"If today I can help one person hear better, my day was not lived in vain." ~ Lori Hunter-Fields, BS-HIS

My name is Lori and I am originally from Lexington, NC where I was born and raised. I have three grown children named Conlee (my football star), Preston (never met an electronic he couldn't repair), and daughter Savannah (attending Appalachian State University for a degree in medicine). Since our children have grown and gone, we have found a love for travel in our travel trailer. We don't camp, we glamp.

My hopes of being a vessel for folks to have and maintain a quality of life, not just life without quality, was chosen for me by powers greater than myself. There is no career better than using my BS-HIS medical training to bring back the sound of birds chirping in the morning, children laughing or hearing "I love you mom (dad)" with clarity. We only get one little life, nobody gets a re-do, why not enjoy every possible moment with the simplest of joys, hearing.

Many studies show that when a person has a hearing loss their friends and family often avoid conversations of length due to the frustration of repeating themselves multiple times. I know this first hand. I too wear hearing aids. My first day of life quality allowed me to determine a direction of sound. Tears of joy ran down my face as a loud noise occurred and I turned in the direction it came from. I had lost that ability years ago. Something so common and simple to most was a miracle to me. My adult children enjoy visiting more now, especially since they do not have to yell over my loud television. What profession would or could be more awesome than being the person that brings all of that back for others? No, I am not a miracle worker, I am just me utilizing the best hearing devices on the market today in order to help you regain all the magic that only sound can bring. Thank you.

“I was very pleased with the services at the Parklane Hearing with Mrs. Lori B. This is a very professional office from the time you enter from the front desk person, Ms. Crystal to the Specialist. Mrs. Lori was just awesome in her presentation as well as tests performed. She explained everything in its entirety and the cost along with specials that was currently being run to help with costs. Unfortunately, we were not able to financially purchase at this time the Oticon digital hearing aids. due to our current medical and financial obligations, but, appreciated her courteous and professionalism in conducting and describing to me the joy in being able to hear, as well as the dynamics surrounding the loss, and the world of hearing one gains in having a device such as this to aid in restoring what I have missed hearing for over 20 years. I would highly recommend this healthy hearing center as one of your choices of places to consider when shopping for hearing aids. Just wanted to say “Thanks."”

“Who wants to admit their hearing is declining? How many times can you say "Whatcha say?" before people around you realize you have a problem. Alot of questions swirled around my mind the day I came in. Not to mention the slight embarrassment. Then I met Mrs. Barbery, She greeted me with a smile, and immediately made me feel comfortable. She didn't do anything extravagant, She was just personable, and reassuring at a time when I needed it. The product is amazing, but the staff is what will keep me coming back to this location. Thank you guys!!”
