On behalf of the Hearing Center of Sierra Vista, we would like to thank you for your past support of our hearing care services. As the premier hearing care providers in this community for over 15 years, the goal of our practice has always been to provide unsurpassed care that improves the lives of our cherished patients. This is a shared goal across our team.
We are writing to inform you that Benjamin Smith, AuD, is no longer with our practice as he is moving outside of the market allowing him and his family to achieve their personal goals. We wish him well in his endeavors and thank him for his time with the practice.
As our patient, you need not worry about your care. We have hired a new audiologist, Dr. Lauren Fedt. Dr. Fedt received her clinical Doctorate in Audiology from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona with a minor in Public Health and a graduate certificate in Bilingual Audiology. She completed her undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. Dr. Fedt has experience in a variety of clinical environments including the VA, the Arizona State School for the Deaf and Blind, private practice, and with an otolaryngologist practice. Dr. Fedt’s clinical interests primarily lie in the areas of adult diagnostics, amplification, tinnitus management, and aural rehabilitation. Dr. Fedt is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and became Board Certified in Audiology by the American Board of Audiology in 2017.
Dr. Fedt initially became aware of the field of Audiology by witnessing poor treatment of those with hearing loss over the telephone. She wants to improve the lives of those with hearing difficulties and educate the public on how to better communicate and interact with this population. Dr. Fedt enjoys working with patients of all ages to improve their quality of life by providing solutions to those who need hearing protection devices, need relief from their tinnitus, need “some extra help” in hearing their loved ones or coworkers, or need appropriately fit hearing aids in their day-to-day lives.
We encourage you to stop into office to meet Dr. Fedt as she brings a great deal of expertise to our practice. During this time, we will also offer you a complimentary clean & check of your hearing devices to make sure everything is in proper working order, regardless of when they were purchased. Lastly, should you need to upgrade your hearing technology, as we know that transition can sometimes be difficult, we are extending a 10% off loyalty discount on an AGX hearing system thru the end of November.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office. We are 100% committed to your hearing healthcare and want you to be rest assured that your level of care is not only met, but exceeded going forward.
With warmest regards,
The Hearing Center of Sierra Vista Team
