Audiology & Hearing Aid Center started in 1981 in a 400-square foot office. The waiting room was so small that if there were more than two people in the waiting room, often the third person would stand outside. For the first few years, I operated my practice part-time and continued to work for a group of ENT doctors providing audiology services. Soon I realized, no business can operate successfully on a part-time basis. So, I left my day job and committed myself full time to my practice. That was more than 32 years ago. Luckily, we moved out of the 400-square foot office within five years to our original office, located in downtown Scottsdale with 1600-square feet on Civic Center Plaza. This office relocated in 2016 to 3301 N. Miller Road in Scottsdale to provide a more updated atmosphere.
I opened another office in North Scottsdale in the early 90’s, moving to our permanent North location at 91st and Mountain View Road in 2001. Since I felt I was not busy enough, I opened a third office in the Grayhawk area for easy access off the freeway. It is right off the 101 and Scottsdale Road; 21803 N. Scottsdale Rd, #125B Scottsdale. Traveling to these offices every week has been a way of life for a long time. I do not try to see all my patients myself and have a staff of wonderful audiologists that many of you have had the opportunity to see for various audiologic services. This office relocated in 2017 to 7699 E. Pinnacle Peak Rd. in Scottsdale to provide a more updated atmosphere.
As all who have been to any of our locations will know, we strive to provide the best services and patient care. As new technology evolves, all our audiologists are thoroughly trained to provide our patients with the best hearing instruments that technology has to offer. The follow-up care we provide for the life of any hearing instrument is also a critical part of the success for each of our patients. Education through our seminars is our commitment to the community. For those with limited finances, we work with several programs that assist us in helping our patients receive the benefits of better hearing through the best possible hearing instruments.
Whether your goals are to achieve better hearing, obtain hearing protection to prevent noise induced hearing loss, or to determine the cause and find treatment for a balance or dizziness problem, I hope you will choose the Audiology & Hearing Aid Center and recommend us to a friend or family member.
