My wife Maureen complained for months, possibly years about my lack of hearing. She accused me of not wanting to listen for the longest time then starting demanding I get hearing aids. I noticed difficulty hearing when in a group especially with background noise. So when Dr. Tim Smith invited me to be tested I decided to give it a try. He efficiently took me through the process of testing with a review of the result. He then offered me a trial set of hearing aids digitally fine-tuned for my hearing needs. What a hearing miracle. I began hearing sounds I had not noticed for years. The back of our house opens to a small canal; with the sliding doors open I could hear crickets and frogs that I had never heard from the day we moved into the house. I can now hear my own footsteps on the wood floors. I would turn the water on to fill the pool and forget to turn it off because I could not hear the water running. And here is the good and bad news but the most important result; I can hear everything my wife says. The hearing aids are comfortable and very seldom noticed. They are easy to maintain and so simple to use. I am delighted with the hearing aids.
