Dr. Hinkle did a very good job explaining his findings. He spent a lot of time explaining the devices and adapting them to my hearing deficiency. I am very satisfied with Dr. Hinkle’s' office services. Nice staff. Very nice medical help. I will remain his patient. Very satisfied.

In the past I advised my sister in law to see Dr. Hinkle. She did and was satisfied. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Hinkle's services."

- Dr. Raul Oviedo, M.D., Elkton, VA

I have been very happy their service, cooperation and cheerful attitude. I would highly recommend that a friend go to their office and let Dr. Hinkle and his staff talk them through ALL the steps they should follow. I know they will not be "high pressured" into doing something they don't need. I also would tell them: 'You will like these people.'"

— - Bill Blessing, Harrisonburg, VA

I am now on my second set of hearing aids and very pleased with the hearing aids and the support of Dr. Hinkle and his staff. Hearing aids are an experience but well worth the investment if you have a problem. You would be pleased with the services of Dr. Hinkle and his staff."
