This is long overdue, but I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for how much you’ve done for me over the years. From hearing tests and hearing aid recommendations, to going out of your way to ensure that I had a working hearing aid that made me comfortable. You are a true professional who really cares for your patients! I look forward to continuing our relationship for many more years to come. Hats off to you!
Dear Dr. Janet,
THANK YOU so much for all that you have done for us. The hearing aids have been phenomenal, and we really appreciate ALL of your help with the entire process. So please take the time to enjoy this little basket of goodies. We appreciate your service so much!

I love my hearing aids! Janet is so personable, she’s a real people person. I feel so comfortable with her! I am hearing so well now. My grandchildren were the real test, and I hear their little voices now. Thank you for helping me get my active lifestyle back again!

The new hearing aids are wonderful to me. I can hear things that I haven’t heard in a long time. They are so comfortable, I don’t even know they are in my ears! I feel like I am part of a group when at a party or at church. I am so happy! Thank you, Janet.
To whom it may concern:
I had tried for several years to deny my need for a hearing aid, usually claiming that others spoke too softly and that TV and radio were turned down too low, even though, at age 78, I realized that my hearing wasn’t as good as in my earlier years. I had had periodic hearing examinations, and these corroborated my diminished hearing ability, so I knew that I finally had to pay attention. I had also delayed seriously considering getting a hearing aid because I felt the technology wasn’t sufficiently advanced, and, even more important, I was and remain convinced that hearing aid costs are unfairly omitted from most insurance plans; after all, who ever chose to have a hearing aid for cosmetic reasons? They are clearly and exclusively a therapeutic device to help the hearing-impaired.
But after saying all this for some years, I finally decided to do something about my hearing loss. Of course, I had the same options anyone reading this testimonial does, ranging from department stores to hearing aid shops to licensed practitioners to physicians, but I wanted the best qualified person to provide my specific hearing therapy without this being either a high-pressure sales pitch from highly-advertised mass-market dealers, at one extreme, or, at the other, a profitable conflict of interest situation similar to that of an ophthalmologist who just happens to have an optical practice conveniently located in his or her office.
After consultation with friends who wore hearing aids as well as physicians whom I knew and trusted, I selected Janet Westlund, who was uniformly praised highly and who has a Doctor of Audiology degree, a specialized degree qualifying her to deal exclusively with hearing problems. At our initial appointment, after diagnosing my needs based on a thorough hearing examination, she discussed my various options, explaining the advantages and costs of each and allowing my wife and me to make an educated choice. I have had no reservations or qualifications about my decision to consult with Dr. Westlund, for she does one thing and one thing only, diagnosing and fitting hearing aids, and she has been doing this for some 30 years to uniformly high praise. Dr. Westlund accurately determined what I needed for my hearing loss, and she is always available for follow-up service, adjustment, and advice.
My only regret is that I didn’t get a hearing aid several years earlier, for this would have enhanced my life and the lives of those who had to listen constantly to my complaints about volume! I have now had my specially programmed hearing aid for several months, and it has made a world of difference. One needs only to see the smile on my wife’s face to realize that today’s hearing aid technology is effective and that my hearing aid is as important a normal part of my daily life as my glasses. I would be happy to talk to anyone who reads this testimonial about my experience with Dr. Westlund.

I suffered with hearing loss for a long time. With my new hearing aids, I can now hear my grandchildren beautifully! They’re so happy I can finally hear them. And I’m a happier person now. I think people used to feel I was antisocial, but I just couldn’t hear. Now everyone realizes I am a very social person! Thank you so much for helping to improve my lifestyle.
Thank you so much for recommending the new hearing aids for my husband, Don. It was so nice to be able to talk to him, saying it only once, and he could hear me when he came home. This was the best Christmas gift we could have gotten. He can hear, and I don’t have the frustration.
Dear Dr. Janet,
We’re extremely happy with my husband’s hearing aids. Life is so much more enjoyable now that I don’t have to repeat everything I say. Thank you Janet!
