“Dr. Romero has been instrumental in enhancing the quality of my life. I was in a state of despair after hearing loss did not allow me to enjoy certain aspects of my life. After being referred to her by my primary care provider, she explained to me the nature of my inability to hear certain sounds. She explained that technology exists that could help with my hearing loss. After consultation over a period of time, she was able to fine tune hearing aids that allowed me to enjoy music, theater and other pleasures that had been robbed from me by hearing loss. Though the hearing aids seemed expensive, her explanation of the various technological levels of the aids kept me from purchasing more than necessary. I am grateful for her help. Though I wish that I had never experienced hearing loss, her service to me has restored much of what had been lost.” Michael Lundmark
