“As a health care professional who was reluctant to evaluation and intervention, I was extraordinarily surprised ! I worked with Sheri who was knowledgeable and supportive. The evaluation was easy. Purchasing and using the prescribed hearing aides was one of the best health care measures I have taken. While I expected using them would be difficult and painful, that was not the case. I utilize them on a daily basis which has made a significant positive difference in my life. I am grateful to Sheri for helping me realize my full hearing potential.”
“Very professional and great service. I’ve been going here fir many years wouldn’t go anywhere else . ”
“Such helpful and knowledgeable pros here, thorough during every appointment. My first pair of hearing aids and I'm pleased with the type they recommended for me. ”
“Lauren has been our (my wife’s and my) audiologist for the past two years. She selected the best hearing aids for each of us, and her follow-up has been fantastic. She has made sure that we are happy with our heating aids and that their programming is exactly what each of us needs. Thank you, Lauren!”
