Dr. Burkle studied Music Engineering and Physics at Ball State University. He started his post college career within the music industry by providing consultation in recording studios in design and acoustics. After discovering Audiology, and his passion for hearing instrument technology, he attended graduate school at Indiana University. After completing his studies, he spent five years providing diagnostic Audiology, and hearing instrument services, within an ear, nose, and throat medical practice in Somerset, Kentucky before becoming a regional training Audiologist for Siemens Hearing Instruments. While at Siemens, Dr. Burkle was recognized in the Siemens ‘Circle of Excellence’ three years in a row. Although he enjoyed becoming an expert in hearing instrument technology on the device side of the industry, he was eager to return to patient care. He is committed to helping the hearing impaired improve their communication ability, as well as their quality of life.
Thomas Z. Burkle holds a Doctorate in Audiology from Indiana University, as well as a Bachelor of Music from Ball State University.
