A&HAA Customer Testimonials
Despite a diagnosis of profound hearing loss, I have been able to remain engaged with the people I love and activities I enjoy, as well as work in a field that is highly dependent on the ability to hear. I absolutely feel I have Erika to thank for that, and I am so grateful for her support, up-to-date knowledge and advocacy as my audiologist. Hearing aids these days have been revolutionized by significant advances in acoustical engineering which have created richer sound quality and streaming flexibility. With each advance, Erika has guided and worked with me to fine-tune my hearing instruments so I can attain the highest possible level of performance. With her skills and knowledge, Erika could work anywhere in the country. We are so lucky to have her as a highly trained and skilled audiologist in our community!

I LOVE the outdoor program Erika created for me. I enjoy hiking, skiing, and birdwatching. I can now identify not just the calls of the individual birds, but the quality of each bird's voice, and pinpoint their locations. I also am THRILLED with the rechargeable option for my aids. No fuss with batteries!

Erika listened carefully to my specific needs for hearing, and adapted programs to match my lifestyle. She also has a terrific friendly and positive attitude. She has helped me look forward to my new adventure in hearing better!
Kathryn Bulinski
Wow! Erika is just amazing. The first totally honest audiologist. She concentrates on getting the customer the best hearing aid for them rather than the huge bill most hearing aid specialists try for. Her hearing aids are so reasonable--the most being around $6,000 for the best. She explains all options and is up front with explaining the differences between the hearing aids. She gave both my husband and myself the best hearing test I have ever had. Erika services most leading brands and provides the best batteries. What a blessing to have her in our small town. We are so pleased .

Erika has a great deal of patience with her patients! She worked so hard with me to get the proper type of hearing aid for my use (going so far as to take one pair back and having a different type manufactured for me at no additional charge) as well as getting the proper settings for the hearing aids. I would have given up on me but she just continued to work with me until the aids were comfortable and set properly. All of that, and she has a very pleasing personality as well! She is definitely a keeper!

Erika responded promptly to my e-mail and scheduled me for an appointment the next day. She worked with me until my problem was resolved and I left with perfectly functioning aids. How many people give you service like that? Erika does.

My new hearing aids sound very natural...after wearing aids for fifteen years it’s a little hard to remember what real hearing is like. My new hearing aids seem very natural. The settings built into my new aids are quite remarkable and include the ability to fine tune my aids with my iPhone, the ability to choose three distinctly different programs for different environments, and best of all I can answer my phone and hear the conversation in my ears. I miss way less conversation with this new function.

Having several health issues already, I dreaded the thought of hearing aids. It just seemed like something else to deal with. I was so wrong!

It is wonderful hearing sounds that I previously did not hear, or barely heard. Hearing not only what people are saying, especially in noisy environments, but also being able to understand what is being said, is invaluable. Family gatherings have become more meaningful now that I am able to hear and understand conversations. I disliked having to ask people to repeat something. Sometimes I would just sit back and only be able to grasp bits and pieces of what was being said. Watching T.V. is so much more enjoyable too, since I can now clearly hear everything that was once muffled without having to ask my husband to clarify the dialogue.

Also, my hearing aids are virtually invisible due to their small size and how they match my hair.

Erika Blanchard has made the whole process extremely simple and she couldn't have been more supportive the entire time. It has been a positive experience, including the initial hearing aid discussion, the fitting and subsequent adjustment.

Erika is very personable and easy to talk to, and explains everything in detail. She has made herself easily available by phone or email.
