I realized my hearing loss was bad when I constantly had to ask my grandkids to repeat themselves. While attending my grandkids ballgames, I couldn’t understand the people sitting next to me, and I couldn’t engage in conversations.

Before going to Sound Advice Hearing Doctors, I had visited two other hearing providers. Dr. Horne provided the most thorough hearing examination and best services. She treated me wonderfully, was great at explaining my test results and solutions, and she answered all my questions.

Since purchasing hearing aids from Sound Advice Hearing Doctors, Dr. Horne always spends quality one-on-one time with me to make the necessary adjustments and help me fix any problems. I can now hear my grandkids, better enjoy their ballgames and engage in conversations.

I constantly refer friends and family members to Dr. Horne and will continue to refer them.

My hearing loss was caused by a mortar during military service, in 1968. I didn’t realize how bad my hearing loss was affecting my life until visiting the VA in 1969. They said there was nothing they could do about my hearing loss, so I figured I’d have to live my whole life without being able to hear.

In January 2013, my wife told me “There’s a lot of new hearing technology out there”, so to appease her I went to Sound Advice Hearing Doctors. Dr. Rachel Horne made me feel like I was the only person in the world, and I could immediately see she was very passionate about helping me. I informed her, I wanted to hear the birds chirping and my cats’ meow (sounds I hadn’t heard in 40 years). She fit me with hearing aids and made several adjustments (over several weeks) to provide the best hearing clarity for my hearing loss and lifestyle.

Dr. Horne changed my life and stayed true to her promise. I can now hear the birds chirping, and my cats’ meow.   My wife doesn’t have to yell at me anymore, and I no longer read lips.

I would recommend Dr. Horne and Sound Advice Hearing Doctors to anyone. Dr. Horne has a passion for helping people. I like that Dr. Horne lives in Russellville, so she is always available to provide services to my hearing aids. You will not find a better person in the world to help you with your hearing.

The Lord sent her into my life so that I could have life.

I started noticing my hearing loss several years ago when I couldn’t hear frogs singing in the spring when others could. I made an appointment with Dr. Horne the day I attended the seminar. I was impressed as to the thoroughness and time she took to evaluate my hearing. Dr. Horne’s service has been great. She showed me how to use, maintain, insert and remove my hearing aids. I’ve had questions and she is always very eager to answer them, and because she lives in Russellville, she is always available. These are the first hearing aids I’ve ever tried and the experience has been good.

I would gladly refer my friends or family to Dr. Horne at Sound Advice Hearing Doctors. Her honesty is refreshing, and I believe she is what most people would expect to receive from a long-term hearing doctor relationship.

I have had hearing loss since I was a child, due to the measles. Later in life I went to a doctor in Little Rock who told me there wasn’t anything I could do for it at that time. A few years later I decided to try hearing aids from a place in Russellville. They never worked right. Every time I went back to have the hearing aids serviced or adjusted the provider was never there. I decided to see Dr. Horne after I had seen and met her around town multiple times. My appointment with Dr. Horne was the most thorough and detailed I had ever had. She explained my hearing loss and hearing aid options beyond anything I had previously experienced.

I now hear things I never heard before, allowing me to perform better at work and communicate better with my friends. I refer everyone to Dr. Horne because she is honest and provides expert care. She won’t sell you something you don’t need! Dr. Horne is always available to help if I need it.

Dr. Horne was great, and I’ve been very satisfied with my results and her services. I’ve already referred two friends to her.

Richard Wright, Russellville, AR
I’ve always been an avid hunter and shooter and had been experiencing hearing loss since high school. My wife finally told me I had to do something about my hearing loss and told me to schedule an appointment with Sound Advice Hearing Doctors. Dr. Horne provided me with a thorough hearing examination and clearly explained my results and solutions.

After being fit with hearing aids, I could hear instantly. I experience no background noise, and I can finally talk on the phone through my left ear with complete clarity (something I haven’t been able to do in years). My hearing aids have been perfect and unnoticeable. The only reason my clients know I’m wearing them is because they recognize the improvement in my hearing, and my better hearing has contributed to helping me within my career. I forget I’m even wearing my hearing aids and can’t live without them.

My experience and the services at Sound Advice Hearing Doctors have been great. Since Dr. Horne lives in Russellville, she is always there and quick to make any adjustments or fix any issues.

I constantly refer friends, co-workers and clients to Sound Advice Hearing Doctors Russellville and Dr. Rachel Horne.

I can highly recommend Dr. Rachel Horne. She has worked with my husband to make sure he has the hearing aids that are best for him. She went above and beyond the service he has received other places.

Maggie Sullivan, Russellville, AR
I am very happy with my hearing aids purchased from Dr. Horne. I noticed soon after wearing my hearing aids the tinnitus was better. I have been back to see Dr. Horne for specific adjustments to help me hear even better.

Thank you, Dr. Horne for making my hearing better!

Judy Brown, Plainview, AR
Right after purchasing my hearing aids, my mother became ill and was placed in the hospital. My new hearing aids were such a blessing. I was able to hear and understand the doctors and nurses during a very vital time.

      My hearing aids feel very natural in my ears. I can now hear students, and I don’t have to ask people to repeat themselves. It’s been really nice to hear and understand people’s prayers.

Dr. Horne provided great expertise, communication and service. Even though I immediately experienced a perfect fit, I know she is always available to make any adjustments or provide any services.

I would recommend Dr. Horne with Sound Advice Hearing Doctors Russellville to anyone.

If you’re looking for an Audiologist that will spend the time it takes to fit and adjust a set of hearing aids to your satisfaction, then Rachel is the one. She has adjusted my new aids more times than I can remember, without any sign of giving up. You need not look any further.

What I liked most about Dr. Rachel Horne at Sound Advice Hearing Doctors was the ease and simplicity of the whole process. You will be surprised how quick and easy it will be to find out what’s best for your hearing loss, what it will cost you, and it’s all done in a friendly and professional manner. Their hearing aid system is so easy to use. Many people have been surprised to learn that I am wearing hearing aids, because they had not noticed them.

Betty Moore, Russellville, AR:
My hearing loss was a gradual process, everyone kept telling me I needed to do something about it. I couldn’t hear my minister at church, I stopped attending movies, and I wasn’t comfortable in crowds. People started referring me to Dr. Horne, so my husband kept pushing me to see her. I gave in and was very impressed with her professional and comprehensive exam; it was top notch. She was very knowledgeable, warm, and honest. She genuinely cared about helping me. Dr. Horne spent a lot of time with me explaining my hearing loss and hearing aid options. She answered all my questions thoroughly, and is always available to help me with my hearing aids and provide adjustments.

I love my hearing aids, you can’t see them and I forget I even have them on. Now I can enter back into conversations. One reason I waited so long was because many people I know, who used other hearing providers, weren’t happy with their hearing aids; which made Dr. Horne’s ‘Try before you Buy’ the best part. I got to make sure they worked for me before putting any money down. I love mine, and I would highly recommend Dr. Horne to anyone experiencing hearing loss.

Professional service and patient care is excellent. We received an appointment quickly and both appointments were with minimal waiting. My Aunt is super pleased that she can hear again!!! Thanks Dr. Rachel Horne for your expertise!

I spent several years with another hearing aid company/provider with unsuccessful repeated trips to get them adjusted. Frustrated I began looking for another company/provider. The result was Dr. Rachel Horne.

I first met Dr. Horne while attending her hearing seminar. Dr. Horne had a very good presentation. She spoke in words I could understand. At the end of the seminar she invited us to sign up for a hearing test and a trial period using new hearing aids. My wife and I both signed up. On the day of the appointment, Dr. Horne tested us both. After the test, we sat and talked about the results. First, Dr. Horne told my wife she would like to maybe one day sell her some hearing aids, but she did not need them because her hearing was fine. I knew then that she was a young lady we could trust.

This resulted in my trying a new set of hearing aids; which I ultimately bought. I can hear! My wife is so happy I’m not asking, “What?” all the time. I recommended Dr. Horne to an old friend and he was very pleased with her services. We consider Dr. Horne a very good doctor and she and her husband, Stephen, good friends.

I had suspected I was experiencing hearing loss for years and finally one of my girlfriends got frustrated and blurted out, “Are you deaf?” That was the “icing on the cake” and it was time for me to do something about my hearing loss.

While at the Wellness Center, I asked everyone I know that wears hearing aids for recommendations. After being tested at three (3) other places in town, I chose to go see Dr. Horne. Her testing was the most thorough I had received. I was impressed with Dr. Horne’s knowledge and her willingness to make sure she found the right choice for my hearing loss. When fitting me with hearing aids she explained the functionality and expectations to me clearly. Dr. Horne is always available to help make adjustments or services to my hearing aids.

My hearing aids have allowed me to rejoin conversations and feel human again. Since hearing loss is usually a slow process, people compensate for what they miss. For me, that was a lot. I love being back on board with life.

My hearing loss had been ongoing for about 10 years. I was missing out on conversations, meetings, and my wife was constantly asking me to please turn down the TV. Five years ago, I visited a Beltone franchise while in Little Rock. The staff was unable to answer many of my questions and the experience was uncomfortable. I felt like they were simply salespeople and not patient focused.

I met Dr. Horne and her husband while attending a local event with my wife. I was immediately comfortable with Dr. Horne, and decided I would commit to doing something about my hearing loss. My wife kept telling me hearing aids would make me look old. After attending Dr. Horne’s seminar/presentation on hearing loss, my wife’s perspective on hearing aids also changed.

Dr. Horne’s testing was very thorough and completely different than my previous experience with Beltone five years ago. I knew she was patient driven and not a hearing aid salesperson. The service and my overall experience with Sound Advice Hearing Doctors have been great. Dr. Horne genuinely cares and it really shows through her skill. She wanted to ensure I received the right fit. I was given options and was able to try two different brands/manufactures of hearing aids in my everyday surroundings risk-free.

Since Dr. Horne lives in Russellville, she’s always available to service or adjust my hearing aids. Treating my hearing loss has been one of the best choices I’ve ever made. I refer a lot of people to Dr. Horne and Sound Advice Hearing Doctors.

Bruce Futterer, Russellville, AR
I was having trouble understanding my students at school, but what finally drove me to do something about my hearing loss was not being able to hear my grandchildren.

I was referred to Dr. Horne and Sound Advice Hearing Doctors by my physician. Dr Horne’s testing and evaluation was very thorough and comprehendible. Her staff immediately checked my insurance and helped me take advantage of my great hearing aid benefits.

Dr. Horne fit me with a pair of hearing aids and I’ve experienced immediate improvement in my hearing. I can now hear my students and most of all, my grandchildren. Plus, Dr. Horne has been great about making adjustments for me as I’ve gotten use to them.

I put off treating my hearing loss because my image of hearing aids was skewed. Once I realized how great the new technology was, it made treating my hearing loss a lot easier.

Roy Reeves, Russellville, AR
For the past 10 years I have been traveling to Little Rock, AR at least annually for hearing aid adjustments and exams. The appointments were difficult to make, and the audiologist was very inflexible. I was never happy with the results of the hearing devices or the service I had received. Thankfully a friend recommended me to Dr. Horne, after seeing her, my hearing has improved, and I have found her very eager to make the adjustments to even further enhance my hearing ability.

Dr. Horne’s testing was similar to the exams I have had before, only the consultation and explanations were more thorough. I felt I understood much better what was needed for the best results, along with what to expect from the hearing treatment. The hearing aids have improved the clarity of speech and sound, for that I am very grateful. They are exceptionally inconspicuous; therefor I have been very pleased with the appearance. Bottom line is I have
