Just had to let you know how well my hearing aids worked for me last night at my reunion. It was very loud. Surprisingly, my hearing aids worked very well for me, and I was able to cut down the sound and understand most of what was said. Everybody was very friendly and happy to see each other. Bill said the room was extremely noisy and he was glad to leave when we did. So I did better than he did because of my hearing aids. What a relief for me! Thank goodness!!
Dear Dr. Martine - I am writing this note to tell you how much I am enjoying my hearing aids. I thought that when I told you that $2000.00 was all I could afford, I would be told you couldn’t help me. But instead I was given professional courtesy and service as if I were a $10,000 customer. You and your staff went out of their way to please me. Your service is the same as long as you’re using the hearing aids. Thank You.
When I first came to Carolina Hearing Services, Inc. (CHS), I was impressed with the warm, friendly atmosphere as well as the non-pretentious nature of the facility, especially the waiting room where time spent was always minimal. Dr. Martine and her staff are well-trained, personable, and made every effort to learn about the development of my particular hearing deficiency. They conducted an evaluation and carefully explained the program and devices they could offer and were sensitive to financial considerations as well. The facility is adequately equipped with up-to-date computer technology that allows CHS to provide and service a wide range of modern digital hearing aid products. I found it most helpful to be able to use a trial period in an effort to find the aid best suited to my own needs and situation, including comfort, fit, and maintenance. The folks at CHS are dedicated to achieving better hearing for the patient and are genuinely interested in providing the right equipment to meet that goal. I felt they treated me with a great deal of respect and were more than willing to work with my irregular and extended schedule.
I was never rushed and there was no pressure to purchase any preferred device. At every step in the process, their work was conducted in a professional manner, and I would certainly recommend CHS to anyone with a hearing difficulty who seeks better understanding and a good chance for improvement.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cathy Martine’s since 1990. She has helped to save me money on the purchase of hearing aids. When digital was first starting, she encouraged me to stick with my analog aids due to price concerns. I now have two behind the ear digital aids that are wonderful. Whenever I have any problems with the aids, she and her staff are very helpful in making sure that if repairs need to be made (out of office) that I get a loaner aid so that I can continue my life. Cathy and her staff are wonderful. I could not ask for a better doctor/patient relationship. Thanks for everything.
The treatment I have received at Carolina Hearing has been excellent. Dr. Martine expended considerable effort to find a hearing aid to help my problem. A conventional hearing aid could not help. She finally succeeded and while the results are not perfect, they show a marked improvement over being without any help.
I have been suffering from hearing loss for 50 years - since serving in the Army before the days of ear protection through years of business meetings and public life where speaking and hearing are clearly crucial. Thanks to Catherine’s skill and her expert staff, I have a new and fine-tuned set of hearing aids and am acquiring the discipline to recover the joy of hearing. It is actually fun to visit Carolina Hearing for adjustments or batteries and fun conversation as well. Even her three dachshunds are pleasant. I now have fewer misunderstandings with family and friends; greater enjoyment of concerts, movies, and, yes, even TV; and I don’t have to repeatedly say, “Excuse me. If you have hearing issues, talk to Carolina Hearing about them.
We have great memories of your wonderful care for Allison. You should hear her talk now!!!
I just want to tell you how much I enjoy coming here.
I want to thank everyone at Carolina Hearing Services. The entire staff was very friendly and most helpful in every possible way. The difference my hearing aids have made in my life is unbelievable. I can hear things I have not been able to hear in a long time, and the hearing aids are easy to wear and are very comfortable. I recommend Carolina Hearing Services for anyone with a hearing loss.
