“I was really nervous about getting hearing aides, I needed them for work and I called and got in right away. My experience was life changing! I couldn’t believe what I was missing due to my hearing loss. Dr. Rachael was GREAT, she explained everything in a personal way and was super excited for helping me to hear again. Kelsey was very helpful as well, in helping me with anything we needed! I’d say overall it was a great experience for myself and my family... Thank you so much Heartland Hearing Center! ”
