“My appt today was excellent. Thank you.”
“I love my hearing aids. The Staff in Worcester are very Courteous and Professional. It's always a pleasure to visit there and get my free batteries.”
“My visit with Tracy was very successful. On Sunday the day before the appointment, the dome on my hearing aid detached and was embeded in my right ear. At home several attempts to dislodge it only made the problem worse. Tracy accomplished the removal with patience, gentleness and determination. Gratefully, Patricia”
“Tracy did an excellent job with testing and explaining everything and allowing ample time for me to ask questions. I'm very pleased.”
“Tracy was very thorough in her examination and testing. She answered my questions and was it was very easy to talk with her. Dr. Darrow followed up the appointment with a discussion of my results and he addressed my concerns and explained everything in a way that I was able to understand without talking down to me as some doctors are prone to do.”
