About Us

Our Practice & Core Values

We believe in being proactive about health and understanding the value of quality of life. Knowing that untreated hearing loss can be associated with a  lower quality of life has led us to try to find not just any solution to treat hearing loss – but solutions that are tailored to fit our patients needs. Why? Everyone is unique and so is their hearing. We want to walk people with hearing loss on a journey to better hearing. 

What we do:

  • Complimentary Hearing Screenings
  • 3D Ear Scans ( OtoScan )
  • Hearing Device Maintenance
  • Expert hearing aid advice
  • Hearing aid support

Meet Ryan Kabel

Hi There!  My name is Ryan Kabel.  I am licensed by the State of Alabama and Nationally Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences.  I have been helping people find customized hearing solutions for 20 years.  It all began when I starting making custom hearing aids in my Dad’s lab, when I was 15 years old.  I enjoy regular exercise and healthy living with my wife, of 19 years,  and our 4 children.  Spending 100’s of hours annually in volunteer work in our community is a highlight to my life in addition to the free service we are able to give those in our community who are not able to afford better hearing.  Anytime I can get in a kayak or on my bicycle is a good day!

You will be amazed at what I can do using the latest Real Ear Measurement techniques!

Very professional and helping me adjust to hearing wha tI've been missing. Thanks again!

What can I expect at a hearing screening?

You can expect friendly staff, Starbucks Coffee and fresh baked cookies for you to enjoy while you are in the waiting area. Once your appointment begins we will discuss the hearing screening process with you and answer any questions you may have. After the screening is performed and results are discussed we will gladly discuss any questions you may have.

How do I get fitted for hearing aids?

We use a 3D scan called an Otoscan to help make sure your hearing aids fit comfortably. This is a mess free alternative to the typical silicone-based filling that is used to create a mold.

Another bonus: you get to see a 3D image of your ear on a screen right in front of you!

Can I try a hearing aid before purchasing?

Yes! We allow you to demo the technology we have on hand to see if it is a good fit for you. Call us if you have more questions about our demo hearing aids.

Are there affordable options?

Absolutely! We have refurbished hearing aids available for purchase and we also have leasing options, ranging from $100 – $185/month for premium hearing aids, new every 4 years!

How do I care for my hearing aids?

To make sure you are getting the best out of your hearing aids, we suggest you come in every 3 months for a maintenance appointment! You can text, call or book online. If you have any questions – we’re here to help!
