Carole Read, formerly of Central Virginia Audiology Services, and Doctors of Audiology Alyson Lake and Peggy Warner work alongside Drs. Courville, Hutchison, Meshkinfam, and Cline to create Lynchburg's only comprehensive audiological and medical hearing healthcare team.

Our caring, professional staff is available to provide a full range of diagnostic testing and state-of-the-art hearing aid services. The team of audiologists and physicians is dedicated to providing clinical excellence and unsurpassed patient service.

What is an audiologist?

An audiologist is a professional who has received a Master’s or Doctoral degree from an accredited university graduate program. This means your services are being provided by a professional who has spent between two to four years exclusively in the areas of ear and hearing disorders. The physician-audiologist team is trained to diagnose, manage, and treat hearing or balance problems for individuals from birth through adulthood. If a patient’s hearing problem is non-medical in nature, the audiologist will recommend a treatment plan that incorporates a hearing aid or other assisting devices. There are no other professionals better trained or able to serve your needs.
