I have had the pleasure of working with SoundPoint Audiology & Hearing beginning June 2017. Having the ability to help others by providing excellent care is what I am most passionate about. I have worked in customer service for over 10 years and have resided in Arizona since 2010. I enjoy outdoor activities, traveling, and above all, spending time with my family, especially my two year old daughter.

Five stars. Over a period of years I have been to several audiologist and to several Hearing Aid stores. I have never had the pleasant experience that I have had at SoundPoint Audiology. Dr. Shepel and Jennifer are first rate and it is a pleasure to do business with them....

I had my hearing checked out because I thought it had changed. My hearing aids were readjusted and now they work great.
