“Dr. Lori Boyd and team are amazing! From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted like they have known you forever! Dr. Boyd was so attentive and understanding and really helped me understand the best route for my hearing needs. Samantha went above and beyond to get me the right financing that would work with my budget. This team made my hearing dream come true and I would recommend them 1,000 times over. ”
“I will never forget when I got my hearing aids. I was in my 30’s and very upset about having to wear hearing aids!!! I cried when Dr Linton was explaining just how bad my hearing loss was, and the fact that I would have the “stigma” of wearing hearing aids! I felt like people would be staring at me. Boy was I wrong!!! No one even knows I’m wearing them!!!! The day I got them, I walked outside and literally started crying because I could hear the leaves, birds, traffic...I had no idea how much I was missing out on. It made a HUGE difference in my quality of life. I called my younger sister as soon as I got in the car and told her how amazing it was to hear, and she got her hearing aids 2 weeks later!!! I’ve had several pair now and Dr Linton and her staff are every bit as kind, friendly and helpful as they were the first day I met them. It also saves so much money by receiving batteries for life!!! I honestly cannot say enough great things about this office and this group of people!!! These people really do care!!!”
“Dr Lori Boyd was very professional, skilled, empathetic. Facility, equipment modern, up to date. Staff prompt, helpful. Would highly recommend. Having referred patients to them for over thirty years, as a physician, I now got to experience why I did, and got to see first hand why I did.”
“Staff professional, knowledgeable, patient, and very friendly. They took their time explaining the hearing aids and their use. I highly recommend them!!”
“Dr. Boyd did an excellent job of fitting and programming my hearing devices. I can hear the cicadas for the first time in five years. I recommend Dr. Boyd and the whole staff. The office is as clean as a whistle. The staff is very friendly and nice. ”
