My name is Bob Sigler and I’m a retired teacher.
I spend three weeks each month in Nevada with my son. I visit to help with the grandkids and with the simpler maintenance tasks like cooking and standing in line for license renewal. I spend one week in the keys each month as I am not prepared to give up my independence and to keep the salt from taking my house.
I am 77 and have been wearing aids for more than thirty years. I believe that Dr. Michelle is my 7th audiologist. Because I was a teacher, I was very sensitive to my hearing loss. You can’t teach if you cannot understand your students.
I was fortunate in that my first audiologist was also very good. The five or so in between varied in quality but were at best adequate so I was very pleased to discover that Dr. Michelle was the best audiologist I have had.
My hearing loss is now substantial and fine tuning my aids is very important to me.
As the things that are important in my life change, I want to change the settings on my hearings aids.
As hearing aids have become more sophisticated the range of possible adjustments has greatly expand. Most hearing aids are fairly similar today. To some extent, you get what you buy. This is a substantial purchase that will continue to provide service for the rest of your life.
You should buy the best possible instruments. The cost of the instruments is just a part of what you buy.
The more important part is the care that you receive. If you are like me and the quality of your hearing is important to you, service is more important than then the instruments themselves.
Dr. Michelle is the best. She is patient, she if very good at figuring out just what I need in the various environments that are important to me, and she always makes time for me whenever I need her expertise.
Although I spend much more time in Nevada and there are many recommended audiologists in the Las Vegas area, I will continue to enjoy the superior service I get from Dr. Michelle.
