Humanizing Hearing Aid Providers, Step By Step
I have been a patient of Mutter’s Hearing Center for about a decade
now. I wouldn’t trust my hearing needs to anyone but Joe Mutter.
Before I came to Mutter’s I had owned several different hearing
aids from other places but they never seemed to work for me. I was
beginning to think it was a lost cause, until I found Mutter’s.
From my very first appointment I knew Joe was the answer to my
problems. He was able to fit me with hearing aids at my first meeting
with him and I instantly heard better than I had in a very long time.
My lifestyle with work and family is pretty hectic; Joe was able to
make my hearing aids work for me. My quality of life at work and
play has been greatly improved by Joe and his skill set with hearing
aids. Joe works with you step by step to make your quality of life the
best it can possibly be. He truly cares about you and your hearing. Mr. William Grant & Joe Mutter
His superior service and product have helped me tremendously.
I have moved about 2 hours away but I still come back for Joe to
service and adjust my hearing aids, he’s just that good!
