Local Clinic Testimonials

I knew immediately that she cared about me…

More than 8 years ago, I was dealing with hearing loss that was clearly getting worse with time. I went to a storefront hearing center and they prescribed a “canal” type hearing aid. I wore those devices for less than 2 weeks and realized they did NOT work. So I learned to read lips and “made do” for a while. But that was really frustrating. My family continually pointed out that my hearing was becoming a big issue for them and me. I knew I needed to do something about it.

Bottom line, I worked through HearingPlanet, found a clinic near my home, and met Dr. Marifran Ramaglia. She has been such a blessing in my life.

I knew right away she cared about “me," not about selling a product. She took all the time in the world for me. She treats me as an individual and listens to what the issues are. She helped me determine the best product for my needs and did not just try to sell me the most expensive hearing aid. Instead she allowed me to choose for myself, based on the features that would best fit my lifestyle.

When I learned that HearingPlanet allows for a 45-day test period I was really happy. Because based on my previous experience with hearing aids from the other company that did not work, I was worried about that. The HearingPlanet guarantee meant that if they didn’t fit, weren’t comfortable, or didn’t help me hear in all situations, I could return them and try another style or brand. Oh, and the payment options are amazingly generous.

The time and effort she spent with me even after receiving the hearing aids was important because they needed adjustment for my hearing needs. She never rushed me, and her patient nature was an example of how she truly cares. She absolutely wanted to help me have a healthy attitude towards wearing these hearing aids and have a better quality of life.

Thank you, Dr. Ramaglia, for all you have done for me in changing my hearing and quality of life. And thanks for HearingPlanet for guiding me to the right doctor.

I recently heard birds chattering in the tree about sixty yards away…

My local audiologist is Todd Brazil. He did my hearing test and "installed" my new ears, and I can hear now, which is both a joy and a relief. Todd is a terrific young man. He is a first-class representative for HearingPlanet and Phonak products.

I have had one follow-up visit with Todd since getting my new Phonaks, and Todd made some significant changes that really have tuned my Phonaks to my specific type of hearing loss. I recently heard birds chattering in a tree about sixty yards away—the first time in many, many years. Wow!
