Our ProfessionalsAbout Us
Choosing a hearing professional is one of the most important decisions you can make when you are addressing a hearing issue. We treat you as you deserve and want to be treated. You will never be referred to as a customer or client. You are a patient seeking professional advice and help for a hearing impairment. Proper hearing aid selection and fitting is highly dependent on the judgment and skill of the professional selecting the instrument. Dr. Jennifer Elfert has the knowledge, skills and bedside manner that many medical professionals are lacking.
We offer expert care based on your individual needs. With a comprehensive array of hearing services, we're here to evaluate, rehabilitate, and prevent hearing impairment. In addition, we offer evaluation and treatment of communication disorders.
