A Tradition of Helping People Hear Clearly

“Hearing Care is advancing faster than the speed of sound. Breakthroughs like digital and wireless technology are assuring people a richer, more pure sound quality than ever before. That’s why I never stop training. I know how much depends on your hearing. I want you to know your hearing can depend on me.”

Education: Graduate degree from University of Colorado; Undergraduate from Concordia College; Board Certified - Hearing Instrument Sciences; Audioprosthologist

A family tradition of hearing care: Second Generation Hearing Care Practice since 1968

Extensive postgraduate education: Annual continuing education and training in hearing care practices and revolutionary digital and wireless hearing instrument technology

A Heart You Can Trust

“People with hearing difficulties retreat into isolation, enduring sounds of silence instead of enjoying their grandchildren’s giggles. That’s why I regularly speak at seminars and senior communities. Some patients won’t reach out for the help they need. I make sure it reaches out to them.”

Lecturer: Seminars and area senior communities

Author: Consumer education series, The Arizona Republic; Patient blog, 

Member: International Hearing Society, Arizona Hearing Health Care Providers

“I’ll never cut you off in the middle of a sentence, talk to your spouse instead of you, or make an adjustment in the programming of your instrument without explaining it to you first.

What I will do is listen to you, learn from you, and involve you in the process. It’s the only way to know which technology is really right for you.

I’m proud of the credentials on this page. They reflect my commitment to keeping abreast of the latest breakthroughs in hearing care. I never forget that a professional’s personal qualifications; thoughtfulness, compassion, and dedication make the biggest difference in your world full of sound.”

“I found Desert Hearing Care on a Google search looking for a place that repairs hearing aids. Since the Sun Lakes location was only 15 mins. from my house, I didn't bother calling, I just drove there. There was a sign on the door saying by appointment only, but I just walked in. I was greeted by Lilly. I told her I didn't have an appointment, but I wanted to know how I get my hearing aids fixed. She told me that they check the hearing aids free of charge. They do an extensive cleaning, check for wax build up and other usual causes for failed hearing aids, and if that doesn't fix the problem, they then have the audiologist trouble shoot the hearing aids more extensively and give an estimate to have them fixed. She had me fill out an appointment form and when I told her I had the non operational hearing aid with me , she asked me to fill in the area describing what was wrong with it and had me drop it in a basket she was holding. She took it in the back room, while I took a seat, and about 15 mins later returned with the hearing aid. She said it was clogged with wax, so they gave it a deep cleaning, replaced the wax guard, put on a new ear dome, put in a new battery and it is now working. I put it in my ear and it worked perfectly. I thanked her and left. I never expected to walk into a place I had never been to, without an appointment, and walk out 20 mins later with a good as new heaing aid for $0. They are amazing. Thanks again Lilly.”
