Thank you for your assistance. From the moment I came in the door and was greeted warmly by the person at the window and later she asked me if I needed anything while I was waiting, left me with a very warm feeling of being welcome. Your assistance and attention to detail adding in things I did not even think of has also enriched the experience. Your warmth was very comforting in this world today. I am looking forward to attending your events as time permits.

I do want you to know the hearing device (he) wears that you supplied has made a huge difference in his quality of life. It’s usually his go-to when we go out. Sincerely appreciate all the help you provided. Stay safe and healthy.

You relay the information clearly and several times so we that are slower in learning this can pick it up. You also have us repeat learned words over and over to help us remember the words or phrases. It’s also very effective in practicing with another person. Thanks for all your knowledge.

Wow! That is really good information to have. I called the audiologist as you suggested. They said he would be covered for hearing aids so I’m excited about that. Thank you for reaching out and bringing all of this to the forefront as I don’t know when I would have looked at it all again. I’m just happy that my son will finally be able to hear. Thank you again!!!
