Our small town but busy private-practice dispensing clinic is looking to grow and add a new member to our team! This is not an ENT office or a retail store- we practice a modified medical model where our patients primarily come from medical referrals and are looking for excellent service, a highly professional demeanor and superior skills which result in an unmatched patient experience. You will have the opportunity to practice within the full scope of your training, as a doctor of audiology and primary case manager for the hearing health of your patients. You will have both front and back office support who are extremely competent and make it a pleasure to do your job. If you are looking for a high-energy, caring team and a challenging environment where no day is the same, Integrated Family Hearing is the home for you!
You will be performing audiologic evaluations on all ages, hearing aid consultations, fitting hearing aids and taking care of patients with existing amplification. We work with several manufacturers and help everyone, regardless of where they purchased their hearing aids. We also perform VNG's. You must be independent, confident, friendly and deeply care about the hearing-impaired patient. If a new exciting opportunity where you can shine as an autonomous professional is what you are looking for, contact us today!
