Sarah O“Since receiving hearing aids from Racker Audiology Clinic, I can interact with ease and I am able to participate much more in my community. I find myself asking others around me to lower their voice because I no longer need them to project so loudly; now one-on-one communication is so much easier! When I am outside, I am hearing birds that I haven’t heard in years! I hear chickadees and blue jays, my awareness is so much greater. My ears are happy, it’s a world of difference!”
