“Could not be happier with Dr. Hobson. She is a consumate professional, friendly, experiended and caring about giving me the best aids for my condition. Even allowed me a trial period for a couple of different style devices. An easy to find, convenient location. Try her, you'll like her.”

“Dr Hobson is absolutely an awesome person, she is very kind and concerned about your hearing. My first visit was a whole new world, I was deaf, she made me hear, something I haven't done for a long long time. She is a fantastic help if you're having a hearing problem. Highly recommend.”

“Sandra cares & understands her patients. She goes above & beyond to make sure you're happy & hearing properly. She's very polite & easy to talk to. When my hearing aid breaks down, she will make sure that you have some sort of loaner until it's fixed. She has a great staff who is willing to provide any services available, I consider her to be more than a great audiologist, but a great friend as well. She's simply amazing.”
