Testimonials

"I have been seeing Bruce for over 12 years. His wonderful expertise, experience and attention to my needs won me over after a series of other dispensers over the years. Over those years I have worn Miracle Ear, an unknown digital set, Sonic, Starkey (didn't work out for me so Bruce sent them back), Siemens and now, my best and most naturally sounding set, Resound! Bruce is deserving of more stars than this review allows. Ever been frustrated by your dispenser? Clearly that was someone other than Bruce at Sharp Hearing. See Bruce. The ones you love will love you for it."

"Very thorough and sincere. Great service and prices that beat any of the competition."

– D. Clay

"Consummate professionals. Not a pop-up audiologist kiosk at the mall, this place knows their business. I was having some feedback problems with a very expensive set of hearing devices that I purchased overseas. I thought that it might be just a matter of cleaning, or maybe a tune up, but the doctor there was so thorough, that he found the problem, and fixed it for me with only about $3.00 worth of plastic stabilizers to keep the devices more snugly in my ears. I'm sure he could have gone ahead and charged me some sort of minimum fee, had me go through a battery of hearing tests, but he's an honest good hardworking man, and when I do have a real problem that needs to be fixed, I will have no reservations about going to him and having my devices serviced and my hearing checked. Two thumbs up from me, and five Yelp stars!"
