...First Step in Bettering My Quality of Life!
While I’ve only had my hearing aids for a short time I can already say that I love The Lucero’s
them and Mutter’s Hearing Center! I previously had another set of hearing aids from
a different store, or what I like to call “hearing aid mill” (one of those chain stores
where you see those huge newspaper ads). You see, I’ve had hearing loss for years
and have been wearing hearing aids from many different places to try to help me
but, the service I received at the other places was well below what I expected, all
they did was keep turning up the volume in my hearing aids and tell me they couldn’t
do what I’d asked them to. So one day my husband and I saw an ad in the paper
for a hearing aid lunch and learn held by Mutter’s Hearing Center so we called and
scheduled reservations to go and from the moment I met Joe I knew he was the
one who would be able to help us. Not only does Joe provide excellent service;
his knowledge, understanding and integrity are unparalleled. Joe took the time to
educate my husband and I about our hearing loss and guide us through the process
of adjusting to being able to hear again. Hearing aids are not just amplification! You
can tell at Mutter’s Hearing Center they truly do care about you, they don’t just sell
you a product, they actually take the time to make sure you are satisfied with your
hearing aids and actually make you hear better! I can honestly say that visiting Joe
and Mutter’s Hearing Center was the first step to bettering my quality of life! My
husband and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my hearing needs!
