Our Audiologists

The Center was established in 1923, as the League for the Hard of Hearing and our services addressed the communication needs of individuals in the Columbus community who were hard-of-hearing. Today, our team of doctoral level, licensed audiologists treats hearing loss in people of all ages. Our focus on education empowers patients and their families to make informed decisions about hearing loss and amplification options.

We provide comprehensive hearing evaluations and rehabilitative audiologic services, including tinnitus management and cochlear implant services. Our audiologists recommend and dispense a complete range of hearing aids to meet each patient’s unique listening needs based upon the nature and degree of their hearing loss. Our Audiology & Hearing Aid Services practice provides services to nearly 4,000 children and adults in Central Ohio each year. We believe communication connects people to each other and to the world around them.

Many things have changed over the years, but one thing has remained constant our dedication to providing the highest quality care possible to our friends and neighbors in central Ohio.
