I am always a little apprehensive when going to a doctor, especially a new one. But the staff at Hearing Solutions, Inc. made me feel welcome the minute I walked in the door. I was quickly shown back to Dr. Parker. She was excellent: open, honest, and told it like it is. She made me feel comfortable for the hearing test, and gave me all the information I needed to make an informed decision on my hearing aids. As I told her “I am actually excited about the hearing aids that I am going to be getting.” I never thought I would say that, but it’s true. Can’t recommend this great team enough.
I am very grateful for Barbara Parker and the tremendous knowledge she has when it comes to issues related to hearing loss and it’s affects on the brain. I learned so much, and have been given hope & encouragement through the hearing solutions offered. Dr. Parker is very kind, patient, and helpful, and I felt genuinely cared for and valued as a patient. I can’t wait to receive my hearing aids so that I will not have to miss out another minute of life going on all around me.
