“I was extremely impressed with Dr. Gonzalex if only because of the battery of tests he did to which I have NEVER been subjected and I am now 72 years old. Those tests included adding "background noise" to see how that impacted my ability both to ear different tones and frequencies and understand spoken words (BTW I scored perfect on the latter), and also by placing the testing equipment outside of my ears, as we hear as much by the vibration of sounds not just in our ear but the bones of and in our skulls--so we tend not to recognize recordings of our own voice as being our voice! I was also in his office considerably longer than I had expected., which also speaks to his thoroughness! A main reason I set this appointment was a prior exam at a different site where I was told I needed to have an MRI done to determine the cause before I could be prescribed hearing aids, and my out of pocket expense just for that test would have been more than I was comfortable spending only to be told, perhaps, that I don't need any hearing aid or there was none that could help me. Dr. Gonzalez said such tests are usually done to be "safe" about the cause(s) of any hearing loss and likely progression, but he also said my loss was slight enough that the basic model would be perfect for my needs. He then took time to go over my payment options, and while the one I chose has a larger up-front cost, by far it has the lowest long-term costs, thus was the best value in my opinion given my health is such that I can expect to outlive the hearing aid rather than the other way around! I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Gonzalez to anyone who is facing the prospects of needing hearing aids.”
