“I was recommended to the Family Hearing and Balance center due to my severe tinnitus and to learn how to deal and live with it. I was skeptical at first and was ready to walk if I felt this was just quackery, luckily it wasn’t and now I’m extremely happy that I came. I found Dr. Reikowski very knowledgeable as he proceeded with the initial meeting, he was also caring and receptive to my problem. The path we’ve moved forward with for helping me cope with this problem is just in its infancy but I feel if does offer me the best chance of living a normal life. I would recommend that if you have any hearing problems that you set an appointment and see for yourself.”

“Dr. Reikowski is truly a dedicated professional. A high quality individual who really cares about the patient. I feel like I could not have selected a better practice to go to for my hearing concerns. After a complete examination of my hearing he took the time to completely answer my questions and concerns. I feel very confident and comfortable with the hearing aids I acquired. I feel that it was a very much needed and valuable investment. I highly recommend Dr. Reikowski and his staff. They will take exceptional care of your hearing needs.”

“I am 72 years old and I have been wearing hearing aids for 32 years. In that time I have been involved with several different hearing doctors. I’ve been with Family hearing for more than 10 years. Dr. Amy has bent over backward to help me achieve the best hearing ability that I can have. She is kind, considerate and smart! The entire office staff are helpful and friendly. Jen, Mary and everyone who works there have been nothing but helpful!”
