Finally, at age 77 I decided to bite the bullet and get a hearing aid. Boy, am I glad I did! The improvement in my hearing was remarkable from the minute I put them on. Dramatic results with no problems of whistles or feedback which I often heard about over the years. The new technology is totally revolutionary.
I returned to Manna today for my 30-day followup appointment and Dr.Wright increased my reception by two decibels. I already thought it was perfect! Wow!
I went out for dinner with my daughter last night to a popular restaurant with a very busy noisy Happy Hour going on at the bar. It was quite loud but I was perfectly able to have a comfortable and clear conversation with her at the table. No trouble hearing at all.
The staff at Manna is welcoming and very professional. They treat you like family. It has been an altogether wonderful experience. Don't postpone--go in for a test and a tryout. You will be glad you did.
Thank you for the outstanding help you have given me on my hearing problem. Dr. Wright spent the time initially explaining to me my problem. It is obvious now when I remove the hearing aids Dr. Wright recommended. I found each visit extremely informative and helped me adjust to my improved hearing. Everyone is personable and helpful making each visit a pleasant experience. The technology is unbelievable, especially the bluetooth connectivity. Manna Audiology has made this step in my life easier than I expected. I recommend them to anyone who need hearing improvement.
Exceptional care and service. Dr Wright is very thorough and one of the most knowledgeable ear specialists I have been to. The office staff is very polished and patient oriented. Dr. Wright spent a lot of time consulting with me. There's no big medical center feel. I would recommend to my friends and family.
If you’re looking for honesty in purchasing hearing aids, Manna is where you want to go.I took my 89 year old dad, who has hearing aids from the Veterans Administration, to see if new hearing aids would improve his ability to hear. Dr. Wright was so kind to him. He did all the testing without charge, and although he could have sold him new hearing aids, he told my dad that new ones wouldn’t improve his hearing significantly and that he would be better off just to keep the ones he had. Thank you Dr. Wright and staff for your compassion and integrity!
In October 2012 my 89 year old mother awakened one morning and described what sounded like a lot of locust buzzing in her ears and then her hearing was gone.
My mother so enjoys life and loves music, talking and laughing with friends and etc. and this was gone.
I immediately took her to her regular doctor who set her up to see an Eye, Ear and Throat specialist. This specialist saw her and sent her home for 30 days to see if anything would change. She had to pay him for that expert advice. HE DID NOTHING!!
After 30 days she sought the advice of a second Eye, Nose and Throat specialist. His recommendation was to inject steroids into her ears. I thought … are you crazy? I got my mother into my car and I drove her directly to Manna Audiology in Matthews, NC. I had seen their office and decided it was worth a visit.
“Manna Audiology Hearing Center has been helping people improve the quality of their lives in Matthews, Charlotte and surrounding areas for over a decade.

At this point my mother had been without hearing for over 6 weeks. Enough was enough.
At Manna Audiology she was seen by Dr. Kurt Wright, Au. D. and he is Audigy Certified. He spent almost two hours testing my mother and fitting her for hearing aids. He is very attentive as well as very warm and caring. What was best for my mother was his goal.
My heart melted when Dr. Wright was fitting her for the hearing aids and she heard for the first time in weeks. Her eyes lit up and she was all smiles. I had my mother back!!
Her hearing aids are worth every cent, for she has been given the gift of hearing. She is again enjoying her life!!
If you are having hearing difficulties you need to contact Manna Audiology. They are the best!!

“I am very pleased with my new hearing. Initially, I was overwhelmed with the loud sounds. Now, I really enjoy hearing sounds such as birds, cars on the road, rain of the roof, and people talking. I can even understand what they are saying.”

“I was in complete denial concerning my hearing loss. I knew that I could not hear well, but I had convinced myself that most people spoke softly and mumbled a lot. But I was so wrong! My hearing loss was affecting my performance at work. With my work being so very important to me, I knew that I had to do something. When you can’t hear, you can’t perform no matter how much you are trying to fake it. What an unbelievable experience I had when I finally made an appointment with Dr. Wright at Manna Audiology. This man spent 2 hours with me and gave me the choice of what type of hearing instrument would be best for me. No one will ever know how very much I felt like a little boy on Christmas morning when he fit me with hearing aids, connected them to the computer, and I could honestly, really hear. I left his office and I truly could have walked on air. I would highly recommend to all my family and friends and to anyone who is “missing so much” to be tested by Dr. Wright at Manna Audiology, because it has absolutely changed my life. You will never regret it!

“Dear Brothers, I would love to thank you for your cooperation in obtaining for me new hearing aids. I am so pleased with them. There are nine channel devices that can be reprogrammed if the need arises. They were prescribed and fit by Dr. Wright M.A., CCC-A Manna Audiology Hearing Center. If you should need help hearing I highly recommend this company.”
“My life has changed so much for the better since I discovered Manna Audiology. For years I relied solely on reading lips or just keeping to myself. Since Kurt spent the time with me and I’ve learned what I needed in such an understandable way, I have come alive again. I smile so much more because I hear so much more. It’s like being born again. I am so proud of my hearing aids that I show them to everyone. It’s changed so much of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Wright and Annette for making me feel like a family members. Coming to the office is such a thrill. I look forward to my next visit. Keep up the great work!! Manna will always be a part of me now.”

“I spent many years struggling with my hearing loss. I was actually afraid that when my husband proposed I wouldn’t hear him. I had trouble hearing my grandchildren on the telephone and in person. One day a postcard came in the mail from Manna Audiology. I made up my mind to come in for a hearing test (this is not a scary experience). I am so relieved that I can hear well. When I come in for “check ups” it’s like coming here to visit friends. I recommend Manna to anyone I can- it’s great! Dr. Wright and Annette are wonderful and warm. Manna Audiology is a real blessing.”

“These hearing aids are wonderful. I don’t even know they are in my ears until I go to bed and have to remove them.”

“My mother got her first hearing aid at the age of 95. At that age, we find it harder to change our rituals and learn new things. Dr. Wright is so patient with my mother. He is patient when, honestly, I find it hard to be patient myself. He treats her with the utmost respect and he tailors his treatment to her ability to adapt, and makes her feel comfortable at all times. He does a great job of explaining why he does what he does, and makes sure we both understand. The hearing aids themselves have transformed her life. She had checked out of daily conversation because she couldn’t hear. At the dinner table, if there were a lot of people talking, you could tell that she wasn’t there. Now, she is part of the dinner conversation and talking with her is so nice and easy. I actually had to learn not to yell! The office is run with efficiency, the staff are all extremely nice, and the results simply speak for themselves. Thank you, Dr. Wright, for making my mother’s life richer at 95!”
