"Thank you to Dr. Bolder for his time, patience and expertise in helping my husband with his hearing aids. This was a check-in after a year of having his hearing aids, and Dr. Bolder treated him like a king. There were some issues going on inside his ear and Dr. Bolder spent so much time resolving the issue, with warmth and a sense of humor. He explained each procedure, from the results of the hearing test to the adjustment of the hearing aids. We felt like we were his only patients when the office was busy. Just a wonderful experience with a wonderful Audiologist and we are very appreciative."

"I can't say enough about the professional service I have received from Audiology Associates over the last seven years. My hearing aids started to fail just prior to the close of escrow on my house. I'm in the process of relocating out of state. This was a case of time is of the essence. All the folks at Audiology Associates working together were able to not only get an appointment scheduled through the insurance company but were able to have a new set of hearing aids approved along with a long over due hearing test. Additionally the third party that is to provide my batteries, filters and other consumables was having trouble providing those items and again Audiology Associates to the rescue was able to coordinate with them to get that part resolved also. This latest episode is not a fluke, as I stated earlier I've been dealing with them for seven years now, I've never been disappointed with the service they provide. The good news is I'm leaving California, the bad news I can't take Audiology Associates with me!! I will be about twenty hours away and am considering making the drive periodically just to keep dealing with them. You might be able to find as good a service but you will not find better! If you are the type of person that wants to deal with the best these are the people for you!"

"When it comes to hearing, there is initially a concern since we are not doctors and are unable to diagnose our hearing issue(s). I was fortunate to have been assigned as a patient to Dr. Kevin Bolder, one of the doctors at Audiology Associates. The experience was great and his communication skills in explaining what he was about to do, why he was doing what he was doing, and the findings/results were truly a five star experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Bolder. (Thank you, Dr. Bolder! I will be referring folks to you!) "

Dr. Davis listened patiently and respectfully to our concerns and provided clear explanations for his recommendations. We appreciated his competent care. And the office staff was very friendly and accommodating. We are so glad we were referred to Audiology Associates."

"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!"
