“I have been to the Wadsworth office and most recently the New Philadelphia office. Both offices are great - very friendly and informative helped me to pick a hearing aid that was right for me and they are great when you need adjustments also. I would recommend to family and friends who need help. ”

“I am a patient of Dr. Ellie Foltz of the New Philadelphia office. When I met Ellie the first time, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had tinnitus in my left ear and was affecting my hearing. I have been to several ear doctors and nothing seems to work. Out of frustrations I decided to try Choice Hearing Center and set up an appointment to see somebody that could help me. From the first time I met Ellie Foltz, I knew I have found my guardian angel. She understood my frustrations and knew what I needed. Ellie not only was concern about my hearing but also my frustrations with my tinnitus. She went to work and now I am not only hearing better, but my tinnitus has also decreased. I no longer hear the swishing noises like before. The biggest change in all of this is my mental stability. I was getting moody and short tempered and my wife wasn't enjoying being around me. Thank you Dr, Ellie Foltz for giving me back my life and my wife. I can't wait for my next visit and thank you again for everything.”

“My aunt is 80 yrs old and came here for hearing aids that changed her life! She would like to say "My spirits were lifted by being able to hear sounds again! " The staff was pleasant and easy to work with. Eric patiently worked with my aunt to find hearing aids that fit her lifestyle and budget. They made it easy to understand how the hearing aids worked and how to put them in/out as well as how to take care of them. We would highly recommend this facility. ”
