Kristin Hinderliter, Au.D. FAAA
Doctor of Audiology / Owner
Hello. My name is Dr. Kristin Hinderliter, owner and audiologist. I was born with hearing loss and am passionate about providing individual solutions to my patients. Driven by the philosophy that communication is fundamental to living a fulfilled life, I am deeply committed to eliminating communication barriers for patients of all ages.
I have been providing the highest level of hearing health care in the area for over 18 years and I strive every day to change the way hearing services are delivered. By using state of the art technologies and equipment, utilizing the most sophisticated hearing devices available, and providing an unhurried and comprehensive approach to diagnosing and managing hearing disorders, I have tried to raise the bar for a quality experience.
I was born and raised in Birmingham, MI. I attended Seaholm high school before going on to Michigan State University for my Bachelors of Arts in Audiology & Speech Sciences and my Master's of Arts in Audiology. I then received my Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) in 2005 from Pennsylvania College of Optometry, since renamed Salus University.
My career began working in a non-profit organization in Detroit with Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals. Following that experience, in 2003 I co-owned a private audiology practice until deciding to pursue a new venture with Hinderliter Hearing Services.
