Ascent Audiology & Hearing McLean, VA - RIC Hearing Aid User

Female Voice: I have worn hearing aides for 11 years. I was losing some of the hearing in my left ear and I went to have my ears tested and that was by an audiologist. And she said definitely I had a hearing loss and I needed to get hearing aides because there was enough difference between the two ears.

So, I searched around in this area because I've lived here for quite a number of years, to find a place where I could get hearing aides that seem to be all right, so I got those. And I have to tell you, of course they were the ones that fit inside the ear and I had a little difficulty in keeping them. And I lost them somewhere and I had to get them replaced. But it did help tremendously.

And I went back to have them tested again later on and I knew that I was having a change in the amount of knowledge or whatever it was that I could hear. So, he said definitely that I needed an upgrade on those, because they would put them as high as they could, but I need new hearing aides soon. So, then I waited for a while and I got them, and new ones.

These lasted all right, and then I began to have more difficulty again. And so I went to an audiologist that was recommended by the hearing center for Fairfax County. She said, yes, I definitely was going to need new hearing aides. So, I got another pair of hearing aides and I guess I didn't realize what I should do, and it's hard to know exactly what to do in some type- in these situations.

But anyway, I finally came over here and got with Baxter, Baxter, I guess it is, and got these hearing aides. And I need the ones that fit inside the ear, and these are bigger. And I can adjust them myself while they're in my ear. The others that I had just previous to this were the ones that adjusted if you carry the little do hickey with you and pushed it at whatever it seemed like it's one, two, three, four, and five.

Well anyway, so I've come in here and these hearing aides are good. I just, maybe I'm the one that's having the difficulty in adjusting to it because sometimes I will get into a room, I'm not a home body person, I like to get out and get around. So, I go to many different kinds of situations and I'll still have some difficulty in hearing. And one of the things I enjoy so much is music, and music doesn't come across real well sometimes.

But, since we've had the earthquake, I've woke up in the night and been sneezing. And after I sneeze so many times I can hear better. So, it must mean that it has something to do with allergies too and the pressure, I'm not sure what, I'm not sure that anybody can take a nose off for me.

But anyway, I'm glad that these are better and I am glad that I can clean 'em myself or to keep them always clean. Then I don't have to carry that other thing around. I can adjust just the hearing aides as they're in my ears. And I do wear them all day, and if I happen to forget to put them in the first thing in the morning, somebody calls, I say, "Oh, wait a minute. I've got to get my ears." And so I run and get those and put them in it.

I have those special phones that would make the hearing not so - easier for me and then of course, they're portable, so like I walk around and do it. But, this is something else that you have to get used to as you live and just one of the things. So, here I am and I'm trying, and we'll see how things go for the future. I always look forward to good things.

Dr Anzola is outstanding. Dr Anzola has provided me with hearing aids that have improved my hearing dramatically. She does an outstanding job of adjusting them each time I see her. Her staff will always fit me in if I need some help. My hearing aids have made such an improvement in the quality of my life. I am most grateful to Dr Anzola.

- Linda B., Annandale, VA

Great Service with Outstanding Results. Lost my previous hearing aids so went to Dr Ana Anzola for help in getting new ones. Thanks to her I have new hearing aids which are extraordinarily better than anything I had before. She takes time to analyze your hearing loss and then creates the best solution tailored to your needs. I woukld recommend her to anyone who suffers from hearing loss problems.

- Thomas A., Mc Lean, VA

A five-star experience! I am a first-time hearing-aid user. I did not know what to expect but Dr. Anzola immediately put me at ease, explained the process and educated me on available options. I have been impressed with the follow-up services. The doctors and staff are friendly, efficient and professional. I have recommended Ascent to others.

- Kathleen S., Herndon, VA

A+++++ (that's 5) for service, professionalism, expertise, etc. I went to the office not really knowing what to expect. Marci Smith was the Audiologist and she is very personable and professional. I am almost please enough to travel to Rockville, her normal office. Everything about the people and office are really the best.

- Richard L., Falls Church, VA

All 5 stars! I purchased my Starkey hearing aids in Naples Florida where we spend part of the year. Audiology Associates located in Naples found Ascent in a directory. With the office close to where we live, I have come in twice to purchase supplies. Service was professional, courteous, and prompt. I will be back for continued purchases as well as service on my hearing aids if necessary.

- Richard S., Oakton, VA

Service is very good and quick. After service my hearing aid is in good condition. I satisfy. Thanks.

- Thuy D., Rockville, MD

Excelent practice. Dr Anzola is an excellent professional. I'm very happy with her professional practice and office. Before I went there, I visited many doctors and they never solved my problem. With Dr. Anzola my experience has been very good.

- Ana B., Bethesda, MD

Excellent! Highly recommend. I accompanied my mother for her initial exam and again when she received the hearing aids. I was very impressed with the amount of time spent and the attention to detail. My mother is not an easy customer and for her to be impressed also says volumes. Dr. Anzola listened well and carefully and responded to all questions and concerns. I was invited to sit in as the aids were prepared and how to use and care for them was explained. She took A LOT of time going over everything, answering questions, and explaining everything in detail. We never felt hurried or rushed. Our appointment was on a Friday late afternoon. What totally amazed us was on Saturday morning my mother got a call from Dr. Anzola. She wanted to see how my mother did after the appointment and in the morning. She asked my mother if she had any questions or concerns. A follow up from the doctor WITHOUT a call from us, was a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend her.

- Dale L., Alexandria, VA

Dr. Anzola is very attentive, listens very carefully to what ou have to say, will answer all guestions and will change whatever that can be changed to accommidate your wishes. If you have a problem Dr. Anzola will squeeze you in as soon as possible.

I Can Hear!!! Dr. Anzola and her staff have been unbelievably fabulous with me. They worked with me to make sure that I got the help I needed and got the comfort that I wanted. They've been there every time I've needed advice or help. And yes, I've already been recommending them to friends. Think you can't hear? Go get help - After 10 years, I'm hearing the birds again... I had no idea how much I'd lost and I'm so happy to have it back again!

- Sheldon C., Arlington, VA
