"I just wanted to say thank you! I have been so blessed by your care and concern for me over these past many, many years.
I am glad you were my surgeon. It's just been really nice knowing that I had the best. And that the best has always had the best in mind for me. The comfort and peace you give me is immeasurable.

"I am so pleased with this office--Indy and Mooresville. I have been treated so well. I feel that Dr. Hicks & Jennifer have helped me get my hearing back. Dr. Hicks will always be highly recommended by me to others.... I am a respiratory therapist & I was having so much trouble functioning at work. I thought I was going to have to give it up. This hurt me greatly because I love what I do & I feel I have been given a gift to help others. Dr. Hicks helped me to get this back & I am so thankful to him for this. Jennifer helped me to get my hearing back to a place that I never thought it would be again. It took many trips to the office & much patience on her part to help me achieve the best hearing that I could regain with my hearing aid. The office staff have always been caring & understanding. So thank you to each & everyone of you who have touched my life & helped me....."
