“Why Did I Become An Audiologist?”
I’ve been asked that several times through the years. To be honest, I love the technology. I started off majoring in speech language pathology but found that I loved my hearing science and audiology courses way more than SLP classes.
I loved all the testing equipment, the hearing aids and yes, the gadgets that audiologists used to help improve the lives of the hearing impaired. And how the technology has changed over the years! With every launch, hearing devices keep getting better.
I love learning about all the improvements the different manufacturers keep making over previous models. I picked an industry that continues to evolve and deliver the sounds of life to our customers.
My journey as an audiologist started out in the medical setting of an Ear, Nose and Throat physician’s office. I stayed there for 5 years before heading out to work for Phonak Hearing Systems which is a leading manufacturer of hearing devices. While there, I traveled all over the southeast teaching people about our products and how to use them better.
I always wanted to fit the best products on everyone but unfortunately wasn’t always able to due to finances. After 9 years with Phonak, I started my own clinic where I was finally able to put great devices on any patient that came through our doors. We tried our best to get people help no matter their financial situation.
We even financed in-house if the person couldn’t get approved through a more traditional means. That made me very nervous at first because we still had to pay our invoices even if the aids weren’t going to be paid for a long time. But it worked and we were able to help people that had been told no at other hearing centers.
That set us apart. But good things come to an end – we sold our business to a larger entity due to rising insurance costs, reimbursement, etc. All things that a bigger entity is better equipped to handle.
I was working for the corporation that bought us when the pandemic hit and everything halted. To be safe, our patients were not coming in and I was furloughed and eventually left employment with that company.
While on furlough, several of my previous patients would call me for assistance and I would go to their home to see them. I would clean ears, clean hearing aids and program the devices as necessary. I didn’t charge any of these initial patients but I did take their advice to start a service and that’s when the idea of Audiology On Call was born.
Together, with Jenna and Kelli, we developed this business of home hearing care to help fill the needs of our patients and future patients during this troubling time of staying at home. For some people, it has been wonderfully helpful.
For instance, I saw a patient with advanced ALS who has to have an ambulance take him to any doctor’s appointments. Now, I go to him. Also, people who need help getting to their audiologist appointments don’t have to rely on a ride.
I see them in their home at their convenience. I feel that we’re filling a gap in our industry and helping people with their hearing health in a new, more convenient way.
Why People Choose Dr. Stephany Sun
‘Don’t wait too long. Call Stephany and let her help.’ – Teresa’s Story.
Teresa’s unfortunate timeline of hearing loss concerns began in 1980, when she was first diagnosed with tinnitus.
While she did make a great first step in approaching several ENT practices, it wasn’t enough to get to the direct root of the problem.
Looking back on her hearing aid mishaps, she recalls the moment she received her first set of hearing aids which, Teresa jokes, “sounded like I was talking through a Mr. Microphone toy.”
She explains, “We talked and talked and talked. Then, she started the testing. And I went through a series of different tests, people speaking words, noise in the background, you name it. And then she tested me with some hearing aids in my ear.
“And it was like, wow, I can’t even tell you how long I was there.
“But she knew exactly what I needed and what was going to help keep me … so I could get used to my voice with these hearing aids.”
It’s true that Teresa has received a lifetime of unfortunate hearing loss mishaps, but her treatment at Audiology on Call highlighted just how important it is to see a licensed specialist who truly cares.
Stephany worked through a combination of methods to outline the degree of her hearing loss, making sure she was comfortable every step of the way.
“I just adore her, she’s wonderful. She’s made such a difference to my hearing. She’s just great,” Teresa explains.
The highlight of Teresa’s service with Audiology on Call was the ability to be treated inside her own home, which she confirms made her feel comfortable and safe, adding,
“She’s been vaccinated, she wears the mask, she brought in hand sanitizer, cleaning cloths, and all of that.
“She’s taking all of the precautions, not just for herself but for her patients. I think it’s very important.”
Although it took Teresa a while to effectively treat her hearing loss, she doesn’t want others to follow the same path. She has one simple message for those in the same position as her,
“Please, go ahead and do it. Don’t delay. The longer you wait, the harder it is, and the more isolated in some ways you become.
“Like I said, you don’t want to be involved in conversations, because you have to ask everybody to repeat.
“And then, everybody gets tired of it, gets tired of having to talk and raise their voices and just repeat, repeat, because I got that. I wish I had found her several years sooner.”

How Dr. Stephany Sun Can Help
When Was Your Last Hearing Assessment?
Although we all regularly have our teeth checked, an annual physical, and a regular eye test, hardly any of us regularly test our hearing.
Yet with 1 in 8 of us having some form of hearing loss and the World Health Organization predicting that hearing loss will double by 2050, isn’t it about time that you started to also regularly test your hearing?
Hearing assessments are quick, non-invasive, and you receive the results immediately. Best of all, with Audiology on Call’s concierge approach, you can receive your hearing test without leaving your home.
HEARING AID TECHNOLOGY
Small, Discreet, and Almost Invisible Hearing Technology
Hearing technology has dramatically progressed from the old, clunky devices that many people have a stigma toward, with today’s technology being small, discreet, and hardly noticeable.
In fact, many of our patients tell us that their friends, loved ones, or colleagues have not even noticed that they’re wearing hearing aids!
With honest, transparent, and simple pricing, you can achieve better hearing with access to great technology for significantly less than you’ll find elsewhere.
HEARING AID TUNE-UPS
Ensuring Your Hearing Devices Are Performing to Their Best
Over time, the performance of your hearing aids can decrease, yet due to the slow and gradual decline, it can be almost impossible for you to notice. That’s why having your devices regularly cleaned, maintained, and optimized is so important.
If you’re an existing hearing aid wearer, then you can benefit from Audiology on Call’s “Tune-Up” – this is where one of our experts will come to your home, office, or place of work and professionally clean, check, and carry out any preventive measures for a small fixed fee.
This will ensure your devices are working to the best of their abilities, you protect your investment, and you continue to hear the life that you love.
