My experience at the Marion Downs Center has been amazing! Dr. Kronen is the most personable, caring care provider I have worked with. Living on a limited income, he was able to help connect me to DVR for financial assistance for my hearing aids. As a non-profit, the center is able to support folks from many different backgrounds and socioeconomic levels. So grateful!

From start to finish my experience with Marion Downs Center was exceptional. They made getting my first set of hearing aids a breeze. What could have been overwhelming was anything but.

Dr. Kronen and the Marion Downs Center Team are kind, conscientious, and knowledgeable! As a working musician, my hearing and aural health is extremely important— they take it just as seriously. They have specific resources and test(s) for professionals more at-risk for hearing loss. I will definitely be going back at least annually to ensure I’m on top of it. 🙌🏼 Thank you to the team!

I cannot speak highly enough of the Marion Downs Center! This organization is dedicated to helping their patients hear and therefore communicate effectively in the world. I took my grandfather to see Dr. Caleb Kronen, who performed several hearing tests and then was able to tune and make (major) adjustments that greatly benefitted my grandfather. Caleb’s knowledge is superb, and he is very easy to talk to. The front desk and other staff we interacted with were kind and effective! I’d highly recommend Marion Downs Center (and already have to several family friends) to anyone who needs hearing assistance. 10/10!

Dr. Caleb Kronen is the best audiologist you could ask for. Warm, friendly, empathetic, and a champion for those with hearing loss and in need of assistive devices. He always makes you feel truly welcomed, and never rushes you out when you have questions. The Marion Downs Center, in general, provides phenomenal testing and care. Wonderful staff, state-of-the-art equipment, clean and pleasant facility. There's absolutely nothing I'd change about this place, except for the fact that I wish every individual on the planet had access to a place like this.

Caleb was amazing at treating me. He took his time, was kind, and genuinely curious about my hearing loss journey. I was able to get custom earplugs made to help preserve my hearing as a musician. I left feeling elated and would recommend Marion Downs to anyone curious about preserving their hearing!

I'm a patient of Dr. Caleb Kronen's at The Marion Downs Center. I have been treated by him for multiple years, and he's one of the best provider's (if not the best) that I've ever had. He's both incredibly knowledgeable and incredibly kind. I'd had some negative experiences in the past, and I'm beyond thankful to have found him! The Marion Downs Center in general has been fantastic. They are all very friendly and helpful, and their office is clean and comfortable. I recommend them every chance I get!!

Dr Caleb Kronen is absolutely the best audiologist a person could ask for. I have had a hearing disability my entire life I cannot be more grateful and thankful that I wound up under this man’s care. I have been through many audiologists some good and some bad. Dr Caleb Kronen however is a gem of a find. He is insanely knowledgeable about audiology, has the same hearing loss I have, and has a heart of gold. If you wind up under his care consider yourself a very lucky duck.
