What Our Patients Say About Us
From the moment I stepped into the office at Sound Advice Hearing Solutions I felt very comfortable. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It didn’t feel like a medical clinic, and the service was superior
I received my hearing aids from Sound Advice Hearing Solutions on a Friday. On Saturday we were at a party and I could hear people talking over the sound of the band playing. That hasn't happened in years. Thank You Patty.
I have known Patty for many years. She is always a pleasure to deal with and I consider her my friend as well as my practitioner. She is always friendly and helpful in no matter what I may be needing. She knows how to fix any concerns I may have with my hearing aids so I can continue to hear what is happening in the world around me.
Patty graduated from the Hearing Aid Practitioners program at MacEwan University in 2000. She also has her Audiometric Technician course which allows her to do screenings for government employees.
She first got into the industry because of the struggles she watched her grandmother go through with her listening difficulties. Patty wants to help those with hearing difficulties as she knows firsthand how it can isolate those who are affected. It is a frustrating situation to be in and she just wants to help people manage their hearing loss and hear the sounds / hear voices they may have been missing. She wants to help hearing loss individuals "Capture the moment".
Crystal completed the Hearing Aid Practitioners program at MacEwan University in 2008 and became Board Certified with the National Board for Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences ( NBC-HIS) in 2010. She has also completed her Audiometric Technician Course.
After experiencing her grandparents battle with hearing loss, Crystal decided to engage on a career path in Hearing Health. She is passionate, caring and driven to help people improve their quality of life. Crystal believes Hearing is Important. We live in a World of Sound, and Hearing IS our connection to this world. Come in and I will listen ; don't just live life, HEAR life!
