Our founder, Jay Norin, was Chairman of the Ethics Committee of the Ohio Hearing Aid Society. He also served as the Treasurer, Vice President, and President. He was appointed by Governor Celeste to serve on the Ohio Hearing Aid Dealers and Fitters Licensing Board and was Chairman of that Board for 7 years.
Jay initiated upgrades of the State License Examination and the National Certification Exam of the International Hearing Society.
Continuing Education is an integral part of our philosophy. We require our staff to keep abreast of state of the art technology, so that we may provide the highest quality service to our patients. We have served as Clinical Trainers and Mentors for Audiology Clinician students from the University of Akron and Kent State University.
Because we know that earmolds have a significant effect on the acoustical responses of hearing aids, all of our audiologists are trained in Earmold Technology.
Mark Norin, M.A., FAAA
A lifelong resident of Akron, Mark has an undergraduate degree from the Ohio University and a Masters of Arts degree in Audiology from the University of Akron.
He is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and serves as audiology advisor of the Ohio Lions Club, district 13-C, for their hearing aid program.
"I grew up in and spent much of my childhood around the office. I was exposed to individuals with hearing loss from a young age, and it seemed natural for me to follow in my parents footsteps and continue our tradition of doing all that we can to improve people's abilities to hear all of the wonders of our world.
My areas of expertise include Computerized, Digital Hearing Aid Technology and Assistive Listening Devices."
