Doctor of Audiology, Owner
Dr. Shannon L. Austin is passionate about professional, individualized hearing care and cherishes the special bonds that are created with patients and their families. She believes each patient deserves a unique and welcoming experience each time they visit. Her desire is to be a trusted hearing health advisor to her patients and the community because she understands the frustration and isolation that hearing loss can cause.

She previously spent fifteen years in clinical audiology on Indianapolis’ west side as well as six years teaching undergraduate Audiology courses at Butler University. She also has three years of industry experience as an Account Executive for a major hearing aid manufacturer. She loves to teach and mentor audiology students, and has been a clinical supervisor for students from Ball State, Purdue, and Indiana University. SLA Audiology fulfills a dream of private practice ownership and brings her back to her genuine joy of patient care.

“After numerous suggestions from my wife, I gave in and went to see Shannon. Dr. Austin. My wife has been going to her for about six years. Shannon is extremely knowledgeable and she does her job very well. Haven’t decided which is best, her professional work or her personality. Both are at least 10 plus. Sharon and I both can honestly recommend her to you. Thank you.”
