SSH & B --- I can always depend on the folks there to know the best way for them to both talk to my husband and to make sure that he understands them. They go out of their way to accommodate and we both appreciate that. I also appreciate their follow-up calls, too.

So pleased to have found these professionals!! After several visits, the Silver State team continues to excel in friendliness, ease of working with and ability to execute. I am now trialing a suggested hearing aid selected by Nancy Henderson, my audiologist. Her device selection rationale was impressively thougthful and empathetic. Moreover, it clearly demonstrated subject matter knowledge and the desire to fully meet my unique needs.Her support team are simply first rate in efficiency and pleasure to work with. Sometimes you just want to share the good news!

I went to Silver State Hearing to get my hearing tested and saw Kayla, the resident audiologist.  She was gentle and thorough and explained everything  she was doing.  When it came to finding the "right" hearing aid, she explained the differences, what she would recommend specifically for me and why.  I was not rushed through any part of the appointment.  She even took the time and explained to my husband why he had always had problems with his hearing aids so now he knows what to go back to his doctor and question.  The place is bright and clean, the office staff were pleasant and helpful.

Everyone was friendly.  The waiting room was very clean.  They even had a little refrigerator with free water bottles.  That was appreciated.
The appointment only took about 30 minutes.   Dr. Ball explained what should happen next, then I was done.  I would recommend her to anyone.

Easy to make appointment, on time seeing Dr Hodie, Explained the results of hearing test. I didn't realize that you needed to have your hearing aides cleaned every 6 months. That was the reason that I could not hear any difference with hearing aides in or out. Highly recommend
