Share Article

Healthy Hearing interviews highlight hearing centers around the U.S. providing excellent care to their patients.

'Hearing aids are not like they used to be,' Norvell said. 'They bring you back in touch with life. They make your life better. You're not isolated. You're part of life again.'

Healthy Hearing is an informative website providing articles, news, help pages and an extensive directory of more than 4,700 independent hearing clinics complete with reviews from real patients.

In addition to informative articles and help pages, Healthy Hearing interviews hearing centers across the United States to deliver additional information on local clinicians and hearing healthcare professionals.

The following four centers were showcased recently on Healthy Hearing. The professionals at these four clinics are not only mastering the ability to multitask the demands at their clinics, but also to provide quality and personal hearing care to each and every one of their patients.

Hill Country Hearing, LLC, is family owned and operated, serving three different cities in Texas. Audiologist Barbara Norvell, a member of the American Academy of Audiology, leads the three clinics and strives to show her patients what a difference in quality of life hearing aids can make for someone. "Hearing aids are not like they used to be," Norvell said. "They bring you back in touch with life. They make your life better. You're not isolated. You're part of life again."

Novell and her team also pride themselves on the relationships they maintain with their patients from the moment they walk through the door, to years after selecting a hearing device.

The Advanced Audiology & Hearing Aid Services out of Bellingham, Wash., has been providing hearing healthcare since 2006. Led by Jayna Williams-Neuman, the care received by patients at Advanced Audiology & Hearing Aid Services extends outside the office’s four walls. Williams-Neuman knows the importance of teaching patients how to communicate again once they receive their hearing device, so she and the team go the extra mile to ensure her patients not only understand their new technology, but also how to integrate it into their lives as well. Williams-Neuman attributes her ability to connect with patients to her own hearing loss.

Dr. Julie Prutsman is the founder and leader of Sound Relief Hearing Center. With the help of her husband Patrick, she opened and operates two clinics in Colorado. Dr. Julie always knew she wanted to pursue something which allowed her to help individuals medically, but immediately knew she found the right field when she first helped to fit someone with a hearing device. In addition to her passion in helping her patients hear better, Dr. Julie works to educate her patients not only on how to manage their hearing devices, but how to get the most out of them. With six members in her family in the audiology field, she understands the responsibility needed to maintain and appreciate a hearing device.

Conveniently located in central New Mexico, Albuquerque Hearing Associates relies on founder Carol Clifford for day-to-day operations of the clinic, in addition to confirming patients are receiving the best possible care available to them. With more than 30 years in the audiology business, Clifford has developed a diverse set of skills from her numerous roles. With experience in independent, private, public and hospital hearing centers, Clifford feels her skill set allows her to help her patients make the most informed decision from the best selection of options. In addition to her various skills, Clifford also remains current on technology trends in order to offer the best devices available to her patients.
