“I have dealt with many audiologists in CT, NYC and NJ over my 28 years of wearing hearing aids. There is not a more caring professional and individual there Dr Wallberg. She is tops in the industry and I wouldn't walk BUT run to Dr Wallberg if you need her help. She is the most special person and will always be thankful I was referred to her. ”
