“I have been a patient of Dr. Leslie Gant for several years. In this day of multitudes of advertisements for hearing devices everywhere you turn, it is comforting to have someone like Dr. Gant and Mountain Ear to advise and guide in the selection of hearing aids. Dr. Gant is a highly educated and trained audiologist with many years of experience in helping her patients find the right solution to hearing loss by testing, advising and providing hearing aids for her patients. Her warm, caring personality immediately puts you at ease. I highly recommend her and Mountain Ear to anyone needing assistance with hearing difficulties.”

“I found Dr. Leslie Gant to be an obvious gifted, skilled, experienced, friendly, honest, and caring professional. From the original exam, to the follow up, I was treated respectfully, not pressured. Her approach was about what I needed at my measured levels of hearing ability. The optional plan where I was able to try out her recommended model gave me time to evaluate and decide. The promise of frequent follow ups gave me confidence for future satisfaction. I could not have expected more. I highly recommend Mountain Ear Hearing Associates in Waynesville.”

“Such great care, as well as knowledge about hearing loss and help for it! I met Dr. Leslie Gant a dozen years or so ago by taking two different friends to her for hearing aids. They both spoke highly of her so that when I needed a hearing evaluation, Dr. Gant was my choice of doctors to see. She takes time with you, listens to you and works with you to get better hearing. Going to Mountain Ear in Waynesville for hearing assistance has been very beneficial.”
