Grant has been serving the hearing impaired in the Sarasota, Port Charlotte, and Punta Gorda areas for nearly 15 years. Previously, he served four years in the U.S. Marines. Grant’s wife, who is also a Hearing Aid Specialist, introduced him to the hearing healthcare field. Grant is committed to improving his patient’s quality of life by fitting them with hearing aids that best suit their individual needs and creating a follow-up plan, which is critical to the success of hearing devices. “Hearing loss for most is such a gradual process that they often times don't realize the impact it can have on their lives. Most of the time it takes our family and friends to notice these problems first.”
