“Very informative. Anyone out there experiencing hearing loss needs to go listen to his symposium. It proves a definite link between untreated hearing loss and early dementia. The longer it goes untreated the more you increase your chances of early dementia.”

“It’s been a month since I first got my hearing aids. I am amazed at what a difference it has made in my life!! I don’t have to be embarrassed about talking to friends and family and misunderstanding a lot of their conversation. The staff is very professional and I never feel rushed at my appointments. They really care about giving you the time to ask any questions and have provided me with excellent hearing results. Dr. Darrow is so knowledgeable and I would recommend this treatment center to anyone. Attend one of his lectures if you’re on the fence and you’ll be happy with the results!”

“I am very satisfied with my tinnitus treatment program. Every staff member is extremely professional and my audiologist does an excellent job explaining the various options available to me. I am only two weeks into my treatment and there is already some improvement in my tinnitus that has plagued me for years. ”
