“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.”

“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!”
