Audibel office in Frankfort is very responsive to any need I may have with my hearing aids. Most recently the tech there restored the balance between the two aids by cleaning and changing simple parts. I’ll be back.

Friendly and knowledgeable. I have minor hearing loss so I did not need hearing aids at this time. I would recommend everyone getting a hearing test. It does not hurt! And the assessment is free!
