“Dr Gant has been my audiologist for the past five years. She has continuously provided me with honest information, excellent hearing testing and sound advice regarding hearing aid products and service. In the often confusing world of hearing aid information and products, Dr. Gant has been the one audiologist I can trust. I currently travel from my home in Maggie Valley to Candler - a 45 minute travel time each way - to see her because she is definitely worth the drive. And Cindy, her assistant, is always super-helpful, too. ”
