Celebrating over 60 years! Our journey began with Gottlieb Bieri and his wife, Marie Bieri who decided they wanted to help others like his parents, Helen & Gottlieb Sr. Bieri who had met at the Flint School for the Deaf in the early 1900's. Gottlieb was inspired to seek out technology that would help not only his parents, but others to enjoy life to its fullest and to interact easier with family, social situations and work. Gottlieb and Marie Bieri's daughter, Cathy Bieri Ryan, Au.D./Doctor of Audiology continues the legacy as President of Bieri Hearing Specialists. It is her goal that everyone with a hearing impairment receives care from a knowledgeable and caring staff so that they may live a better life.
