Dr. Ed Szumowski has been the owner of West Michigan Hearing Services since 1985. Prior to that time he worked as an audiologist for a hearing aid dispensing service in Detroit, Michigan. He graduated with a Bachelors degree from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor with a major in Pre-Medicine. Subsequently he attended Wayne State University in Detroit, where he received a Masters degree in Audiology. He completed the Doctor of Audiology degree at the George S. Osborne College of Audiology at Salus University (formerly known as the PCO School of Audiology). He received the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A), and is Board Certified by the American Board of Audiology. He has received the American Academy of Audiology Scholar Award several times, in recognition of his continuing education endeavors.
He has a special interest in the hearing and communication difficulties of older adults, and in the problems faced by individuals with tinnitus. Dr. Szumowski takes pride in the fact that he has helped over 6000 individuals overcome the limitations of hearing impairment.
He has been married to his wife Marcia since 1976, and is the father of two adult children. His hobbies include reading, fishing, hiking, and biking.
West Michigan Hearing Services was started by Dr. Szumowski in 1985, having purchased the company previously known as Maico Hearing Aid Service from Clint Scobey. Maico Hearing Aid Service dated back to the 1940's, and we take pride in the number of patients who have been loyal to our company for all of these years. We have some patients who have used hearing aids for over 50 years, and have never gone to any other provider than us!
When Dr. Szumowski decided to begin his business, his vision was to build a practice small enough to maintain a highly personal relationship with his patients. He really had no grandiose ideas of multiple offices scattered across the state or country. Nor did he want to rely on advertising as a means of growing his business. West Michigan Hearing Services takes great pride in the fact that over 80% of all of our business comes from existing patients, new patients referred by our happy clientele, and patients referred through the medical community.
At the same time, West Michigan Hearing Services has always strived to be on the cutting edge of hearing evaluation technology and hearing aids. So that's the atmosphere of our office. Long-term relationships. Caring and empathic staff. The skills and attitudes needed to provide top-notch hearing care. A place you will enjoy coming to visit.
