“I liked Christa (+ Rene) as soon as we started talking and working on my issues. Christa got what I was saying about my other hearing aids. Also, she got it that hearing aids can be adjusted to the situation, that really had me sold. Thank you. ”

“This was my 1st time actually realizing that I needed hearing aids and was apprehensive. Christa was so professional yet warm and gracious as she conducted my hearing evaluation and consultation afterwards. She set my fears aside. I recently received my bilateral aids and could not be more happy and grateful for Christa's assistance and knowledge. ”
