Professional Hearing Associates was formed to create relationships with patients by offering the highest quality of services. Since being in business for the past year those patient relationships have grown, and now Professional Hearing Associates will be expanding their office space to accommodate an even more comprehensive approach to hearing healthcare. Along with expanding their office space Professional Hearing Associates also has plans to increase their coverage area.

Dr. Joe Hopper of Professional Hearing Associates has been serving the local Riverbend community for more than 20 years. With his wife, Kim Hopper, Dr. Hopper decided to open his own practice in the Riverbend dedicated to using the latest technology to diagnose and treat patients’ hearing difficulties and to provide state of the art custom solutions to rehabilitate hearing. With a Doctorate degree in Audiology, Dr. Hopper offers solutions to a multitude of different hearing healthcare needs.

“Professional Hearing Associates is a great addition to our Riverbend area. Dr. Hopper and his office is an asset to our community and will help the Riverbend continue to thrive and grow by helping meeting the healthcare needs of area residents,” explained Dr. Stephanie Monroe of River Bend Chiropractic Center and member of the RiverBend Growth Association’s Board of Directors.

Dr. Hopper is in the business of healthcare not retail. He wants to present you or your loved ones with customized solutions that fit your lifestyle. Professional Hearing Associates provides a number of services and has professionals on staff with the expert knowledge required to treat your hearing healthcare needs. As a private practice, Professional Hearing Associates is geared towards individual patient care and their own treatment plan and goals. As an Audiologist who holds a doctoral degree, Dr. Hopper has special training in the prevention, identification, assessment, and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders.

“Professional Hearing Associates with Dr. Hopper’s experience and personality makes it easy to connect with him. I think this is the main reason for the growth of his business this past year,” expressed Amelia Brinkman of Regions Bank and Ambassador for the RiverBend Growth Association.
