In 2004, the UNC Hearing and Communication Center was established at the intersection of Farrington Road and Highway 54. Our convenient, off-campus location makes access to comprehensive audiology care even easier. Each of our five licensed audiologists is also a professor in UNC’s Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences. As a teaching clinic, the UNC HCC prides itself in evidence-based methods of care, which are proven to provide patients with the most effective communication. We utilize the newest research and cutting edge technology in every aspect of treatment.
We look forward to working with you, wherever you are in your hearing journey! Whether you are seeking help for the first time or have worn hearing aids for years, the UNC HCC is dedicated to providing individualized, comprehensive and compassionate hearing care for each and every patient.
