Audiology With A Heart: A Non-Profit Hearing Practice
We love what we do. We love that each and every day, we have the opportunity to improve lives. We understand that when one hears better, life gets better. We do what we do to help you better communicate with those you love, more actively participate in the workplace, improve your social life and strengthen your cognitive health. We know that treating your hearing expands much further than your ears. It can improve all areas of your life.
If you think you may be experiencing some of the early signs of hearing loss, reach out to our friendly team today. We are passionate about helping our patients find solutions that work for them. We take the time to listen to you, walk you through all your options, and help you make an informed choice about your hearing health care. We understand that hearing loss can be a rocky and sometimes emotional journey, and we are happy to walk you through it. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Audiology With A Heart was founded by Dr. Debra Shadoff. She entered the field of audiology because she wanted to help people and has had a lifelong interest in supporting the Deaf and hard-of-hearing communities. After she graduated, she started working in a sales-driven environment that left her feeling unsatisfied. She hated being expected to pressure patients into buying expensive hearing aids.
After a few years, she moved into a nonprofit environment and found what she had been missing. She loved the nonprofit approach so much that she decided to create her own nonprofit practice. That became Audiology With A Heart, which builds on Debra's experience at other nonprofit organizations. Here, we prioritize you, not the bottom line.
Our favorite part of working in audiology is knowing the difference we can make. When patients tell us their lives are better because of what we do for them, it reminds us that we're in the right field doing the right thing.
Debra has practiced audiology for more than 29 years; 23 of those years in South Florida. She received her Bachelor of Science from the University of New Hampshire, her Master of Science from Gallaudet University, and her Doctor of Audiology from A.T. Still University in Arizona.
She is a member of the American Academy of Audiology and regularly attends seminars and training courses to stay up-to-date on the latest hearing technology.
