After reading all the reviews and seeing Lifestyle was voted best of Charlotte County for many, many years I decided this was the only place to go, even after considering Costco, for my new hearing aids. The owner, Mario, an Air Force Veteran, asked about my problems, gave me a hearing test, explained results, and made recommendations. And I didn’t even have an appointment!
No high pressure, no trying to upsell me, just a very interesting and informative 1 hour meeting. You will need to decide what your requirements are but I am sure you will be happy you chose Lifestyle for your new hearing aids. Oh, and this is posted by James not Barbara Regan.
After several years with 2 different nationally affiliated hearing aid companies and one other independant who went out of business I came across Marco and Lifestyle shortly after he had opened the Port Charlotte location.
He kept the hearing aids, which I had bought from the other place running for about 2 years.
At first, when he and subsequently they, would clean them he wouldn't take any payment saying "there will come a time when you need new ones".
Well I did and now, about 5 years later, I'm on my second pair from Lifestyle and, even though I frequently check prices (no other independant or even the internet comes close) and other places offerings, I am a dedicated Lifestyle Hearing customer.
Therefore- - - 5 STARS.
Spends a lot of time tweeking to your personal needs. Loaned me new hearing aids for four weeks, while personalizing each week with above and beyond manufacturer's suggested "customization. Highly recommend Marco's professionalism and ability. Very unusual service for this industry. You will use your hearing aids and appreciate them.
I went to a couple of hearing aid specialists including an opthamologist before going to Life Style in Port Charlotte, Florida. The service, hearing exams and prices are the best in our area. The MD charged over $4000.00 for two Sonic computerized hearing aids and it was less than half that at Life Style for the exact same brand and model. Be sure to shop around and include Life Style as one of your sources.
After purchasing the hearing aids, I was amazed the difference in my hearing. These smart gadgets only amplify the sound frequencies that I have lost. The follow-up service is excellent and I recommend this to all my friends. Definitely Five Stars!
