Amplify Hearing & Diagnostics is a collaboration of local, independent hearing health care clinicians. We are a locally owned and operated business and are committed to offering you superior hearing care and support. We do not offer our clinicians or staff any incentives or commissions, nor do we set sales targets for our clinicians to meet. Instead we are confident in our wonderful support staff to provide positive outcomes for our clients, and in doing so, have developed a strong word of mouth referral source. With over 50 years of combined industry experience, we have the expertise to independently assess and offer realistic advice for your hearing healthcare. Our team consists of:
