“In over twenty years that I have been a patient of Island Better Hearing, Dr. Lori and her staff have provided caring support, kindness and understanding, along with state of the art hearing products that have been dispensed with personal attention to my individual hearing needs. I have recommended many people to this practice and continue to do so. Hearing loss is a very difficult and sensitive issue. To find Doctors of Audiology that truly care about the people who walk in their doors, is something rare.”

“Beginning 3 years ago when I first visited Island Better Hearing I have been impressed by their caring and response to my needs. During my initial visit, Dr. Tracey Lynch performed a thorough examination and fully evaluated my life style and then I was fitted with hearing aids that have improved my life. During follow-up visits and evaluations the high quality of personal care and support has continued. I recommend the services offered by Island Better Hearing to others. Each time I visit Island Better Hearing, I thank them for improving my quality of life and I tell them, "I Love My Hearing Aids". Thank you Island Better Hearing.”
