“My general rating of below average is because of the the various receptionist personnel. Appointment making is never easy or smooth. I have had people answer the phone with just "hello" so I did not know if I had the Hear Center. Argument about whether I could make another appointment after being told I missed an appointment. After stating that I wanted to make an appointment with a specific audiologist, put on hold and then being transferred to the general recorded message that goes through all of the information of days open, hours and then running through extension numbers for the various departments or person that you might want to talk to. The recording says to touch the extension you want but it does not allow the system to place the call until the entire list of extensions has been gone through. Debbie the general office manager has always been efficient and Joanna Navarro is an excellent audiologist and has give me excellent service. In fact I followed her to the Hear Center from the American Hearing and Balance Center because she has given me excellent service.”
