“I don't know whom to thank first. My interaction with your company, Tabitha Rossini and Bridgewater Balance and Hearing, and to all involved — you have my gratitude. You have all brought me the gift of sound again, the likes I did not know how much I was missing for over twelve years. I have been disabled and also needed hearing aids since 2007. I have lived below the poverty line for many years and still could not manage to save enough money to get hearing aids. Words can't express my gratitude to all involved but THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! My life has changed for the better since i can hear again.”
