“Dr. Courtney Thayer, Is very professional, personable and caring. Courtney was persistent in checking my current hearing aids, so that adjustments &/or issues could be addressed if necessary. I strongly recommend Dr. Thayer (Merit Hearing) for all your hearing needs &/or questions.”

“Dr. Keiner is not only remarkable in his industry but quite possibly, unique. He has set up a business model that reflects his personal commitment to GENUINELY serving the needs of his patients. As a consequence of his priorities his several locations and associates provide the best possible care and service, access to the very best technologies and do both using a client-sensitive financial model that is a glaring contrast to the excessive markups of the manufacturers and audiologists one finds elsewhere.”
