Dr. Susan Swain, Au.D., M.Aud., B.A.


“When I help someone hear better for the first time, it’s a great feeling. Especially when I see folks who have had bad experiences with hearing aids. Many people don’t realize the difference the right hearing aid and a perfect fit can make. Life is full of wonderful sounds; everyone should be able to enjoy hearing them clearly!”


An education reflecting excellence

“My own middle-ear problems and surgeries opened my eyes to the possibility of a career in audiology. With a great mentor and a drive to help people, I excelled in school and developed a real passion for my career. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
