See what people are saying about Audiology & Hearing Center of Cookeville and McMinnville

  • Dr. Norwood provided information I had never heard before, even in accompanying my mother for several visits to a myriad of specialists for her hearing. Dr Norwood took time, answered all questions, was truthful and very helpful. He obviously put my needs first. I was the priority – not making money. I am 100% satisfied!

    Barbara R.

  • I liked the nice way I was treated when I walked in and came out. No one could be nicer.

    Celiara Q.

  • I am so thankful I purchased the Oticon Intiga hearing aids. I work with small groups of students and felt sad when I had to ask them to repeat what they said. I often missed what family members and friends were saying and found myself laughing or responding while hoping I’d heard them correctly. From the moment I got them, I’ve worn the hearing aids every waking hour. It is so nice to be able to hear and not have to say, “What?” during every conversation. At Cookeville Audiology & Hearing Aids, Dr. Norwood provided a thorough exam and took the time to explain things in detail, and Gail has been so helpful and accommodating. My experience couldn’t have been better. Purchasing the hearing aids was an investment in my quality of life, and it has truly been worth every penny.
