Sometimes its nice to know that there are really happy and really satisified people who wear hearing aids.  Here is a sample of a few of those people.

“Just very satisfied with doctors and staff at Woodward Audiology. Very nice, knowledgeable, professional people. I am very glad the facility is here in Kirksville.”
Lisa G.

“I am lost when I have to go without them (hearing aids) for any reason. I cannot believe how much of a difference hearing aids have made in my life”.
Mick P.

Randall S.

“I have been suffering a hearing loss since 1954. Finally I have an audiologist who is very competent and compassionate! Finally I am able to hear the best in 60+ years. Thank you!”
Mack K.

“I didn’t think I had much of a hearing loss, but after getting them (hearing aids), I see how much I was missing. I now even hear the clock ticking and the birds chirping.”
Mary S.

“Happy you recommended to me for my hearing aids.”
Betty B.

“I have highly recommended your office to my friends”.
Walter L

“Met with the Dr. for follow up and cleaning of the hearing aids, was very satisfied with the service and explanation of the cleaning process”.
Bill H.

“Woodward Audiology has been a blessing to me. Having my hearing back has changed the way I communicate with my kids, grandkids and my husband. I can hear people even in a crowded room”.
Carol G.

“Everyone has been very helpful and seems to enjoy what they do. I have nothing negative to say about staff or product. Never had a problem with getting in to have aids checked or repaired.”
Kitty A.

“I would recommend Woodward Audiology to anyone needing help with hearing problems.”
Martha D.

I have been completely deaf in my right ear for over 15 years due to complications cause by Meniere’s Disease. During that time period I have also lost hearing in my left ear to the same disease. Without an aid in that ear I am classed as profoundly deaf. Michelle has been the only audiologist to successfully tune a hearing aid that allows me to hear. Her understanding of hearing problems and how to chose a certain type of aid for a client is a reflection of years of education back by experience. Last year, I received a Cochlear Implant in my right ear. Michelle was present during the operation and was the first person I heard through the implant when she turned it on. I trust my precious gift of hearing to Michelle, knowing her professional abilities first hand.

Richard Thomas – Actor

Veteran actor Richard Thomas best known for his role as John Boy in The Waltons has helped to promote better hearing for the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) for more than 15 years; he has also served as the BHI National Chairman. In his public service announcements for BHI

Richard stated,“What would you do if you couldn’t see well? Probably have your eyes checked, get a pair of glasses, right? But if you couldn’t understand an ordinary conversation, what would you do? The smart thing would be to get a hearing check-up as I did. I got tired of asking people to repeat themselves. For me, hearing aids were the answer. Why are so many still suffering? False pride…lack of information? If someone you love doesn’t hear well, arrange for a hearing test today. You should HEAR what you’re missing.” 


Arnold Palmer – Legendary Golfer

Associated Press named him Athlete of the Decade in the 1960s. He has won 92 professional golf championships in his career including the Masters Tournament four times, 1958, 1960, 1962 and 1964, the U.S. Open in 1960 and the British Open in 1961 and 1962.

Having defeated hearing loss with hearing aids he devotes substantial time promoting the value of treating hearing loss. In a recent interview he stated the following: “I’ve noticed the sound of the golf ball being hit by the golf club is different and much more realistic with hearing aids.” The sound with the hearing aids makes sense and better represents what I know is happening to the golf ball.

So you could say that the hearing aids help give me confidence regarding my golf game. “I’ve been wearing hearing aids for a long time,” he says. “The technology available now is simply unbelievable. When I compare the new digital products to what we had 30 years ago, it’s an amazing difference. The products have improved dramatically, and fortunately, they’ll just continue to get better.”

Deidre Downs – Miss America 2005

 “Wearing hearing aids again gave me the ability to better participate in life, at school, and with family, and friends. Hearing aids have diminished the impact hearing loss has on my life. I finally feel like I can hear as well as a normal hearing person.

”I didn’t wear my aids for years and now that I do my friends and family are happier – and I can participate in my life more than ever before. If you have untreated hearing loss, don’t wait another day. See your hearing health professional, ask for the right solution and be an active participant in your life again.”
