“I have being a patient with them since 2007, including major purchases and services of 2 different expensive Hearing Aids. Always helpful, knowledgeable, attentive AND extremely professional. In the most recent visit, I*d like to mention by name audiology professional Silvia Rivera, who has spent time with us doing adjustments and programming on the brand new Widex device, displaying patient and caring attitude in the old tradition of visiting doctors. BRAVO! ”

“I have been dealing with hearing problems for the past 20 years. I have seen audiologists from Brockville Canada to Watertown NY to Bradenton, Florida. Not all were as great as Dr. Gary Rodriquez and his wonderful staff, but they all tried, no one had the skill or the knowledge possessed by Dr. Gary and his associates. He provides a thorough exam, a knowledgeable recommendation and a superb follow-up. The care and concern offered to the patient here is excellent. I can not thank Dr. Rodriquez enough for the wonderful improvement in my hearing. The man and his organization deserve all the praise and thanks that they receive. They certainly deserve my thanks and praise. Superb choice for any one.”

“I have been coming here for 5-6 years and when I retired I could finally afford my hearing aids which was God's blessing. His next biggest blessing was Dr. Rodriguez. When he put my aids in I cried because I could hear for the first time in 10 years! They all are so kind and helpful and take great care of my aids and I can call anytime I have a any problems which they solve! My last visit was with Dr. Rodriguez and I had a hearing test then he set my aids. I could hear better than I had in a year or so! I really enjoy going to the office! I am so thankful for the Dr. and will always be thankful for them. ”

“All I got from Manatee heaearing and the associated Doctor was tests and numerous bills. No real diagnosis to my problem or help. Had to go to another hearing healthcare provider in Tampa for proper assistance. ”
