"I didn't think I had a hearing problem, but my wife was tired of speaking loudly, repeating herself and
having the TV turned way up. She asked me to see Dr. Culbertson at Meadowcrest Audiology, and we're

loss I have and corrected it with hearing aids that fit my budget. No one knows I'm wearing hearing aids
unless I tell them, and now I don't miss out on conversations with friends, and I can hear TV dialogue
better at a volume that is comfortable for everyone else. If your loved one is starting to have trouble
hearing, ask them to see Dr. Culbertson, you'll both be glad you did.”
