Pam Montgomery-Earl started her professional career as a Registered Nurse and 10 years as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. Hearing loss issues in her family stimulated an interest in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology, she returned to school and completed a Masters in Speech and Hearing Science, and a Clinical Doctorate in Audiology. She is certified as an ASHA Speech Language Pathologist and Audiologist and is a Fellow in the American Academy of Audiology. For the past 21 years she has worked as an Audiologist in the provision of Pediatric and Adult Audiology Services.
Pam believes that untreated hearing loss is a serious national health crisis that severely affects patients, their families, and their ability to communicate in many ways. Her professional goals include educating her community regarding hearing loss and its ramifications, and identification and assessment of her patient’s hearing. There are many amplification options available to patients with hearing loss and Pam feels it can be very confusing for some patients. She works to provide an explanation of the best options available, as well as, provide the products and services which will help patients hear better. Choosing to work with Nilsson Hearing Clinics was an obvious choice because of their commitment to provide patients with the best quality products on the market and their focus on Auditory Counseling services designed to improve patient’s ability to function.
The family business turned out to be even more enjoyable and fun than I had thought and I still look forward to each day on the job. After all, I get to meet people from all walks of life, hear their stories, and help them improve their lives. Family is so important to me (and working in a family business has its advantages there), so when I can help someone reconnect with their own family and experience a happier, fuller life I realized that there really isn't a more rewarding feeling out there.
We have people come in who have been isolated from their friends and family for years. Some have had bad experiences, and others don't even realize how isolated they are until we open the door for them. Restoring and improving hearing can have a total 180-degree effect on their lives. I've had some clients cry tears of joy in the office because they are so happy to once again feel that connection with their world. It's an incredibly fulfilling feeling.
Of course, there are always some challenges along the way. We try so hard here, so on those rare occasions when we're not able to quite reach a patient's hearing goals and give them overall completeness, it can be a hard pill to swallow. There are only so many things we can do to help patients get around the barriers, but we will do whatever we can (and then some) to try and help.
And that inspires us to keep on growing. Our goal is to reach as many people looking for help as possible, and to help them reach the happiness they've been searching for. All of that passion for excellence comes along with the best service possible. Without that, growth wouldn't be worth it.
My entire life I have had a great deal of respect for the generations that came before me. Instilled by my mother and father at a young age, I understand that we all leave an imprint on this world. Hearing stories of previous generations regarding how much things have changed in their lifetime; from my grandfather’s stories of serving our country as a young man to my grandmothers stories of growing up on the old family farm. These stories of serving, growing, learning and making an impact on future generations fascinate me to this day. The knowledge and wisdom that my elders have is something that I continue to appreciate and learn from. As I’ve grown older, I find myself wondering; “Just how much wisdom and knowledge do the cumulative generations have?” Graduating from Dixie State University with a bachelor in Human Communication I believe I am given the chance each and every day to communicate with the people around me on more than a superficial basis. My role as Patient Care Manager at Intermountain Audiology allows me to truly know, love, and communicate with so many great people of previous generations that have that same wisdom and knowledge that continues to intrigue me. As Patient Care Manager I have the responsibility, and the great opportunity, to communicate with each person as an individual human being. Listing to their concerns and questions; as well as crafting and communicating positive change or influence in their life through restored hearing clarity. My role at Intermountain Audiology allows me to be enlightened each day by the great generations of individuals before me, and for me to provide life-enhancement services to keep them actively-engaged and connected to their friends, family, and loved ones for many years to come. Watching the patients’ eyes light up with a glow when they can once again hear the way they use to will forever change my life…and theirs!
As the grandson of an internist, I always wanted to grow up and help people like my grandpa did. He practiced in Provo, Utah for many years and was the original inspiration for my desire to provide quality patient care. After serving an LDS mission, I took a job as a medical assistant in a pediatrics office and loved every minute of it. Seeing how the doctors and physician's assistants interacted with the kids cultivated an even deeper desire... in me to continue pursuing a career in the health field.
As my final year of undergraduate work loomed on the horizon, I took the opportunity to seek the advice of a friend that had become a physician's assistant in the pediatrics clinic where I worked. I wanted to know what I could do to prepare to take the GRE and which schools I should apply to. Before he would answer any of my questions, however, he made me answer a few of his own: why do you want to become a PA? Do you enjoy being able to spend time with your spouse? Are you willing to sacrifice that time with your family in order to further your career? I wanted to become a PA in order to truly help others and improve their quality of life. However, I was hesitant about sacrificing time with my spouse in order to further my career. After answering his questions, he told me that I should consider a different type of health care if I truly wanted to help others without sacrificing time with family. His suggestion was hearing.
After much thought and consideration, I took the plunge and started interning at a hearing clinic in Orem, Utah and it was the best decision I have ever made! Having the opportunity to work one-on-one with patients to improve their hearing is the most rewarding experience imaginable. Nothing makes me feel better than to see someone's face light up when they hear the whisper of their loved one for the first time in 20 years. The icing on the cake is that at the end of the day, I can go home and enjoy time with my beautiful wife, Megan, and our year-old boy, Jackson.
After becoming board-certified and coming to work at Nilsson Hearing Clinics, I can honestly say that there is no better establishment to improve your hearing health. Having worked with a few different practices, with no reservations whatsoever, I can tell you that this group uses the most cutting-edge technology and provides the highest quality of care to their patients, bar none. I am looking forward to many more years of improving the quality of my patients' lives!

“Nilsson Hearing is absolutely the best in taking care of your hearing needs. I recently had my right ear hearing aid wear out after years of hard use. Nilsson Hearing made sure I was able to get an affordable replacement, and then used their amazing technology to pair both my hearing aids so I could maximize my total hearing experience! The moment you walk through the front door you are made to feel taken care of! They know your name and exactly what your hearing needs are. The staff at Nilsson Hearing are trained professionals who always have the goal of restoring your hearing to the best level possible! Thank you Nilsson Hearing !!!!”
“Pam and Staff are sincerely helping me and spending the time to make my hearing as good as possible. Very professional. Thanks.”
“The staff at the Nilsson Hearing Clinic are the cat's "meow". They are the greatest.”
“I was returning back home from Logan Utah to my home in Southern California and stopped in to have my "Hearing Loss" checked, I have been nagged by my family to have my hearing checked. I meet with Kurt at Nilsson and he did a full hearing check on me, was I impressed ! I had no idea what the test consisted of when I got there, talk about attention to detail, It took about 45 minuets and they don't even charge for it. When we were done Kurt explained the test results and let me know I have great hearing, 100% on 2 test and 92% on the other. Kurt did not try to sell me anything, one of the reasons I never really wanted to get it checked, just explained that overtime I might experience some hearing loss and should get tested every other year. I was very delighted about the results and finally confirmed that I do have "SELECTIVE HEARING" thanks family. ”
“Kurt Mooney guided me through my first annual hearing aid follow-up. He was informative as well as helpfully explicit in describing the purpose of each "test" to assess my situation. He encouraged questions, and was supportive and encouraging with recommendations (like: wear your hearing aids regularly!). Thank you, Kurt. ”
