“I have experienced and enjoyed the truly professionalism provided by Personalized Hearing Care for many years. Kim and Darlene at the Westland facility have provided genuine excellence, caring for my hearing needs with attention to detail. From evaluation to selecting the best hearing aids needed, care was provided without any disappointment I have experienced from other companies. I am now receiving the same professional care from Karissa (Dr. Jagacki) and Sue at the new South Lyon facility.”
