“This was so easy! Now I don't have to wonder if it is me or is everyone mumbling? Everything was explained to high school science teacher's and engineering husband's levels, so I really know what is happening with my hearing. Nice to be able to hear sounds I didn't know I missed and to have choices in how to correct this loss. I was made to feel comfortable at every step (and not old, like I was concerned). ”
