After wearing a hearing aid on and off for 4 years, I found Dr. Sara Nagel at Center for Audiology. She has worked with me for several months during which time I’ve tried different styles of hearing aids until I found something that is highly effective, secure and comfortable. Beyond being kind and accommodating, she is most intelligent and skilled in making computer adjustments to the hearing aids that has led to the most natural and clearest hearing I’ve experienced in many years. She is a true professional, dedicated to her clients and her profession! – BS
I have been most impressed with Dr. Nagel’s thorough knowledge of audiology and her patience in answering my many questions. This is my third try with hearing aids, but this time I’ve finally found a winner! – JH

It was about six years ago when I first noticed I had a hearing loss. I had missed out on so many conversations. My biggest fear was that I could not be helped with my hearing. Shawn is the greatest! The staff were so friendly. Shawn was so compassionate. I really felt like she cared so much. Hearing aids have made my life complete. Clarity Hearing is the place to come to because they go above and beyond to help people. Shawn is a jewel! – Mary
Top-notch customer service. I cannot begin to explain or go into enough detail on Dr. Hawkins and her level of professionalism. She literally treated me like I was part of her family. (That’s how I felt anyway.) The level of service I received is nothing I’ve experienced before. So much so that I had my dad visit Dr Hawkins when he drove down for a visit from Tulsa. He wasn’t happy with his hearing aid provider in Oklahoma. Thank you Dr Hawkins and your amazing staff. Thank you for setting an amazing standard of service that is unfortunately not standard in this day and age. You’re amazing! – Ben
