I have some hearing loss and pretty loud tinnitus. I set up an appointment with Dr. Keener (about 3 weeks out) based on radio testimonials I had heard. Her office was very efficient and e-savvy with reminders, paperwork, etc. SShow morehe was on time the day of my visit. Her equipment seems state-of-the-art. As a scientist myself, I was able to converse with her as both a lay person and a technical person. The testing was interesting, comprehensive, and with no discomfort of any kind. For me, the results did not indicate a specific hearing aid would help me much, but we did discuss possible self-treatments for tinnitus using white noise and relaxation. There was zero sales pressure. My health insurance would not pre-cover the visit, but he office agreed to submit it anyway and refund any recovery, but even so, the cost was modest, and the information and peace of mind was valuable to me. Overall, a very professional and personal experience. I'm glad I went.

Randal G. • March 19, 2018

Dr. Keener was very professional and was able to connect both with me as an adult parent & my teenage daughter with Misophonia. She was able to give my daughter helpful techniques to decrease her response to triggers as well as inShow moretroduce us to a small ear piece device that may help my daughter as well. With there being so few professionals that treat Misophonia, it was nice to find one within driving distance from our city. It’s one thing to scour the internet in search of help or to try and “self-treat” with that information (which is sometimes conflicting) and/or from the few books on the subject that are available at this time and a whole different ballgame to sit in the same room with someone who has studied Misophonia and understands the toll that this condition can take on an individual and their family. We left her office feeling hopeful. Office staff is also very friendly.

Dr. Keener earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Indiana University in 1994. Two years later, she received her Master’s Degree in Audiology from Purdue University and went on to gain her Doctorate in Audiology from A.T. Still University in 2007.

This relatively new method of treating Tinnitus has shown a success rate of more than 80%, and Dr. Keener received her training directly from the neuroscientist who developed the therapy.

Michael C. • April 11, 2019

Dr. Keener was a patient listener, and I today I felt like there were finally some solutions for my constant tinnitus & mild hearing loss. She took more than enough time to listen to my concerns, answered my questions and gave me a sense of hope. I don't think I can say enough to explain how great this visit went. I would highly recommend her to anyone with tinnitus or hearing loss issues.

Randal G. • March 19, 2018

As soon as I walked in to Dr. Keener's office I felt a sense of privacy and that there would be more one on one attention rather than at a large office where you have multiple people coming in and out of the door and doctors are trying to rush through your exam to get to the next one. Dr. Keener was very thorough with the information that she provided me with and considerate of my symptoms. I was satisfied with my visit and would definitely recommend Dr. Keener

Katrina S. • March 12, 2018

Very thorough and informative first visit. Couldn’t have gone any better.

Tom G. • April 25, 2017

It was a very good experience and Dr. Keener was very helpful.

Matthew B. • April 24, 2017

This is the first time I've seen an Audiologist. Dr Keener was fantastic. She gave me her undivided attention, which as we all know, is rare with doctors! She conducted quite an array of hearing tests (mild hearing loss and tinnitus) and is making recommendations to move forward. I felt like she truly cared. She has given me hope for the first time in years, regarding my ears (haha)!

Margaret W. • April 20, 2017

Very good, was a relaxing visit

Hasan H. • March 28, 2017
