Richard Moore was born on August 24th, 1951. He graduated from East Rutherford High School carrying onto further his education at the Isothermal Community College in Spindale, NC. After graduating with an Associates of Arts Degree he went onto seeking his Bachelor of Arts Degree at the Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. Upon completion of his Bachelor's Degree, he went onto complete his Masters of Fine Arts Communication at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, NC. He is a past President of the Marion Rotary Club and Rotarian Emeritus.

A North Carolina Native Richard has been a hearing instrument specialist for seventeen years. He enjoys his career because he can see the difference that better hearing has on the lives of his patients. He became interested in audiology back in the late 1990's when he saw his mother struggle with hearing loss. His mother wore old analog hearing aids. Every time he would hug her, her aid would start feeding back and screaming. Thank goodness the aids we use do not do that anymore. His mother is now gone, but he tells his patients that he would love to hear that feedback squeal just one more time.

Richard is a father of two children. Son, Christopher who is 27, lives in New York City pursuing a career in computer code writing. His daughter Charlotte who is sixteen attends early college. She is deciding between a career as a lawyer or a veterinarian.

“My mom's hearing aide which was purchased from another provider failed and Rick was able to quickly and accurately diagnosis the problem! Rick was great with my elderly parent and stepped thru the process of replacing the filter. Mountain Ear was able to work us in with a same day appointment. This was important since my mom volunteers 5 days a week at a pre-school and hates to miss a day with the little ones. Thanks Rick!!!”

“I had previously tried hearing aids and was so dissatisfied with them that I gave them up. After several more years, I decided to try again and went to Mountain Ear. I have had a pair of hearing aids for a month now and am most pleased with their performance. Rick performed a thorough hearing exam and fitted me with the aids I need. He is a true professional in his profession and I recommend him highly.”

“I was so pleased with the wonderful service I received, Rick sent my hearing aids in for repair, and made sure the sound was great and when I asked for the bill, there was none!! My contract from Florida was still in effect, I feel bad that he did such a great job taking care of me and received no $$. I recommend him to all.”
