"Dr. Naghdi is truly one of a kind. She is the most patient healthcare professional I have come across and genuinely cares for her patients. I could not recommend her more highly for any of your hearing needs. BrightHear's prices are also very fair!"

"She is great. Very thorough. I could not hear and she stayed late until I got there and cleaned out ear wax. Now I can hear my wife again. Thank you Dr. Naghdi."

"My Oticon hearing aids were fit a little over two years ago in Massachusetts before moving to LA. Recently the sound failed intermittently and I suspected that the tubes had become blocked, but it seemed that removing the tightly attached tubes per the Oticon generic instructions might break the instruments. I spoke to an audiologist in Massachusetts (where they were still under warranty), and she said it might be necessary to bring them in for them to look at. When I explained I was now in LA she gave me the names of the first two hearing centers on the Oticon list for this area. I called the first company, Hearing Help Providers and explained  that I just wanted to know if I should be able to remove the tubes, as otherwise I'd send them back to Massachusetts for service. Since they weren't purchased from them, they said there would be a $350 dispensing fee (per device?)  and a minimum $75 visit fee. Again I indicated that I just wanted a question answered about that model aid, but the fees remained. See my 1 star review for them. I then called BrightHear, the second number on the list. It was mid afternoon, and the receptionist said she;d have an audiologist call me, but it might not be until the next morning. The audiologist, Jaklin, did call in the morning, and said it would be best to bring the devices in. We're normally just a few minutes away from them, but as it turned out, we were in Orange County for dental appointments. So  she offered a 4PM slot, but that;s when we pick up our grandson from preschool, so she said 5 PM would be OK. (I since noticed on their site that the normal closing time is 5.)There was no mention on the phone of fees. We arrived about 20 minutes early, while Jaklin was busy with another client. The receptionist looked at the hearing aids and the model information we gave her. She called Oticon and determined that these high-end models were still under mfr warranty, which is 3 years rather than their usual 2. I'd thought the 3rd year was just  aspecial provision of our Mass. Eye and Ear infirmary location. Then Jaklin saw us and took the aids to see what needed to be done. The original tubes had hardened, making ordinary removal impossible, but she had the tools necessary to remove them without damaging the instruments. She found that they were indeed clogged, and measured and fitted them with new tubes. The fee: $15 per tube. She also suggested that since I hadn't been tested in more than two years, we come back before the warranty expires to be tested and possibly have the settings adjusted, They also offer an extended warranty that can be purchased before the original warranty expires. (Again I;d thought we'd missed the two year cutoff for that.)She explained that the tubes did harden with time and become more prone to clogging, but aren't really removable for cleaning by the client, so we should bring them in if there are any signs that cleaning is needed, and they're happy to do it.The experience at BrightHear couldn't have been warmer or more satisfying, These are lovely, caring, people. (And a hearing test there would likely be covered by my health insurance.) the thoroughly delightful experience there (for a total cost of $30 to fit new tubes on the hearing aids)."

"My hearing aids were not functioning properly and, through the efforts of the manufacturer I was directed to Bright Hear and introduced to Michael, Daisy and Jacklyn. I cannot praise them all too highly for the outstanding care and concerned they displayed in solving my predicament quickly and expertly. Not only did they have my defective units rebuilt and returned to perfect function, they loaned me a pair of aids to wear during the repair period. If you have any hearing needs, whether a first time user, or, as I am, a long time wearer, you will not find a dispenser more willing, warm or able than the folks at Bright Hear. They are my new care givers for life."
