“Seven years ago, while my daughter was staying with me, she suggested that I should get my hearing checked. I had seen the Sound Relief Hearing Center ads on TV, and suspecting that ringing in my ears might be part of my problem, I made an appointment with Dr. Leah for testing. She did a great job interpreting my results, and fitting me with the perfect Oticon Hearing Aides, adjusted just right for my hearing loss and mild tinnitus. With these hearing aids I don’t seem to struggle as much with background noise in crowed places as some of my friends do, and my tinnitus is barely noticeable to me when I wear them. All these years later, I love going for follow up appointments to the Westminster office for cleaning or periodic adjustments to my devices. Dr. Leah is professional and personable, and the staff there are very helpful keeping me stocked with any supplies I need, or answering any question I might have. Best customer service around! I highly recommend them! ”

“Agnes, thank you for sharing your positive experience with Sound Relief Hearing Center and Dr. Mitchell. It's wonderful to hear that your daughter's suggestion led you to seek help for your hearing and that Dr. Mitchell did an excellent job interpreting your test results and fitting you with the perfect Oticon Hearing Aids.”

“I realized I was having trouble hearing the audio from the TV and portions of conversations with family members. I visited another provider and left feeling like it was a one size fits all and would not address my problem. Then I went to sound relief and Dr. Leah did a very comprehensive exam and listened to my concerns. She fitted me with the latest devices from Oticon and worked with me to adjust them for my individual demands for clarity and effectiveness. I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend Sound Relief and Dr. Leah for the answer to your hearing difficulties. ”

“Ken, we're thrilled that you are highly satisfied with the results and that Sound Relief, along with Dr. Mitchell, was able to address your hearing difficulties. Personalized care and attention can make a significant difference in the overall experience and outcomes for individuals with hearing loss. Thank you for the review and the recommendation.”

“I developed mild hearing loss but had tinnitus that was very disruptive to my daily functioning. I went to an audiologist who was able to help with the hearing loss but not the ringing in my ears. As an MD, my ability to hear patients well is crucial. I went to Dr Mitchell who did the evaluation, explained the approach to treating the tinnitus and since using the hearing aids programmed by her, my tinnitus is not disruptive at all and at times I forget I even have it. I would highly recommend her as she knows her stuff, explains things well and is very personable and professional at the same time.”

The help you need and the relief you deserve

Here at Sound Relief, everything we do starts with our patients. We’re not owned by a manufacturer or forced to sell a certain product or procedure. Instead, we give our patients the time they deserve and need. Backed by the best technology, we share a passion for helping anyone suffering from tinnitus or other hearing health issues.

What makes us different is that we specialize in tinnitus. As Colorado’s leading experts, no tinnitus treatment team is ranked higher or referred with more confidence. With the most comprehensive FDA-approved tinnitus treatments anywhere, we’ve helped thousands of sufferers experience life-changing results. Hearing health care isn’t just what we do, it’s who we are.

Our Core Values

To understand our practice, it is important to understand the principles we strive to emulate.

1. Be People-Centered

Our focus on the patient is a top priority, but this extends to our team here at Sound Relief as well. We are a family-owned and operated company, and we want everyone (patients and employees) that walks through our doors to feel that sense of compassion and family. We also encourage our people to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

One of the big advantages of Sound Relief is our ability to collaborate with the top minds in the field of audiology. Our audiologists regularly work together to help find the best outcome for each patient.

2. Be Integrity Driven

The Prutsmans are the owners and founders of Sound Relief, and they believe everything about the practice reflects on them and their family legacy. Based on that, they do everything in their power to ensure that the practice operates at the highest moral and ethical standards. From the interactions and relationships with patients, employees, vendors, and insurance companies, dedication to this core value is clearly a guiding principle every day.

Dr. Julie also serves on the board of the American Tinnitus Association. She believes her involvement will help further their mission and improve the lives of people suffering from tinnitus.

3. Be Innovative

The field of audiology is always evolving. In order to stay ahead of the curve, Sound Relief dedicates tremendous resources to evaluating new technology and treatment techniques, improving existing systems and processes internally, and creating new tools to improve the overall patient experience.

Hearing care services

Sound Relief Tinnitus & Hearing Center is your locally-owned and trust resources for hearing help. We offer specialized audiology services, including tinnitus treatment, extensive diagnostic hearing testing, and solutions for decreased sound tolerance.

  • Hearing & speech comprehensive testing/evaluation - a series of tests and inspections to assess the overall hearing health of a patient. If you want the best hearing test, you've come to the right place.
  • Tinnitus assessment - tinnitus is common and often described as a "ringing, rushing or buzzing sound in the ears". The tinnitus assessment at Sound Relief combines tinnitus-specific tests, a comprehensive audiological evaluation, and tympanometry.
  • Hyperacusis assessment - a hearing disorder for patients with a decreased tolerance for everyday noise/sounds at such high levels that it causes irritation, anxiety, or even physical pain.
  • Hearing aid evaluation - based on your test results, needs, lifestyle and budget together we will determine which hearing device will best suite you.
  • Hearing aid sales - rechargeable, background noise cancellation and Bluetooth streaming capability
  • Custom made and fitted hearing aids - using an earmold impression of the patient's ear.
  • Programming of hearing aids with your full prescription
  • ​​​​​​Real Ear Measurements (REM) - REMs are the gold standard in audiology for verification that the hearing aids are working as they should and providing the intended benefits inside the patient’s ear canal at the eardrum.
  • Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions - This test measure frequencies in each ear and the audiologist interprets the results found.
  • Removal and management of non-Impacted and impacted Cerumen (earwax).
