Hearing aid recommendation saves the day

Sarah posted on the Shelburne Front Porch Forum yesterday…

I recently posted to FPF in search of recommendations for audiologists as my hearing aid had broken and I was looking for a second opinion. My current provider had suggested a hefty fee to fix my broken hearing aid and was going so far as to say that it needed replacement. Given the costs involved I believed it was wise to seek additional advice.

I received multiple replies to my post and I met with Dr. Julie Bier of Better Living Audiology in South Burlington. Lo and behold my hearing aid did not need to be replaced and the replacement part was substantially, read significantly, less than my (now former) practitioner was quoting. Thanks to Front Porch Forum I saved a considerable amount of money and have met a wonderful new physician!



Dog recommends sitter

Thousands of recommendations flow through Front Porch Forum.  But yesterday on the Middlebury FPF we saw our first recommendation made by a dog, submitted by human Christine:

This is an easy recommend. Debbie was recommend by FPF and also by a friend. She wanted to meet our dog before she came to care for him, so he wouldn’t be surprised. My dog highly recommends Debbie.
