“I've tried many places and what impressed me about Wilks is their years of experience. When dealing with setting up and adjusting hearing aids this is very important. One of the best experiences. They're friendly and very helpful. They answered all my questions and concerns. A+ on customer service.”

“ I have been with Wilks Hearing for the past THIRTY-FIVE+years. I have gone through many hearing aids in this span of time. Dr Wilks and now Dr Carlson have been extremely helpful, knowledgeable and kind. I have just been fitted with an updated, sophisticated pair of Oticons . Dr Carlson said that this new technology is worth a try. How right she is! I can now hear subtle nuances in music which have been gone for many years. Thank you for your loving care.”
