“Choosing a hearing professional is one of the most important decisions someone with a hearing problem can make. Since a hearing aid cannot be prescribed like eyeglasses, proper hearing aid recommendation and fitting highly depends on the judgment and skill of the professional selecting the instrument. We test your hearing; select and dispense the hearing instrument best to meet your needs; and provide support, counseling, and service to insure you are a successful hearing aid user. We are concerned about you and make hearing solution recommendations to fit your lifestyle and personal needs.”

-Diane Blaising

Dr. Blaising and her husband (both fifth-generation Texans) are active members of First Baptist Church in Dallas, TX. Her husband serves at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. They have two children.
