“I am a health care professional who experienced sudden hearing loss. My career would have been over if not for the compassionate, knowledgeable, and supportive staff at Island Better Hearing. Dr. Tracy Lynch has been there for me in emergencies, and has been sensitive to my professional needs in a way I have never experienced before from a health care provider. She has advocated for me in arranging urgent visits with physicians and is immediately available when a hearing aid malfunctions. Dr. Lynch is exceptional in both her knowledge and her dedication to her patients.”
