Physicians Hearing Center (PHC) is one of the many divisions of ENTcare and that gives our hearing center an advantage over others. Since 1977, our team of audiologists and physicians has been committed to giving patients the best hearing health care possible. Our staff consits of two audiologists, one hearing instrument specialist, five otolaryngologists, and an excellent support team. Whenever an audiologist sees that medical treatment is necessary, she immediately notifies one of our physicians. This allows for the most comprehensive treatment and care in the tri-state area.
