"We were recommended to visit Labyrinth Audiology by ReSound, a hearing aid manufacturer. From the moment we first called and spoke with a very friendly Stephanie, we were introduced to a very professional clinic.
We met with Peter, the Intern Audiologist, who gave us all the time necessary to work out our questions, concerns and a far more efficient way to use our ReSound aids. We had a very pleasant experience and a good feeling about going back, when necessary."

"It is now one month since you helped me get acquainted with my Siemens Hearing Aid. You explained, adjusted, and reassured me that it is hardly detectable, a concern that was very important to me. I must admit that I was sure this was not going to work for me.
A few days later, when leaving my house with a friend, I stopped and asked, 'What’s that noise?'
'What noise?' she asked
'That!' I said
'It’s the birds chirping in the tree!' she responded.
I couldn’t believe how long it had been since I HEARD that sound. It brought tears to my eyes.
Since that day, there have been so many other incidents when I hear a sound that I haven’t heard in a very long time. It’s almost like a miracle for me. I also feel much more confident when with a group of people and in a restaurant.
Thank you very much for your patience and help. My hearing aid has really been a wonderful help to me."

"After a couple of years of denial, I decided to treat myself to hearing the diminishing sounds around me with the help of Dr. Danesh. I was impressed how comfortable and nice it was to hear 'EVERYTHING.' I joke with my friends that the aids are so good that I can hear what they are thinking!"
~ Janet M.
"My experience with five pairs of hearing aids from other audiologists was awful. I never had a good fit, the one hearing aid would always fall off. The buzzing in my ear was annoying, and with the hearing aid I still couldn’t hear right. I always had to say 'excuse me, what did you say?' In restaurants I couldn’t hear the conversation, it was a nightmare until I met Dr. Danesh. He was referred to me by my ENT. It was a marvelous experience. Dr. Danesh and his staff are very patient, understanding, and very compassionate. Dr. Danesh evaluated my hearing and fitted me with new hearing aids. I finally I don’t have the buzzing in my ear. I can follow a conversation and my quality of life is better. Thank you, Labyrinth Audiology, you are my angels."
