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. Kain is an expert in difficult hearing aid fittings as she specializes in medical audiology, diagnostics and hearing aid technology. Throughout her career, Dr. Kain has spoken extensively on hearing healthcare and also serves as a clinical supervisor for doctoral students.
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 can not find the right words to describe the wonderful service I received from Heartland Hearing starting with the front desk and ending with Diana. Diana was very thorough but also was very patient with me in making sure I understood how to put my hearing aids in as well as how to use the battery charger. I like the fact that I do not have to change batteries as my fingers have a lot of arthritis in them as I am almost 90 years old. I recommend Heartland Hearing to my friends because I feel they will be as happy as I am if they go there.”
“We are so blessed to have been able to experience this miracle of making the decision to purchase this awesome set of hearing aids from Doctors who were able to finally help us. At 97 years old it's a blessing to see our mom interact again, have a conversation, hear wind and most of all she went from a 33 number volume on her tv to a 16. The closed caption button is off now. Tears ran down her face when she said "I don't even have to pretend to hear anymore"! It's truly a miracle and seeing her smile and converse and interact is all due to the awesome technology of these Doctors and their product! She even said she can even hear herself pee! We are so happy and anyone that would like a referral please go here! Such a blessing to finally get rid of the old ones and buy new technology. My name is Sue and I'm her daughter! I give these Doctors 5 miracle stars!”
“Very Friendly and caring people. So helpful for a first time user. I highly recommend them.”
“Who better to advise first time hearing aid customers than someone who has not only received the best training, but who also has first hand personal experience wearing a hearing aid. Jennifer at Heartland Hearing Center answers any and all concerns a first time user of hearing aids could have, with patience and knowledge. I found Heartland's willingness to allow me to test my hearing aids sufficiently before purchasing, allowed me to make an informed decision that met my needs. Customer service is first rate and you always feel valued when dealing with Heartland.”
“I can't say enough about this company and their service! From the moment I walked in the door, I felt right at home and very comfortable. Diana Kain's knowledge and expertise were outstanding as were her customer service skills. She administered a hearing test and fit me with hearing aids that are best suited for me and my type of hearing loss. The technology available for hearing aids now is amazing and Diana took all the time I needed to show me how to access this technology and make it work for me. She even took the time to follow up with me the following day to see how I was getting along. Overall......I couldn't be more pleased!! ”
