"Customer service was amazing very understanding people"

"My wife's hearing aids developed a loose wire, but we are old and sheltering from the public to avoid this awful virus. Called this center, and they notified that they will do curbside service. We drove into the parking lot, phoned them, gentleman came out (with mask and paper lined receptacles for transport of aids, we laid the hearing aids on the papers. He then asked whether he could clean MY hearing aids as well. I removed them and laid them in the other lined dish. He took both pairs and returned in about 20 minutes with mine cleaned, and my wife's repaired and cleaned, all in a very sanitary manner curbside. We never had to leave the car. We were both impressed with the understanding and exemplary service. If you are keeping safe but need some help, consider giving them a call."

"I have been wearing hearing aids for over 30 years, have lived in Maryland and Virginia prior to moving to Huntsville in 2019. I have had many sets of mid-price hearing aids, and dedicated, caring audiologists. I have just purchased a set of mid-range Oticon hearing aids from Charles Taylor, the second audiologist I have visited here, and am writing this review to let you know that I do not think you will find anyone who will provide more thorough testing, more professional analytical reviewing, or more caring, patient and friendly assistance than you will find with Charles. Unfortunately, hearing cannot be restored once lost, but Charles can and does prescribe the best assistance available, in my experience and opinion."

"Mr. Charles Taylor, Audiologist, has guided me thru at least 4-5 sets of hearing aids in ~30 years. He and his office staff have always been helpful, kind, timely, and professional.Mr. Taylor seems to keep up with the latest trends and hearing aid technology. He will clean all hearing aids, tubes, ear molds, microphone screens and filters.All hearing aids need, capital letters 'need', to be checked at least yearly. It's surprising how much dust, debris plug up sound, and decrease the effectiveness of a hearing aid.He often has hearing aid battery sales, and these batteries last much longer than a local pharmacy battery! Totally worth adding yourself to their mail list for those announcements."

"I have had hearing aids in years past but struggled with finding a solution that properly addressed my type of hearing loss. I first met with Charles Taylor a few short months ago and knew immediately that I had found an audiologist that would listen closely to my concerns and genuinely care about addressing my needs. Charles carefully explained my options and then spent weeks allowing me to try various options to ensure that the final choice would be the best fit for me. My current hearing aids have been life-changing for me and that is a direct a result of Charles' efforts. Charles offers the most up to date technology. He is meticulous about seeking feedback from the patient to make sure to select the best and most cost effective hearing solution. His focus is on making life better for his patients. I wholeheartedly recommend Charles / Decatur Hearing Aid Center for anyone dealing with hearing issues."

"Mr. Taylor stays up with current technology and advances in helping people with hearing loss. He doesn't just sell hearing aids. He is very good with fitting and adjusting them. I have worn hearing aids for almost 30 years due to a hereditary hearing loss. I have seen 4 different audiologist during those years, and Mr. Taylor, by far is the most knowledgeable and helpful. He understands the problems with wearing hearing aids and is will work with you until you have the best possible hearing solution. I have been seeing Mr. Taylor for almost six years now and am perfectly satisfied that I have the best solution for my hearing loss and lifestyle."
