This note is intended for prospective clients who are in need of new hearing aids and may be considering Budget Hearing Centers. After working with Practitioner Paul Thulin of Budget and everything that went into selecting and being fitted with and now living for more than a month with Starkey's Muse 2400 model instruments, my advice is a strong "GO FOR IT".We found Paul to be a good listener who, after thorough testing, readily recognized my needs and preferences and reviewed with us our technology and price options. If there is one trait that stands our from working with Paul, it is that he insists that everything be as perfect as possible. In my case, I had some special needs and issues and Paul gave all the time needed over several appointments to make certain the product was fine-tuned and performing perfectly for my best hearing.My wife and daughter accompanied me through the process and join me in these comments.
I am a first time hearing aid user. I'm very happy with Budget Hearing Center. They are well worth the drive from Mankato. One thing that drew me to them is the wide selection of brands. Of course the lower prices were a factor also! Paul's knowledge and customer service are great!!!
Paul is by far the best hearing specialist I have been to in my almost 30 years of wearing hearing aids. After purchasing my most recent pair of hearing aids at a warehouse club I was very discouraged and went to Paul on the recommendation of my sister. I told him he was my last hope as I was avoiding large events due to my inability to understand conversation. Paul carried this brand and was able to make adjustments that the warehouse club employee is unable to do due to limitations on the club hearing aides. Paul spend a lot of time with me going over everything including the type of domes I used. These needed to be changed also.Everything he did was also at a very reasonable price!
My husband & I had our hearing checked. I needed aids and got the Unitron brand. Had them now for 2 mos and they are wonderful. Paul is excellent, thorough, & very pleasant. No high pressure. He answers all questions in an understandable manner. His prices are great. Go get your hearing tested by Paul!
So glad I found this place! I brought my mother-in-law here after she had gone to several planes in Rochester that wanted WAY more for a set of heading aids. She commented on how much more of a thorough exam Paul gave her... and then she was astounded at the prices- less than half of other places! And that's BEFORE she will submit it to her insurance and Medicare. Thank you Paul for making a way for our patents to be able to afford these on a fixed income! I will be tellng everyone I know about you!!
If I were Paul, I would change the name of his practice to AFFORDABLE Hearing Aids which they certainly are. I was astounded at the price of new digital hearing aids - of which being half of what I paid for my first pair from another supplier years ago. Paul spent a lot of time with me to understand my particular hearing loss, and he didn't try to sway me to one product over another. I highly recommend the practice.
I wish I had discovered Budget Hearing Centers a long time ago. Paul offers a wide range of hearing aids and accessories, and is committed to providing the technology at affordable prices. He spends whatever time it takes to get it all working just right, and will bring in experts from the manufacturer if that's needed. I am very happy with the aids and accessories that he recommended and programmed for me and recommend him highly. His convenient location and easy parking are an added plus.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I walked into Budget Hearing Centers office but experienced a warm, friendly welcome. After searching several locations that sold hearing aids looking for the best price this turned out to be the best. Absolutely no pressure to purchase after the hearing test and real concern for all of my questions and doubts made this a wonderful experience. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.
Very Professional and informative.
Just wanted to thank Budget Hearing for saving me some money on my hearing aid repair. My hearing aid was on the fritz and could not be repaired in their lab. The hearing aid was sent out for a repair quote and the price came back at $239.00. Budget thought the price was to high and sent it to another place and got the same repair quality for $150.00. Talk about extra mile.
