I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the foundation and the generous, kind people who are responsible for making the quality of my life much better. In view of the failing physical disability of my situation and faced with decreased mobility from Post Polio Syndrome. I was overwhelmed with discouragement and distress and felt like I had little hope left. My hearing loss was hindering the last thread I had left to the quality of my life. Not being able to hear puts a person in a strange, silent, empty world.
The hearing aids have drastically improved my daily and social life. It has enabled me to take part in conversations that I could not make out or understand before. It has opened once again the lines of communication within my family circle. It has provided me the opportunity to hear while attending Christian Services and Worship. I can once again hear the birds in the trees, the leaves rustling in the wind, water trickling from the rain and instruments in the sounds of music. All of which are simple, beautiful, natural sounds taken for granted, until it is taken away. I cannot express enough to you, my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation once again for the foundation and all the generous, kind people involved for making the quality of my life so much better.

[Selective Hearing] changed my life. I was becoming more and more reclusive because I could not understand what others were saying. After Dr. Erica Ray prescribed a hearing device, I can perform my job and interact with family and friends. I’m able to live again.

My hearing was severely impaired. As an attorney and retired judge, listening is a large part of what I do. Selective Hearing has allowed me to continue working.

My wife couldn’t comprehend why, when she was speaking clearly and at a normal volume, I was unable to understand what she was saying. After [Selective Hearing] demonstrated what I was hearing in their sound studio, she understood – it was an eye opening experience.
I quit wearing hearing aids in 1975 because the device amplified everything, including background noise – I preferred to be deaf than to fight with all the extra noise. Now, because of the new technology that hearing aids employ, the background noise that bothered me so much has been eliminated as only the frequencies I have a deficit in are the ones amplified.

We went to Selective Hearing when Malyn was only two years old. Selective Hearing was able to not only test his hearing, but also fit him with a hearing device that was suitable for a toddler.
– Thomas & Krystal Engel, son Malyn has been a hearing device user since 2010.
I was referred to Selective Hearing by my audiologist in Monroe when moving to Acadiana after several other hearing aid stores could not help me. [Selective Hearing] never gave up; they were persistent and continually adjusted my instruments until I could hear. Because of my condition I will never hear perfectly, but I can hear so much better than before. I’ve even recommended Selective Hearing to my daughter.

I can hear again. If you’ve been to places before that can’t help you, Selective Hearing can. Plus, I like the way that I’m treated there.
