“My wife and I had appointments with Barbara Drobes. Myself for a hearing test and subsequent evaluation and my wife for an evaluation of her previous hearing test. Subsequently we both commented on how well we were both impressed with Barbara's professionalism, detailed explanation and analysis of the tests, willingness to answer any and all questions and our overall consultation. If ever asked we would certainly recommend their staff and facilities.”
“I would like to commend Dr. Scotch and audiologist Barbara for outstanding care and a professional attitude. I would recommend this team to all. The office staff is caring and his office is pleasantly clean and comfortable. Thank you all once again.”
