Mail: Consumers may submit a review of a hearing center by mailing in a review postcard, available from the hearing center.
  3. Phone: A small sampling of consumers who use the Site to find a hearing center may be selected to complete a brief, voluntary phone survey that is conducted by a third-party firm. After completion, consumers have the option to provide a review of their experience at the hearing center.

All reviews submitted to the Site will be examined by a staff member before being published. Reviews are generally posted within 1-3 business days of submission.

Clinics are notified via email when a new review of their clinic is received. If a clinic receives a review that is less than positive, the clinic will be given an opportunity to write a response to the review which will then be published with that review.

Review policies

A complete first and last name are required for review submission, however, only the first name and last initial will be published.

The Site reserves the right to choose not to publish any review deemed inappropriate for the following reasons:

  • Any review that appears to be spam
  • Any review that is potentially libelous
  • Any review submitted without the reviewer’s name
  • Any review with an obviously fake name
  • Any review that appears to violate the privacy of an individual
  • Any review that appears to have been submitted in error
  • Any review that appears to be a duplicate of a previous review
  • Any review containing language considered inappropriate for the Site, including, but not limited to, foul language, threats, harassment, lewdness and hate speech
  • Any review that appears to be written by a current or former clinic owner, employee or competitor
  • Any review that appears to be faked or falsified
  • Any review with a star rating that is inconsistent with the written comments
  • Any review that is too brief to describe the experience in a way that justifies the star rating

The Site reserves the right to remove the following from an otherwise compliant review:

  • any inappropriate text as described above
  • any pricing or branding information for specific hearing aids
  • any competitor names
  • any patient names other than the review writer

In addition to being a violation of our reviews guidelines and an unethical practice, submitting fraudulent reviews is also prohibited by law in many jurisdictions.
