“Many of life’s greatest joys come in the simplest forms— a gathering with friends, a walk through the neighborhood, or the sounds of laughter. These joys need not and should not be diminished due to hearing issues. Hearing connects people and helps build relationships. I enjoy being able to improve a person’s quality of life, not only for that individual, but also for those around them. It’s very satisfying for me to see my patients regain their lives and enhance their relationships at home, in the workplace, and socially. As an audiologist, each day presents another opportunity to change someone's life; what could be better than that?” - Joseph B. Turbeville, Ph.D.
We strive to be "the best that we can be" in providing hearing aid services in order that our patients can be "the best that they can be" and enjoy life to the fullest!
