Kimberly was very caring and professional. She conducted an audiologic exam and recommended an ENT consult. She was very informative. The office staff were also extremely helpful. Would recommend this office!!
I only wish I had visited Hearing and Balance and Dr. Darrow years ago. My first visit yesterday was unlike visiting audiologists in the old days. New tests, visual real time displays of ear performance, explanations of the interdependence of hearing and brain function. Kim, the audiology fellow, was extremely pleasant and patient, as well as informative. Finally, I got the newest iteration of miniaturized, noise-cancelling Oticon hearing aids (my first ever), and they are an easy fit and unobtrusive. I hardly know I have them on. Bonus: they're iPhone enabled and they stream bluetooth (if you fellow geezers like) right through your hearing aids, which is very cool. Most of all, they are natural sounding, not like your parents' clunky hearing aids. For me, they don't make everything louder; they just make sounds clearer and more understandable. I am already comfortable with them, and in subsequent visits Dr. Darrow will tweak them to be even more attuned to my requirements. Baby steps, I understand, but they already are a huge improvement.
Very pleasant staff, timely appointment, very thorough testing, clean and modern facility. They took the time to answer all my questions. I would rated them 5 stars if not for the cost of the hearing aid offered to me which was way above my expectation of value and justification for my needs
Couldn't have asked for more. Really impressed with how everything went from the time I arrived until I left. Wasn't rushed and always felt they had my best interest in getting me the best to help with my hearing loss.
I heard Dr. Darrow talk about hearing aids on our local radio station. He had great news about new hearing aid technology. He was offering a hearing test and a free trial period using the new Oticon hearing aids. I took him up on his offer. I wasn't disappointed. There was a dramatic difference in the old hearing aids from the Veterans Administration, and the new ones from Dr. Darrow. I was sold on their product. Dr. Darrow and his office staff are true professionals on treating hearing loss.
