"Dr. Sally was wonderful! I appreciated her taking the time to make the necessary corrections on my hearing aids. Nice office and great staff!If you want a thorough compassionate considerate hearing exam look no further. From setting up the appointments, to the exam and all the way through acquiring hearing aids, Dr Sally and her staff were professional, friendly, and helpful. Dr Sally preformed most thorough exam, with details other doctors never went over and others didn't do/cover. The entire family from infant hearing checks, routine hearing exams and even in our family- special hearing cases - Dr Sally can do it all.Hi, my name is Rick Etherson. I am 77 years old. I have had a severe hearing problem since I was 5 years old. After many surgeries and trial and error hearing aids (with only fair results), I finally found Dr. Sally Baerman! She is an angel in this world of hearing professionals! Dr. Sally performed her magic through her technical skills and selected the perfect hearing device for me! For the first time in years my wife is not asking me to turn down the television; I hear conversatons with clarity. I can push one little button and hear phone calls on my cell phone (at a distance of at least 30 feet away) without even touching it! Now, this is magic.Call Dr. Sally Baerman today and let her perform her magic on your hearing. You will be happy you called. I promise.Rick EthersonMy doctor referred me to Bridgewater for a hearing test and hearing aids. I did NOT want to wear hearing aids. Dr. Baerman explained my hearing to me and fit me with Oticon hearing aids. I now can hear sounds I have not heard in years and can hear my grand daughters. She really took the time to help me understand hearing loss and how my hearing aids can help me. I would highly recommend Bridgewater to anyone who might need hearing aids!"

"The audiologist was great. Really friendly and answered all of my questions. She made sure I understood what was going on with my ears. I love the fact that I was able to try out some hearing aids and see what it was like. I also like that she didn't try to upsell me. I got exactly what I wanted at a good price. I also got a nice goodie bag with some filters batteries and some cups. Overall a great experience."

"I am enjoying better hearing, which has improved my quality of life.My audiologist, Dr. Tabitha Rossini at Bridgewater Balance and Hearing in Knoxville, TN, really knows her stuff. From my first visit to every subsequent one, Dr. Rossini has provided exceptional care, taking steps to ensure I am experiencing the best hearing possible. I highly recommend you make an appointment to see her if you are looking for an audiologist who is attentive to needs and endeavors to ensure patient satisfaction.I have moderate to severe hearing loss above 2000 Hz. Consequently, hearing in noisy environments is a challenge, and listening to music from my audio system was no longer enjoyable. Dr. Rossini fitted me with Phonak Marvel R90 hearing aids with cShell custom molds.Recently, Dr. Rossini recommended that I try the Phonak Roger Select iN (RS). She based her recommendation on a personal evaluation of the RS, and an appreciation of my needs. My work entails lots of meetings via computer video, phone, and challenging environments like noisy restaurants and large conference rooms. Dr. Rossini was right, and now I own the RS and prefer never to be without it. With RS, I do not have to work as hard to hear during video meetings or watching TV. What I didn't anticipate was how much RS would restore my enjoyment in listening to music. Most advertisements about RS focus on improved hearing in noisy environments; however, RS also improves hearing when listening to music. There are two options in using RS to enhance your music listening experience:Option 1 (recommended): Connect the RCA output of your preamp/receiver to the audio input of the RS docking station. You will need a cable that has left and right plugs on one end and a 3.5 mm plug for the docking station on the other end. Once connected, start your music. You will hear the music picked up by the hearing aids directly from the audio loudspeakers, as well as what RS is transmitting. The two signals are totally in sync with no latency. Now using the myPhonak App, adjust the mic/surrounding balance toward the left (surrounding) end of the range until the RS signal is not distinctly heard. For me, this is usually about halfway in the surrounding range. When the balance is right, you don't hear the RS unless you go to an adjacent room, and there it is heard, subtly adding its part to the experience. RS subtly adds those mid- and high frequencies I otherwise would not hear, resulting in more transparency, immediacy, air, and enjoyment.The combination of what the hearing aids pick up directly from the audio loudspeakers PLUS the signal transmitted by RS leads to a fuller, more extended, and vibrant sound (at least for me). I can hear the mid- and high frequencies better with RS. The music is more transparent and without distortion. Hearing aids alone cannot accomplish the same level of sound quality.Option 2: Use the RS microphones (instead of an audio cable) to transmit sound heard from the audio system, making the same adjustments mentioned in Option 1. While this will also result in a fuller, more vibrant sound, there may also be some distortion, probably due to the way RS processes some pure tones in music as noise. Activating only 1 or 2 of the RS microphones reduces the amount of noise processing and distortion.With either option, you need to adjust the balance so that the RS signal is not heard as a distinct, separate sound from what is heard directly from sound system loudspeakers. When the two signals integrate, you will only hear the music from the audio speakers in your room. The RS signal is a subtle but unmistakable filler.Once you start listening to your sound system with RS, you likely will not want to have it any other way, whether listening to an audio system, the TV, surround sound movies, or the car radio.Those who want to step up their music listening enjoyment should try a Roger Select. Happy Hearing!!"

"I have been wearing hearing aids for several years. I was told just a few years ago that I had to have a mold for my left ear because of surgery I had. Well Dr. Sally said that was no problem that she could fit me with a regular tip just like I have in my normal ear. I am so thankful that she did this for me. It is so much more comfortable and better in every way. Also, she cleaned out my bad ear that had a bunch of crud in it without charging me any extra. Last time I paid an ENT doctor 450.00 to do the same thing. I love my new hearing aids from Dr. Sally! I highly recommend Dr Sally - owner of Bridgewater Balance and Hearing!!"
