Michael W. Kemp, MS
Michael is both an audiologist and the Co-Owner of Avalon Hearing Aid Centers. He also owns and works in another practice called Hearing Rehabilitation Solutions. Michael is well respected in our community for the expertise he brings to worker’s compensation cases and cost containment. As an audiologist, he specializes in diagnostic testing and works closely with your doctor. Most people’s experiences of this type of testing is cold and sterile, leaving them to feel more like a number and less like an individual human. But they are pleasantly surprised, and even shocked, at Michael’s unique approach to doing a case history and testing. He creates an inviting and safe space for you to be heard and respected. Michael especially loves to work with veterans and hear their stories.
