I rec’d a mailing stating this man will be doing hearing evals in his Doylestown office in a couple of weeks. Allegedly, if you are one of the 31 individuals selected you will try out a Starkey hearing aid and if a hearing improvement is noted you can save up to 50% off MSRP. This also includes free in-office maintenance, a 2-year warranty and 40 free batteries per hearing aid.
I researched Ron Perkins online as it is in my nature to do so - especially when I am potentially going to be investing my hard-earned money. Interestingly, I came across a lawsuit from 11/03 in which he was sued for over $150,000 for leaving some of the mold impression material in the woman’s ear. I tried to find some reviews of the practice, Wetherill Hearing Aid Assocs (W.H.A.A.) online but could not find one.
I also found another article stating Ron was at another event 6/9/09 promoting another brand of hearing aid but only at a 40% discount.
Is anyone familiar with this man or W.H.A.A.?
Ironically, I had just seen the audiologist at my ENT’s office two days prior to receiving the mailing and almost fell out of the chair when she told me the Starkey model shw showed me was $2400 – an amount I cannot afford.
Am very new to this whole hearing deficit thing and am just trying to make sure I do not get scammed.
