Customer Reviews

Dr. Linka and her staff are fabulous! Doctor takes all the time needed to explain the details of the tests and the fittings. She is very knowledgeable and professional. I have very narrow ear canals and ultimately had to have the ear piece’s specially fitted. Doc would get me in on short notice whenever I had questions or need adjustments and after a few weeks, I can say my hearing aids fit like a glove. Stacey and Cheryl treat me like family and always make me feel welcome. I highly recommend them!

Caring professionals that explain problems in easy to understand language. Honest evaluations and they don’t try to sell you something you don’t need.


The service provided was very professional. The use of my hearing aids was thoroughly explained. I also felt comfortable that any questions or concerns would be promptly addressed.
