“This is the best hearing aid place in town the staff are wonderful so helpful and great!"
“Dr. Debbie: You folks adjusted the volume on my hearing aids recently.
Did you know for example, that notebook computers have a little cooling fan that whirrs away quietly? I didn’t, until the Thursday morning when I came back to my office and couldn’t figure out where that strange new sound was coming from. I finally tracked it down to my computer. Anyway, thanks a bunch.”
"it is such a special thing when someone takes the time to write a thank-you note. We are humbled and honoured by all who have done so!"
In my contacts, one at a time, through all of the audiologists in Swift Current and Moose Jaw, no one was found who was willing or able to try to solve Mom's hearing problem. Some were more sympathetic than others, but the answer was always, "No."
Enter Eastside Audiology... (sorry for the length of this email, but you will agree it's necessary) I called your office and Amanda kindly took my call, telling me that Dr Jill would call me back, which she did very promptly. I outlined our circumstances and difficulty, and she listened well. At the end her words were simple: "Let me see what I can do."
I will never forget either the words or the tone. Ringing through both were the professionalism of someone who knows what she is doing, someone who knows where boundaries lie and what the system can do. Yet underlying and coursing through those words was a tone of compassion which could not be missed, one which is heard only from individuals who serve in their profession of choice because they truly want to serve. Compassion. Service that is willing to serve.
Jill, we are SO very grateful for you and all your hard work, your patience and effort when you didn't have to do all that you did, even when it was a hard time. You have given Mom another chance where she really didn't have one at all, and we are so very, very grateful for your expertise, but most of all for your caring and compassion that crossed boundaries to reach a very special sweet old lady that needed to be reached.
Thank you, from our hearts, Dr. Jill!

"My experience with my hearing aids has been a life changing experience, I don't know how I managed without them. They have quickly become a part of my life. I put them on when I get up just like my spectacles. When I first got them I could not believe the music I could hear. My guitar had sounds I had never heard. I used to need the TV at volume 22 and now I hear it just fine at 12. Co-workers commented that it was the first time they did nothave to repeat everything they told me.
About the supplier, Eastside Audiology. The service has been top notch, the people have been friendly and have seemed to go the extra mile to assist me with all questions and the little things in getting used to this new phase of life. I would recommend to anyone who is hearing deficient to give this a try, it certainly was a great experience for me."
"Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well"
"First can you please pass along my following comments to your entire staff. This was my first visit to your facility and I was very impressed with the professionalism, the politeness and kindness. I hear (ha ha) that my hearing is normal. However, your facility is way better than normal. Much thanks for your professionalism!”

"This place is amazing, the staff has always gone above and beyond to help us with our mom. None of us live close to mom and they have been so accommodating to help keep mom going with her aids! Thanks so much ladies!"

"I hope you know it's appreciated all that you did for me"
“Great staff nice building. The Audiologist Amanda (Forster) was professional, thorough and courteous. I got my hearing testing and she took the time to explain the results, she also explained my options and provided me with lots of information. Would recommend anyone to see her"
“After taking my son to see multiple doctors for an issue with his walking/balance and getting no satisfactory medical explanation I decided to see an audiologist thinking perhaps it may be an inner ear issue. Dr. Debbie Davis did a thorough examination and found no abnormalities that could be related to the issues he was experiencing.
The day after our appointment I received a follow up call from Dr. Debbie. Although she had ruled out any issues from her area of expertise she still went above and beyond to help point me in the direction of other medical specialists. Finally, I felt like someone cared and was on my side. With this encouragement I quit taking the "wait and see" attitude from the doctors we had previously seen and continued pushing for answers. He is now getting the medical attention I've been seeking.
I am very impressed with Dr. Debbie's professionalism, knowledge & commitment to her patients. I would highly recommend her!”
"Dear Dr. Debbie & the staff at Eastside Audiology,
I want to thank you all for the help you have given me in continuing my educational learning process. I had great time learning more about the practice of audiology and specifically how it relates to my future profession. I will take all that I have learned back to the university and will share it with the faculty and students."
"Thanks so much for all of your kindness, patience, & expertise during my recent visits to you. I was SO anxious about coming given all my recent ear problems (infection, ear ruptures, & loss of hearing) but I'm glad I did. I look forward to future services with you. Lindsay at the front was great, too! :)"
"Thank you so very much for all of your work with our students. We are so grateful!"
