Hearing Better Improves Your Life
The hearing loss that you may be experiencing isn’t just personally disappointing – it can actually be damaging to your quality of life.
There is a large number of ways that hearing loss can begin to negatively affect your life. In the beginning, you may just ask your family and friends to repeat themselves or even have difficulties watching television in a group because everyone can hear the audio but you. You might get embarrassed when work becomes more difficult with little mistakes. You might find it difficult to enjoy listening to your favorite songs or watching your favorite movies like you used to.
It is important to know that hearing loss is nothing to be ashamed of. Instead of feeling down or hoping that the problem will go away, contact the Parker Hearing Institute today. Our trained and passionate professionals will offer you hope and help with your hearing issues.

Meet the Parkers
Pictured to the left are Lee, Josh and Andrea Parker.
Lee Parker founded Parker Hearing Institute in 1975. As a hearing child raised in a deaf house, Lee deeply understands the difficulties of hearing loss and sympathises with those who struggle. He is a pioneer in the field of audiology, an expert and a consultant to Hollywood regarding the hearing impaired. His care and strong values built Parker Hearing to what it is today. Part of what makes Parker Hearing Institute so unique is its family values. Lee and his wife Christine have four children and ten marvelous grandchildren in total. They spend their free time RVing, camping, fishing, and loving their family. Lee himself is outgoing and absolutely not afraid to express an opinion when it is warranted. Now retired, he still comes in and assists his family when needed.
Josh Parker, the third of Lee’s and Christine’s children, now runs and operates Parker Hearing Institute. He is the father of two children and enjoys camping, fishing, swimming, surfing, and hiking. Most importantly, however, he enjoys watching his children grow and mature. Josh is a kind, funny individual and also a professional. He is outgoing, irreverent, and personable – all of which are qualities that make him absolutely perfect for taking over the practice. Josh is a family man first and foremost, and considers his patients to be some of the most important family members of all.
Andrea Huttinger, the first of Lee’s and Christine’s children, is the primary pediatric specialist at Parker Hearing Institute. A wife and mother of her own now-grown energetic brood, Andrea tests the little ones for hearing problems. Caring and enthusiastic, she loves children with all her heart and treats them with the broadest of smiles.
In addition to begin the local audiologists, Lee and Josh regularly write a column in the Daily Breeze called “Ask the Parkers”. If you receive the newspaper, you might have run across the column throughout the print.
You shouldn’t waste another moment feeling depressed or embarrassed about hearing loss, which is an issue that millions of Americans face on a daily basis. Instead, take steps to do something about it by contacting Parker Hearing Institute today.
