Super warm fuzzies!

Visiting Pacific Northwest Audiology is always a happy experience. Everyone is so kind and accommodating. Dr. Li and her entire team are very patient-focused, with a huge emphasis in customer service. Not only do they use the most cutting edge tests and technology, they sit with their patients and talk through *everything* – even leveling directly and graciously with our 10 year old. Questions and feedback are welcomed. They are truly a fantastic collaborative health team.

My favorite doctor

Dr. Li is by far the most caring, knowledgeable doctor I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a patient since she first opened PNWA, and she has consistently been interested in figuring out and helping me with my unusual problem. A local ENT office told me I’d just have to live with it, and offered no help at all. Not Dr. Li – love her!

WOW!

I am a senior citizen. I have had MANY checkups, evaluations and care given for many things dealing with normal aging. I have NEVER in all that time encountered a more comprehensive and thorough exam or diagnosis. I would without any doubt or hesitation recommend or send my family or friends to Pacific Northwest Audiology for checkups or care. I am still amazed at the care I received!
