Dr. Diana Kain is co-founder of Heartland Hearing Center. An Iowa native, she grew up in Ames with her older brother who was diagnosed with profound hearing loss at 18 months of age. Her childhood provided first-hand the impact of living with hearing loss and she has since dedicated her life to helping others.
Dr. Kain has been practicing audiology since 2001 primarily within University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics (UIHC). With a strong foundation in diagnosing medically complicated cases Dr. Kain chose private practice to focus on her passion, hearing loss treatment and patient relationships.

Dr. Jennifer Reekers is co-founder of Heartland Hearing Center. Growing up in southern Minnesota she experienced chronic ear infections and hearing loss as a child, requiring surgery to reconstruct her eardrum. Living with her own hearing loss inspired Dr. Reekers to become an audiologist.
Dr. Reekers graduated from the #1 audiology doctoral program in 2009 and has clinical experience from VA healthcare systems and private ENT clinics. She entered into private practice to focus on her passion, empowering each patient with the time and education deserved on their journey to better hearing.
Dr. Reekers specializes in hearing aid technology, counseling and hearing rehabilitation, with emphasis on tinnitus treatment. Given she wears a hearing aid herself, Dr. Reekers offers a unique perspective when counseling realistic expectations and the benefits of amplification.

“I had a very good experience at The Hearing Center. The doctor was very helpful and explained everything, answered all my questions. ”
“These ladies were great! I would recommend them again. ”
“I'm not sure what a 'review' looks like, but I know quality service when I see it. And I see it at Heartland.”
“Very pleased with their after purchase service, helping me to get comfortable with the use of my hearing aids. ”
“We very much appreciated the time and professional advice from Jennifer during two visits. I was able to try out hearing aids, and to discuss with Jennifer what to expect. For now, I decided that I would not benefit as much as I'd hoped, and Jennifer concurred. But we both acknowledged that my situation could change. Our consultation was very professional, yet personal, and very worthwhile.”
