  • The personnel in the the front office are very courteous and friendly. They always have a smile on their faces. My audiologist Susan was very knowledgeable and explained my hearing issues to me and my spouse, which was very important to me. She gave me all options for my hearing aids. I've been seeing Susan for over 10 years for my hearing. I can't say enough about her. She's a good person to talk with and great at getting the info I need for my hearing. Overall just a pleasant business to go to.

What a change to hear conversations on the chair lift!!!
