Wolfe Audiology Services in Iowa
Aging is a natural part of life and is often accompanied by the development of eye diseases and hearing loss. While Wolfe Eye Clinic was established in 1919 and primarily specialized in eye disease treatment, many patients simultaneously suffered from loss of hearing as well. In 1983, Wolfe Audiology was founded as an expansion of Wolfe Eye Clinic’s Marshalltown clinic to better serve patient needs after two ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors joined the practice. Together, they began offering comprehensive hearing loss evaluation and treatment services and dispensing hearing aids while helping grow the practice from one location to four. Since then, Wolfe Audiology has become known for providing personalized care, offering the latest in hearing aid technologies and a “one-stop-shop” for audiological needs and hearing aids in Iowa.
