"It’s like opening up a new world. I feel like a teenager. I can hear again! My new hearing aids are easy to wear and clean. I like having volume control; when I’m watching T.V. I turn it down. The old devices have to go and I’ll be thrilled. It’s a miracle. Services are beyond words – From Dr. Rodriguez to Jaimie, to the front desk reminding me about my appointment."
