Hearing Solutions of Alabama is an Audiology Private Practice that was founded in 2017 by Dr. Beth Hoven and Dr. Allison Kelly. Through much prayer and a lot of hard work and diligence, Dr. Kelly and Dr. Hoven created a business plan for a private practice committed to comprehensive audiological services for adult and pediatric patients in Central Alabama.

Patient Care Coordinator
Laurie Allen is our friendly patient care coordinator who you will first meet here at Hearing Solutions of Alabama. She is a native to the River Region and is married with three children and lives on a small family farm in south Montgomery county. She enjoys spending her time with family, going to church, camping, lake life and attending sporting events for her kids (trust her, there's a lot of sporting events!).
There are many different kinds of people who are permitted to fit patients with hearing aids, but not all of them offer the same level of care. Audiologists must complete doctoral-level education as well as supervised hands-on training fellowships before they can receive their license and begin seeing patients.
This means that audiologists have a deep understanding of the hearing system from a medical perspective. If your hearing loss has a medical cause, we have the expertise to identify what's wrong and determine what can be done to help it, and in some cases we can provide treatment.
