We’ve been helping ears for 20 years!
Audiologist Sheri Macgregor opened the doors of Highland Hearing Clinic 20 years ago this month. Her first office was located in Antigonish where she started out with a part-time receptionist. Today, the team at Highland Hearing has grown to three full time audiologists, one part time audiologist, and three support staff. They now have a location in Port Hawkesbury open four days per week and a satellite clinic in Inverness open twice per month.
“The best part of being an audiologist is when people tell me the difference we have made in their lives. My goal is to lesson the impact a hearing loss has on someone’s life – I want to make sure it doesn’t slow them down or keep them from participating,” says Macgregor. “The best compliment I ever received was ‘Thanks for giving me my mother back.’” Macgregor recalls many changes in technology over her twenty years dispensing hearing aids. “I remember when we had to use a screwdriver to adjust a few parameters on hearing aids. Now we have computer screens full of features we can adjust to make hearing aids suit each person’s unique lifestyle and preferences. I’ve seen the progression from analog to digital to Bluetooth, wireless technology and hearing aid apps. I enjoy the challenge of keeping up with the technology advancements and have definitely seen patient satisfaction increase over the years.”
