“When I finally made the decision to do something about my hearing loss two different friends recommended Christa at Upstate. Rene set up my appointment and sent me some paperwork to complete before my visit. When I arrived, she made me feel right at home while I waited. During my initial meeting with Christa, she instantly put me at ease. She did a complete hearing exam and test and then we talked about options. Her suggestion was to try hearing aids to see what I thought, no pressure. Well, I fell in love with the ability to hear clearly and her! She is very accommodating, warm and friendly. Yes, I highly recommend the team of Christa and Rene at Upstate.”
