Meet a Provider: Dennis

When Dennis holds a hearing aid in his hand, he doesn’t just see a medical device; he sees a powerful solution to his patients’ needs. “It’s really not the device itself—it’s what it offers them,” he says. “It’s the solution to their problems, to their needs that they’re missing in their life.” In order to provide the best care for each person that walks through the door, Dennis truly enjoys sitting down with each customer and getting to know their lifestyle and needs.
