“Very thorough and caring. Explains everything well. Helpful follow up visits as there’s a lot of tech in the new hearing aids.”
“By my second follow-up visit, I knew my unusually small ear canals couldn't handle CIC devices. No problem! Dr. Koch is ready to try as many types and brands as it takes to please me -- at no extra cost. You can't get this level of attention and care at Costco -- or anywhere else. No wonder Evolution is Cville Magazine's Best year after year!”
“When I had to decide whether to return to Evolution Hearing to solve my deteriorating hearing, or go online for a “better deal,” I chose Evolution. After my very thorough hearing test and extensive discussion with Dr. Koch, I had decided. Not only were the prices similar, I would have the peace of mind that hearing support was close by. There is a reason Evolution Hearing is consistently rated the Best in Charlottesville: Kristin Koch and her staff are professional, friendly and honest. I felt I could discuss the pros and cons of either approach comfortably with them. I wholeheartedly recommend starting with Evolution Hearing for any hearing issue you have.”
“I stopped by Evolution Hearing on 12/20/21 to see if someone could verify the tip of my hearing aid was in my ear canal. No pain but everything was louder in my right ear. Tony was by himself but took the time to verify it was even though he wasn’t qualified to remove it. Thanks Tony for your concern and keeping me from being foolish going to an emergency ENT doctor if tip wasn’t there. ”
“Easy, thorough, efficient, very knowledgeable, pleasant staff, fine parking, answered all my questions, excellent care, THE place to go!!”
