Sarah Curtis, Au.D. is a Doctor of Audiology and Owner of Sounds of Life Hearing Center in Concord Township, Ohio. Dr. Curtis opened her practice in 2018, 8 years after obtaining her degree and practicing, with the mission to provide exemplary, best-practice, patient-centered hearing healthcare to her community.
Studies estimate about 70% of people with hearing loss are not obtaining treatment. They are struggling but could be living much better lives if they received the right kind of hearing care. Many people struggle with hearing loss not because they have not tried to treat it, but because their investments were not met with acceptable outcomes. It is not uncommon to hear: “My friend spent $8,000 on hearing aids and they didn’t help him at all” or “I tried 3 different pairs and I still couldn’t understand what anyone said if it was noisy – they just kept telling me if I bought the best technology, I’d do better.”
No one should ever be sold hearing aids. They should invest in the rehabilitation of their hearing and overall healthcare. At Sounds of Life Hearing Center, Dr. Curtis ensures that the latter is always true. By using electroacoustic analyses to ensure that devices are functioning correctly; verification of output via Real-Ear Measures to assist programming and adequately amplify such that conversational speech is audible; and counseling throughout the diagnostic and rehabilitative process, Dr. Curtis’s patients consistently exceed their own expectations and are living better lives. It takes only a brief look at reviews of her practice to confirm that the level of service delivery and dedication to patient outcomes is unmet in her community.
Dr. Curtis graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2010 with her Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) and a concentration in aural rehabilitation. She obtained internship opportunities in the Knox County Public Schools, Tennessee School for the Deaf, Perkins School for the Blind, and the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Following graduation worked for Central Florida Speech and Hearing Center (Lakeland, FL), University Hospitals (Cleveland, OH) and CVS.
Dr. Curtis is a native of Painesville and Mentor, Ohio. She is a Mentor High graduate and obtained her B.A. in Psychology from Youngstown State University (Go Penguins!). Her wonderful husband is Daniel (who built this awesome website) and they chase their kids (Zach and Ellie), two dogs, and two cats around for fun. She is a lover of music, yummy food, Disney (and Disney World), docuseries based on veterinarian clinics and zoos, and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Cara Donovan, Au.D. graduated from the University of Akron as part of the Northeast Ohio Audiology Consortium (NOAC) with her Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) in May 2020 after completing a very challenging externship with the Cleveland Clinic. Additionally, she obtained internship opportunities at Akron Children’s Hospital and the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. She came to Sounds of Life Hearing Center on very high recommendation and has proven to be a wonderful fit for our patients both with her talents and her spirit.
Dr. Donovan is a native of Indianapolis, Indiana. She graduated from North Central High School and continued her undergraduate education at Butler University (GO DAWGS!) where she majored in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a concentration in mild intervention for those with special needs. Dr. Donovan has a strong passion to serve and support others! In high school she organized a Prom Closet for those who could not afford to buy new dress. She loves basketball and baseball (Go Tribe!) and cannot go a day without coffee. She will eat anything sweet but doesn’t like ice cream (Dr. Curtis didn’t hold that against her)! She is also a cat mother to her cute and loving kitty, Walter. In addition, Dr. Donovan has a loving family and is able to see them often! She is very excited to continue showing them all the wonderful parts of Northeast Ohio!

“Dr. Curtis and her staff are true professionals. I was slowly losing my hearing in my left ear and recently developed a drumming noise in that same ear. It turned out to be an acute case of ear-wax buildup. Dr. Curtis took care of my problem in one visit. I can hear great again ! Thanks Doc.”
“I am enjoying a much better quality of life thanks to Dr. Curtis. She is friendly, knowledgeable and has been very attentive to my hearing needs. I have been able to live life again without the frustration of always being on alert to try to hear and listen. Dr. Curtis is a true professional and I highly recommend Sounds Of Life.”
