Words can’t adequately express my deeply heartfelt gratitude to you for going above and beyond the call of duty to successfully help me find my lost hearing aid. Although I had searched my car multiple times, your meticulous inspection of my car left to the discovery that it had fallen into a crevice inside my car when I had taken off my mask.
After searching my car multiple times, I had sadly gone to Live Better Hearing in West Long Branch, where I had bought them, thinking I would have to buy a new one and to my surprise, instead of immediately selling me a new one, you quickly got permission to leave the front desk and go help me look through my car once again. This unbelievably kind and empathetic response gives a new meaning to dedicated customer support! Thank you ever so much for your caring help and successful resolution of my problem.
