“I have been a client of Dr. Kristy Unflat-Tilley at Community Hearing for three years. My care has been exceptional: visits every 4-6 months, regular evaluation of my hearing, computerized adjustment of my aids... Kristy is a delightful, caring professional. The hearing aid manufacturer, NUEAR, has also been excellent in their product support.”

“It has been a pleasure being connected with Community Hearing Services in Poughkeepsie. Being young at heart and older in chronological age, I found myself heading down a path that my Dad (age 95) and all his siblings had, called tinnitis. Though quite nervous regarding my diagnosis, management and cure being what I've read, I went into the office with much trepidation. However, after meeting Rachel, hearing her explanation of what was available to me, I felt quite comfortable, and that I was in the right place. I felt my care with Rachel was exceptional. Her professionalism, knowledge base, patience, an excellent teacher, and moreover, her CARING was exactly what I wanted and needed. I continue with my visits, presenting different questions and although I'm certain she's heard them all before, she continues with patience and explanation. She demonstrates how to control my hearing device and watches me as my clumsy fingers try to mimic what I just witnessed her do with skill and ease. It is a pleasure writing an evaluation of my experience at Community Hearing Service as I would readily recommend them to my family and friends. If you're like me, don't wait. What can't be cured, can be managed.”
