"My hearing aids were not functioning properly and I went to see if they could be repaired. Dr. Bolder just happened to be available and immediately took them and checked them out. Within minutes he returned with them functioning again. On top of that he gave me a package of replacement ear piece tips. First class treatment (even though I didn’t buy my hearing aids there), kindness, consideration, in short, everything you could possibly ask of a business. I will definitely come here when I replace my old hearing aids. Thank you so much!"

"I saw Dr. Kevin Bolder on my visit for my yearly hearing test, results: I was in need of hearing aids. I have got to say it was a great experience! After my test, Dr. Bolder program a sample hearing aid for me to see what I was missing.OMG I couldn't believe it, I sat there and cried. For the first time in my life I was hearing sound I have never heard before. Have to say the Dr. and staff were so pleasant and really genuine. It was the best money I have ever spent in my life!! I have had them now for the last month and I don't want to start my day without them. I will recommend them to anyone in need.Thanks again :)"

"I was a bit nervous because an abrupt, loud noise in close proximity to me caused me to have ringing in my ear and reverberation when I speak. Dr. Patrice Rifkind is the best! She fit me in at the end of her very busy work day to do a full hearing test. She explained what she was doing throughout the process and showed me how different parts of our ears can be affected, gave me recommendations on how to care for my ears with earplugs and, most importantly, she put me at ease. She and everyone in her beautiful practice are friendly and professional. I definitely recommend Dr. Rifkind and Audiology Associates!"

"I was sick and tired of my husbands hearing issues and it put a great strain on our relationship. The VA gave him a worthless hearing aid that amplified his good ear and he hated it. My husband asked the VA Doctor for the cross over unit and the doctor told him it would confuse him. Finally he asked his advisor to get him a real Audiology doctor. He went and had a hearing test again for the 50th time from Dr. Patrice Rifkind and I went with him to pick up his hearing aid. Patrice and the whole crew are relationship savors! My husband is hearing things like never before! Thank you and I will tell you all do not shop go there first!"
