“Thorough, competent, & technically knowledgeable”

This was my first visit here, after years of marginally satisfactory impersonal service at a previous audiologist in Sarasota. Dr Nalu and staff were thorough, competent, technically knowledgeable and above all, caring about my hearing situation. My wife is happy that I have a new audiologist!

- Richard M.

“100% satisfied”

100% satisfied, Dr Nalu and the entire staff were profesional, knowledgeable, and made my wife and I totally comfortable throughout the entire experience. My wife absolutely loves her new Resound Qutro 9 hearing aids.We also acquired a TV box that I needed to contact Resound customer service to install. 5 stars for their customer service department, also. We highly recommend Adept Audiology.

“Dr. Lyndsey goes the extra mile”

I highly recommend Adept Audiology. Dr. Lyndsey is a very caring and knowledgeable audiologist. I have known her for years. I’ve been wearing hearing aids since I was 5 years old so I’m very particular about who I work with and trust. She worked with me until we found the right hearing aids for me. Dr. Lyndsey goes the extra mile even after your initial purchase. I love the convenience of her Lakewood Ranch office.

“Adept Audiology helped improve my home life”

Just moved from NJ with a pair of hearing aids that were not functional at all, to the point where I stopped wearing them.At the urging of my wife I called Adept Audiology, was tested, diagnosed, and I am now the proud owners of hearing aids that actually work!!!

The Doctor and her staff are very professional, knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable.
The call to Adept Audiology helped improve my home life as now my wife doesn’t have to repeat things multiple times or scream at me.
Thank you Doctor and your very capable staff.

“Such nice women, a pleasure to work with”

Dr. Nalu is wonderful. She really knows and understands hearing issues in us older adults. Love the hearing aids she recommended. I find them comfortable to wear–I forget I have them on. I especially liked that she introduced a bit more about them at each subsequent visit instead of overwhelming me with all the details at one sitting. Eve, her secretary/receptionist is equally helpful and knowledgeable about hearing aids. She is able to fix, repair and replace batteries, battery doors, ear pieces easily. All in all a very positive experience for me. Such nice women, a pleasure to work with.
