“I live a good distance away from Advanced Audiology and am happy to make the trek in. Last Fall my original hearing aids began acting up. I researched three other hearing centers closer to home, to get fitted for new hearing aids, took tests at two of the centers and even used the new hearing devices they prescribed for me on a trial basis. None of them measured up. I do not believe their tests led to as accurate a prescription as I have consistently received at Advance Audiology, and the devices, which were just as expensive, turned out to be inferior. They squeaked, gave high-pitched feedback, or ran out of power, and I still had hours of teaching to do. In the meantime, I had an appointment with my hearing specialist at Advanced, and was retested. In short, they replaced my used devices at no charge because they took the time to review my insurance. It was like coming home again. The replacements and my new prescription vastly outperformed the brand new, trial-pairs at the two other centers I visited. What's more is that the office personel, the office culture, and my hearing specialist at Advanced (Ginny Newman) are in a league all their own. They manage to strike a beautiful balance between professionalism and personal attention that is not easy to find and my wife and I know that I will be given the best care possible when I arrive. Landing in their office for the first time (by chance) in 2008 was life-changing for me. I now see the drive in a whole new context. Thank you Advanced Audiology and thank you, Ginny Newman! ”
“United HealthCare is our new insurance carrier and Nola Aronson's Advanced Audiology was the referral practice. We couldn't have picked a better audiology practice as their concern to my well being and attention was exemplary. Mary Porath, our audiologist, made us feel like family as all of our concerns were answered. Mary helped me choose the best hearing aids that fit our budget and it definitely improved my hearing. Her attentiveness was above and beyond what I was expecting and would recommend her services.”
“So thankful for Dr. Nola and staff. I hadn't realized all I was missing before their help. Recently my aids weren't working properly, but because of Covid19 I thought there wasn't anything I could do. I received an informative email from their office giving me advise as to how to get help at this time. I followed the instructions given to me by one of the staff and was able to fix my aids! She was so patient and kind. Had it not worked, there were other options available. Thank You Advanced Audiology!!”
“Nola Aronson was recommended to me by two people who do not know each other and are patients at Advanced. I then researched my health care provider’s contracted audiology service provider. The reviews, while not particularly bad or negative, did not seem to be as enthusiastically positive towards received service and/or devices or their overall satisfaction. I also researched hearing aid types and brands but concluded that the selection would be best left to the audiologist, not me. So, I put my trust in Nola and have absolutely no regrets. This clinic is top notch and you will be hard pressed to find any better. No hard sell/up sell. She gave me the hearing test, explained the results regarding my type of hearing loss and recommended a pair of Starkey Livio 2400s as best for my hearing needs. Nola also took the time realizing that since I am footing the bill (not an insurance or healthcare provider), and explained the various price points, features, and what each would/would not offer. She then reviewed the 45 day trial period (full refund if not satisfied). She showed me how to clean and care for the hearing aids, how to put them in/remove them from my ears, and how to use the control settings (mine are also controlled from an app on my iPhone). Advanced Audiology has a pleasant waiting room, vehicle parking area, and a clean safe facility. From the time I walked into the clinic until I left I was treated very well on every visit by health care professionals who really do care. Like the two gents who recommended Nola to me, I can’t say enough good about Advanced Audiology.”
“I needed a good baseline hearing test, as I hadn't had one since high school, and was so impressed with Nola and her entire staff. They were all very friendly and I immediately felt at ease. Nola was very knowledgeable and explained my results in detail. I would highly recommend Advanced Audiology to everyone.”
