This is my story and I am sticking to it! I had been having some challenges with my hearing before the pandemic. These challenges only worsened once we started wearing masks and social distancing. I reluctantly went and had my hearing tested at a medical clinic that I was referred to by my general physician. Once the test was over we chatted briefly, I was given some brochures and a price range for hearing aids was told if I had any questions to give them a call. So here I was with little understanding of what hearing loss really was and not much information about hearing aids and I was tasked with making a decision that could drastically affect the quality of my life! As I was lamenting about this to a coworker they told me about Countryside Hearing Aid Services. They could not speak highly enough about Tom and Jennifer. They kept using words like amazing, outstanding, awesome.
The hitch in all of this is that they are an hour drive from where I live and there is no easy (low traffic) way to get there.
I made the appointment, then made the drive, and it was one of the BEST decisions of my life! Tom and Jennifer truly are amazing, outstanding, awesome and so much more 🙂 Not only did I learn about hearing loss and the effects it can have on not only the individual (me) but also family and friends, I also learned about hearing aids . Tom took the time to talk with me about what my life was like, work and activities, then explained the 3 choices in hearing aids and how each one would work in my everyday life. What I thought was going to be a major life challenge was made much easier, almost simple, by going to Countryside hearing Aid Services and working with Tom.
They are now my go folks for all my hearing needs. I am more than willing to drive an hour to get the personalized care and professional service. Tom has built a custom setting for me for outdoor usage and windy conditions! I am also armed with knowledge about different devices I may want to consider down the road for watching television, etc…
From the moment you walk in the door you are welcomed and and made to feel at ease. Tom and Jennifer are that rare type that are very professional and knowledgeable, yet so very personable. Countryside Hearing Aid Services has so much to offer to keep hearing loss from becoming a lonely, isolated journey. I am truly blessed to have found them and now promote them, shamelessly, every chance I get! They really are AWESOME!
