Testimonials

See what people are saying about Manatee Hearing & Speech Center

  • I have had my new AGX9 hearing aids for over a month now and I am writing this to let everyone know how I am doing. I no longer have to ask people to repeat what they are saying. I have been to meetings, parties, and concerts, and I can hear. The fact that I do not have to have my cell phone at my ear in order to hear a phone conversation is wonderful as it comes right into my hearing aids. It is quite the new technology that has my friends and family laughing. My daughter says I need to be careful as people will think I am talking to myself. Thank you for your time in fitting me with my "new technology" AGX9 hearing aids. Life is wonderful!
