I've been a client of Dr. Lafargue for almost 30 years. Even though my hearing loss progressed from moderate to profoundin that period of time, she keeps me communicating.

Dr Lafargue was on time with her appointment and very professional. She took the time to explain hearing aid options and answered all concerns. I felt at ease with her and decided to go with her to get my hearing aid. She was sensative to my needs and I recommend her services to all.
