Real Patient Reviews
“It has been a pleasure to work with John over the years. He has been sensitive to my needs, as well as being up on the latest products in the field of hearing aids. I have given his name to many friends, colleagues and relatives, and they too have found satisfaction.”
"From the day I called to the day I walked into the office for my appointment, Dawn greeted me with a friendly "hello" and a smile. She's been extremely helpful in answering all my questions. Derick, the Hearing Aid specialist, spent so much time explaining all the test results to my husband and myself. He made us feel very comfortable with all his knowledge and compassion. Dawn and Derick made us feel like we were definitely part of the family. I love that I can hear again and so does everyone else around me. The hearing aids are so easy to use and very comfortable. Thank you Hoglund family! "
"I would recommend this lunch and learn seminar to your friends and family because it is very informative. The workshop was excellent. The speakers were very knowledeable and covered every ear problem possible. They also explained everything in laymans language which made it easy to understand. My knowledge about hearing has dramatically improved after attending the Seminar."
“The seminar was very informative - I learned a lot about hearing loss and tinnitus since I was concerned about it and dementia. The seminar covered information that was helping and made me understand Tinnitus and how to cope with this condition.”
It was really interesting learning of the emotional and brain trying to compensate for the hearing loss. The information was helping in understanding tinnitus. As a spouse of a person with tinnitus, I can be more sensitive to his condition.”
“The information that was covered was informative and very helpful in understanding Tinnitus and hearing loss. They provided me with information that I had not heard before. John is an above average speaker and knows his topics very well. I have learned so much from him and I’m pleased to have come to the seminar.”
“I would recommend this seminar to my friends and family because it’s an opportunity to have hope. They covered every topic that I was seeking information about and the material was presented in an effective format for learning about hearing loss. ”
“Just to know that there is hope out there is enough. The information and explanations were simple and not too technical for the average Joe and my knowledge about hearing after the seminar was dramatically improved. I have read books on tinnitus but your information and procedures opened up a whole new world.”
“Excellent Tinnitus Presentation today! I am so glad I came. I expected an extended sales pitch, but got a very good overview of hearing and tinnitus problems with a description of a treatment protocol and recommended product. Well done!”
I want to tell you how thrilled I have been the last year and a half with Hoglund Family Hearing and Dr. Dornton. In the spring of 2017 I attended several seminars on hearing at Lee Health's Coconut Point location and you far exceeded the other presenters with your knowledge, information and understanding of what the attendees needed. Your warm relaxed (no sales pressure) style impressed me so I made my first appointment at your Metro location with Dr. Dornton.
After our consultation and extensive hearing test, I bought my Wydex hearing aids. I have been very impressed with Dr. Dornton's concern for my needs, her in-depth knowledge and care over that time. She answers my questions, analyzes the data and adjusts where needed, and her followup is always very prompt. I enjoy coming in every 3 months for a check and cleaning and the annual hearing test keeps us both on top of my progress. My friend Glee Duff got an earful (sorry for the pun) of my praises when I told him about Hoglund. His daughter Cynthia had already urged him to see Dr. Dornton. I enjoy telling others about Hoglund and Dr. Dornton.
Dr. Dornton is a tremendous asset to your practice and at Thanksgiving time, I am very thankful for her care and friendship. I wish you, your team and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Your happy patient and fan, Kathy Caldwell
I have had my hearing aids for over a year. I was extremely hesitant to get them, even though I had a real problem with tinnitus & hearing. My family kept urging me to go to a hearing specialist.
To make a long story short, I chose South West Florida Tinnitus & Hearing Center. The folks there were great, starting with Inge, the receptionist all the way through John Hoglund, Derick & Barbara.
It is through their efforts that my tinnitus was taken care of and my hearing aids and the great after sale service, have been a life saver.
OCTOBER, 2018 – I have been hearing impaired over 25 years (As musician sitting in front of amplifiers and in the bowling business for 35 years) and have purchased and worn for both ears five traditional sets of hearing aids (first four sets Miracle Ear Aids and Last Set COSTCO Aids) over those 25 years. None ever made hearing 100% normal. The problem always was the noisy backgrounds and the clarity of what I heard. Just raising the volume of the hearing aids made clarity even worse. It definitely prevented me from social conversation and visiting with people or even going for coffee and doughnuts after Mass. I could no longer attend church seminars or attend the men’s weekly Monday morning Bible Reading sessions. I could not understand the many priests who did Homilies just before Communion even sitting in the first pew closest to them. It truly was awful. There are at a minimum 9 different wave sounds from high treble to low bass sounds in everyone’s ears. Of course people without hearing loss hear a perfect balanced combination of all those wave lengths in their ears. A hearing loss person doesn’t have that balance so hearing aids if adjusted to that wave length imbalance and with the volume raised just right, that will be the best that person will hear. My hearing loss was severe so perfect clarity was impossible with all 5 sets of those earlier hearing aids. The last set I bought at COSTCO for $2,400 and they too could not give me better clarity so I could understand people talking to me, the TV, Church socials and seminars, Priest Homilies, etc. I had to rent movies with Subtitles and have all my TV programs have the Subtitle option on. Then things changed dramatically for the better when I went to Hoglund Family Hearing And Audiology Center in Bonita Springs (Phone Number 239-498-7142) off Coconut Road and met John Hoglund the owner. John gave me one of the most thorough and best hearing tests I’ve ever had. He fitted me and adjusted a set of STARKEY hearing aids model MUSE 1Q 1.2400 ITE. These hearing aids have 4 different sound programs each adjusted accordingly to what my hearing needs are, my example: !st Level NORMAL (I hear just what everyone else hears), 2nd Level MEETING (The volume and treble wave sounds are heightened for better hearing clarity in noisy environments) 3rd Level MUSIC (Since Joan and I put on musical shows from time-to-time, this level is set so I hear exactly what my keyboard and Joan’s singing and saxophone playing is sounding like to the audience) 4th Level is the most exciting and will definitely improve ones social life AUDIO LOOP (Newest technology – example, my church St. John XXIII in Ft. Myers, is just about complete in building a huge Community Center where seminars, club meetings, Bible Classes will be taught, social parties and dances held, etc. Around the entire room an AUDIO LOOP has been installed which means to the hearing impaired people like me with the new Hearing Aids programmed for the Audio Loop, when any mike is turned on and people are talking into it, their voices will automatically be transferred to the Audio Loop and people like me will turn on the Audio Loop level (mine is the 4th one) in our hearing aids and for the first time in history, I and others with the same hearing aids will hear the voice of the person speaking right in our ears where we will hear better than normal people. This is a wireless system, WOW! Other optional aids available to improve your listening quality:I purchased the SURF LINK TV Hearing Aid, when plugged into the TV and turned on, by hitting the STAR (on the hand held REMOTE that also is optional) automatically the sound coming from the TV goes directly into my ears and I can adjust the volume to suit me, and my wife can adjust the volume to her ears. I can go to the bathroom or kitchen and the sound from the TV follows me. It truly is FANTASTIC!
