“I found the center from my wifes visit at an expo. I went there and spoke with Dr Milner, he took the time to understand my issues and concerns, then gave me some test and found a set of aids that not only were affordable but gave me more options than other aids Ive tried and have been performing well for over a year now. The staff is awesome, friendly and fun! They stay attentive and always make sure i have a great experience with my hearing aids. Thank you for opening a new world too me that Ive not heard yet!”

“I love my new hearing aids. They have enriched my life more than I thought they would. Dr. Judy Nickols was great throughout the process. The hearing test, choosing hearing aids, and then adjusting and fitting them for my needs. The rest of the staff was just as helpful. Don't put this off any longer! you will be presently surprised at how much you are missing. Forget the stigma. These small. ”
