Pete’s father was later diagnosed with hearing loss, and this was the motivator & passion for Pete dedicate his career to Help the hearing impaired. Since starting his career after graduation in 1995, Pete has wanted to be the very BEST in his field in helping people who suffer from hearing loss.

“Friendly courteous staff who scheduled me the day i called as friend had a very positive experience. Peter tested my hearing again(i had been to this practice before some time ago) explained results well . He set up plan to let me accommodate to new aides gradually as there was quite a difference. I enjoy hiking here in WNC and now realize i was missing the sounds of trickling creeks an the sound of song birds. These aides have also greatly improved my hearing of individuals in group situations, my guitar, and notably my own voice sounds like me again. I would recommend calling Sherry for at least an evaluation definitely couldnt hurt, most likely you’ll be pleased also.”
