“My specialist was Jennifer. I was getting an upgrade to some new hearing aids and I found her to be extremely skilled in testing and ordering and helping me decide what I needed. I highly recommend her for your hearing needs. Thank you.”

“Dr. Luffler gave me all the time and attention I needed. She went over the options available to me very thoroughly, explained the process involved in acquiring and using a hearing aid in detail, and answered all my questions. I look forward to working with her in the future.”

“These people and particularly Dr. Crockett are audiologists who you can trust as in medical so, and it is of special importance, in financial matters. I was greatly impressed when Dr. Crockett advised and directed me how to spend less money while improving my hearing with the very advanced aids when other audiologists did just the opposite and, as I felt, were interested primarily in getting my money. You will find at this place very friendly and very knowledgeable people who will help you to get the very best and most advanced of the Hearing Aid medicine.”
