What they do

Accent on Hearing is a medically based audiology service, working with patients throughout Douglas and Elbert counties. They perform hearing tests, evaluate for hearing aids, and troubleshoot or repair hearing aids. They can also evaluate for middle ear problems. This is not the first time Accent on Hearing has won a Best of the Best award. In fact, this will be their 8th year in a row of receiving it. Joanne LaPorta, founder and owner, attributes the community’s response to their service, compassion and empathy. They understand the implications of hearing loss which, by not hearing conversations, can lead to isolation, memory problems, depression, balance issues and cognitive decline. Knowing that their patients might be hesitant in starting a life with hearing aids, the practice allows patients to try them for a week before purchasing.

History

While taking a year off, LaPorta started planning a practice of her own with a friend who was a podiatrist in Castle Rock. They mapped out a plan and the practice officially started by renting out two rooms in that friend’s office 17 years ago. With the support of her friends and family, Joanne was able to move her practice to its current location within five years.
