“He was very good, excellent. He did everything well, even though my husband kept saying "I don't need a hearing aid , I don't need a hearing aid !" He was very nice about it. He let me watch and sit right next to him while he was evaluating my husband. There's another room where they close the door and all, so I was there. I thought things went well. ”
