Patient Service Coordinator
I’m very excited to join the Hearing Centers of Southwest Florida. I came from Ohio in 2000. I love the Southwest Florida weather! I was drawn to this position because of my father, who has a perforated eardrum and now wears aides in both ears. I want to help make a difference in other’s lives by being a part of correcting their sense of hearing. “Life is worth hearing”! When away from the office, I enjoy reading and spending time with my husband of 11 years and my 22-year-old son.
This review is as an observer. My mom, Anna Kirk, started seeing Kevin at Audibel several years ago. I have been her "urber" driver for several years, she is 91 years old, and I go to every appointment with her. Kevin has been so patient and caring about her hearing...Pat Williamson, on Google
I had both ears full of wax, couldn't hear out of one of them and only slightly out of the other. Unfortunately the Venice office was full and had no room for appointments. I almost went and bought one of those scary things at Walmart that removes wax, Well then...Nancy Leighton, on Google
I was able to speak to the sales associate and get a clear understanding of what type of aid I may need in a few years. Additionally, I spoke to him about the type of aid my father needs. Wonderful service and kindness all around.Katharine Reigeluth, on Google
Nice and professional staff but I personally think hearing aids are grossly over priced.Richard Abel, on Google
Accompanying my wife to assure her new hearing experience has been great. Surprising how much the new hearing aids shifted her attitude toward what she failed to recognize as a significant problem. I believe she is truly amazed at the new level of her improvement.Bill Barnett, on Google
