“There are very few places that those with hearing loss, slight or extreme, can go to be gently served and educated. The world is not very understanding when it comes to what's perceived as an irritating weakness. Anyone at any time can have a sense lost or compromised, and the Center is a beacon in their field of Hearing and Communication. I've been greatly blessed by going there...a safe place for the hearing impaired. ”

“Very professional, kind and knowledgeable. She really helped me a lot and educated me. The audiologist answered all the questions no one ever gave me answers to. And all this was done with a smile. I am very glad I found the center and more than pleased. I am finally happy and trust this center with my hearing 100%.”
