“Dr. Guerreiro was very professional and kid friendly , he took time with us to make my 16 month old daughter feel comfortable. He also took time to explain exactly what the results were of the hearing test after he was done. I highly recommend this doctor ! Staff was also very friendly as well. ”

“I can't thank they audiologist enough for their time and consideration..My child was identified with hearing loss which resulted in very poor speech... people in palm beach county said he was fine... HE WASN'T... they fit my some with hearing aids and now his speech is amazing and getting straight A's ... he was moved to gifted at binks elementary and now is at Landings in the advanced classes.. The person who complained about the insurance and threw UM under the bus... please realize that I too have insurnace and was limited to what they paid... I paid the difference and would pay anything for my child to hear and be normal,!!! shame on you”

“Extremely disappointed. We took our 3 years old son to the hearing institute to get evaluated and get hearing aids. During the appt set up, UM said our insurance was accepted and hearing aids were covered. On the day of the appt, they insisted we had to self -pay and then submit bill to our insurance company for reimbursement. After two weeks of phone calls to my insurance and to UM, they agreed to accept the contracted amount through Bcbs and UM. Please be careful if they tell you to self-pay. Insist and don't give up as they are all about $. It's upsetting me to know that other children may be going without hearin aids because UM didn't want to accept the contracted amount as they told me its nowhere near what they pay for hearing aids. ”
