WORDS From members
"I want to let you know about my positive experience with the Hearing Instrument Plan through Hear in America. With the expert assistance of the Hear in America counselor, I was put in contact with the closest hearing professional to me. It was smooth guidance through the entire process with the professional counsel of these two persons. It's a whole new hearing world in all aspects of my life, especially as I interact with my spouse, immediate family, groups of all types and sizes, cultural events, daily happenings in my life, and yes, even the simple everyday sounds that have returned to be a part of my daily hearing world. Its seems to me that the Association has had a visionary outlook in providing hearing benefits for our group. Indeed, I am delighted!"
"I have found my hearing specialist to be a fine gentleman and very professional in trade and appearance. He is truly great to work with. I will recommend that office to anyone that is shopping for hearing aids. My hearing aids are very comfortable to wear and I am happy to report that my head is out of the barrel, when it comes to sound-especially my own voice. WOW, what an improvement. They are working very well. I appreciate your professionalism and skills. Thanks for your help in improving my hearing."
