About Center for Hearing
“The motivation to create the area’s first and only private-practice audiology clinic came from the desire to provide a high level of service centered completely around the specific needs of our patients, while making our services affordable and convenient at the same time. We are dedicated to excellence in hearing health.
Our philosophy dictates that we serve each patient in a Christian and family-oriented environment where personal attention is the norm, not the exception.”
