Our Audiologist and Hearing Professionals
Rhea G Gage, Au.D
You can see from my resume below that my commitment to continuing education and my ever expanding skills allows me to give to you the EXPERT ADVICE, PERSONALIZED CARE, EXCEPTIONAL VALUE you deserve.
I was inspired to work with hearing loss from third grade when my beloved pet dog was hit by a car. A skull fracture caused permanent hearing loss. Someone said, “You should put him to sleep. A dog needs to hear.” and my 10 year old thinking rallied “You wouldn’t put a person to sleep because they can’t hear”. My passion for finding solutions to work with the hearing impaired was started.
In high school I volunteered at our local school for the deaf. I entered college knowing I wanted to be an Audiologist!
From my undergraduate training to my master’s degree I worked my way up from an Audiology Trainee to the lead Audiologist in a busy physician’s office. I started a private practice in 1995 and with two busy thriving offices completed my Doctorate degree in my ‘spare time’. From 2004 to 2009 I worked as a contract audiologist while my children finished high school. And now I have reopened Hearing & Audiology Services to bring my skills and passion back to YOU. I love what I do and will give you the time and dedicated efforts to answer your questions and find solutions to help you hear well again!
