Rural Audiology Services
Rural Audiology Services was started in 1985 by Dr. Gary Glascoe and his wife, Christine. They owned and grew the business for 16 years before they sold it to Becky and Andy in 2001. Gary was diagnosed with cancer and died shortly after his decision to sell his practice. The care and compassion that Gary showed his patients was exemplary. His Christian heart was evident in everything he did. Chris worked with Becky for six years following the sale of the practice to make the transition smooth. It was obvious Gary wasn't the only reason for the success of the business. Chris did all the "behind the scenes" work that kept the business working and was a blessing to a new business owner. She retired in 2007.
What is an Audiologist?
An audiologist specializes in evaluating and treating people with hearing loss. Audiologists hold masters or doctoral degrees from accredited universities with special training in the prevention, identification, assessment and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders. Audiologists are required to complete a full-time internship and pass a demanding national competency examination. By virtue of their graduate education, professional certification and licensure, audiologists are the most qualified professionals to perform hearing tests, refer patients for medical treatment and provide hearing rehabilitation services.
