“I ( Retired FDNY) just had a great shopping experience . I was in the market for a Hearing Aid. I shopped around and found Wilks Hearing Center. I made an appointment and was very happy I did. Dr Kafka was very professional and very informative. All in one visit I was tested, advised and walked out with a great pair of Hearing Aids. I Highly recommend Wilks Hearing Center.”

“We have been using Wilks Hearing Center for many years. They are caring, trustworthy and very professional. Dr. Carlson is tops in her field and knows what is best for each patient. Whether it's a child, an adult or a senior citizen she is the go to person. Peggy, at the front desk, always has a smile on her face and greets each everyone with a warm and friendly hello. And Barbara greets everyone as though she’s their best friend. I feel like I’m with family when I have an appointment. We wouldn't go anywhere else!!”
