“Always pleasant, professional, informative. Lori Boyd knows my ears better than ENT/PCP - I've had multiple skin issues as well as dislocated bil tmj, tinnitus. She gave all info to mold lab and these are the best molds ever. Allergic to my old molds! These are also extra long which helps with infection and better air flow. Her recommendation on type of hearing was perfect! I recommend her to everyone! ”
