Each of the clinics in the Estes Audiology family is focused on comprehensive and individual patient care, whether a hearing aid is the most appropriate solution or a different recommendation is the better option. Our goal is to serve the needs of our patients to their satisfaction and always respect the decisions that each person makes in regard to their hearing care. This vision was established early on by our founders, Soriya Estes and Kelli House.
