For many years I have suffered with hearing loss. When I decided to get hearing aids, Dr. Phon explained the whole process to me. He provided step-by-step care which proved to be wonderfully successful. I can now understand the speaker at meetings. I can now enjoy conversations in noisy restaurants with my family. I hear well in church and enjoy TV shows. Dr. Phon’s excellent work has dramatically improved my life.
