“I saw the Sound Relief ads on TV for years and didn’t know what to think, but hoped there was actually help for tinnitus. Finally, when an office opened in Peoria, I made an appointment and was assessed by Dr Bomina. She answered all my questions and welcomed my husband into the process. I am doing sound therapy and am hopeful that my tinnitus will be an afterthought, not a forethought. I enjoy meeting with Dr Bomina and value her knowledge and experience.”

“I first learned about Sound Relief centers from Dr Julie in Colorado, visiting the in-laws. Had hoped they would move an office to Arizona and poof, they did. I joined them with Dr Bomina Kang and really what a relief. I was skeptical, but after the meet with Dr Kang, I became a believer, in just a few shorts month, Tinnitus is much better, not gone, but better since my start. Dr Kang is great, she is very knowledgeable, quite funny and a joy to learn from. Thank You Dr Julie for bringing this service to Arizona.”

Our Core Values
To understand our practice, it is important to understand the principles we strive to emulate.
1. Be People-Centered
Our focus on the patient is a top priority, but this extends to our team here at Sound Relief as well. We are a family-owned and operated company, and we want everyone (patients and employees) that walks through our doors to feel that sense of compassion and family. We also encourage our people to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
One of the big advantages of Sound Relief is our ability to collaborate with the top minds in the field of audiology. Our audiologists regularly work together to help find the best outcome for each patient.
2. Be Integrity Driven
The Prutsmans are the owners and founders of Sound Relief, and they believe everything about the practice reflects on them and their family legacy. Based on that, they do everything in their power to ensure that the practice operates at the highest moral and ethical standards. From the interactions and relationships with patients, employees, vendors, and insurance companies, dedication to this core value is clearly a guiding principle every day.
Dr. Julie also serves on the board of the American Tinnitus Association. She believes her involvement will help further their mission and improve the lives of people suffering from tinnitus.
3. Be Innovative
The field of audiology is always evolving. In order to stay ahead of the curve, Sound Relief dedicates tremendous resources to evaluating new technology and treatment techniques, improving existing systems and processes internally, and creating new tools to improve the overall patient experience.
