The field of audiology initially captured Dr. Kern’s attention as a patient when he received his first hearing aid. It was then that he realized how much sound he was missing from his life, and how better hearing could improve his life.
As an audiologist, Dr. Kern’s goal is to improve the lives of his patients with better hearing through a customized approach. By understanding their unique listening needs, and using evidence-based practices, he is able to ensure the best possible fit of their hearing technology.
