From Our Clients
“After seeing a couple of audiologists and having some horrible experiences of hearing aids that hurt so bad I was brought to tears or aids that fell into my dinner plate I went to Dr. Wong. WOW, just WOW. His easy going nature, understanding personality and great sense of humor put me at ease. In no time he fit me with a solid solution that fit right and opened a whole new world for me to hear what I’d been missing. Do yourself a favor, get an appointment and see what you’ve been missing. Don’t let yourself turn into a number at big practice, a large health organization or some hearing test booth at a wholesale club. Get the personal touch from a caring professional. You won’t be sorry!”
