Hearing Disorders

Joe Crnkovic (Sank-o-Vic) has been in the hearing aid business all of his life. You might say that he was born into it. His father started dispensing hearing aids in the Brazos Valley in 1963. He began working alongside his father as a licensed hearing aid dispenser in 1983 and was certified by the American Conference of Audioprosthology in 1985. He had the honor of serving on the Board of The American Conference of Audioprosthology from 1987 to 1988. He is a member of the Texas Hearing Aid Association.

As impressive as his experience and credentials are he has another most important qualification: he himself is hearing impaired and uses the devices he dispenses. He truly understands your hearing problems.

He is well versed in the latest technologies and matches these high technology hearing devices specifically to your hearing loss for the best possible understanding of speech.
