“We came from another private doctor that was far away. We started seeing Dr. Brittany and have found out we were NOT given much information or guidance choosing my fathers hearing aids. Dr. Brittany has helped us choose better hearing aid that fit his lifestyle better”
– Karen Okano
“Brittany is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She took her time with my tests and explained my results very clearly. Brittany is the first audiologist that actually provided me with answers for my hearing problems. Brittany went above and beyond with my insurance to present me with several good options to fit my situation. I look forward to working with her as my audiologist of choice. I highly recommend her.”
