About Our Hearing Clinic
“Helping you stay connected to your world” isn’t just a fancy catch phrase. It’s been our passion/mission from the very beginning.
A few years ago, my wife, Kim, came to me, distraught. Her active grandmother, who always enjoyed going to church and spending time with friends, confessed that she didn’t go out much anymore. She wasn’t the bright spirit that she used to be because “everyone mumbles.” She didn’t think that she had a hearing problem—she could hear people talking, she just couldn’t understand them.
I worked for a hearing-aid manufacturer at the time, so the problem seemed easy to solve. One phone call later a state-of-the-art model was on its way. Kim was happy and I didn’t think any more about it.
A few months later, Kim came to me again, this time completely elated. Her grandmother was back in church and visiting with friends. She was back to being vivacious again, full of fun and energy. “That hearing aid opened up her world,” Kim told me. I suddenly realized that we weren’t building hearing devices, we were changing lives. I needed to get closer to the people we were helping—I wanted to be part of that experience.
A Bumpy Road
In 2008 our dream came true and Kim and I began to work with Hearing Healthcare Centers. We loved our jobs, getting to know the customers and hearing the stories and making so many new friends. Then In 2010, we had the opportunity to become the owners of Hearing Healthcare Centers in North Carolina (and now also in Rock Hill, SC.)
I knew there was only one thing to do. We took a deep breath and boldly moved forward.
Jumping In With Both Feet
Kim and I bought the three North Carolina offices.
Today we have four offices and our business is thriving. It seems like people enjoy being listened to and having their needs come before ours. I’m proud that Kim and I can be living examples of old-fashioned values—like hard work and treating patients fairly.
We love our daily purpose. Every day that goes by I hear another story of how we’ve changed someone’s life for the better. That’s what I envisioned when we made the jump. And that’s what I hope to do for you.
