Join The Conversation

Our Professional Staff

Dedicated to the cure for "What"

For patients with equilibrium issues, our goal is to identify the source of the problem and restore their balance and confidence to resume active lives without a fear of falling.

Our goal for patients with hearing difficulties is to accurately diagnose their loss and provide high quality solutions that fit their budget and lifestyle. We want to help them "Join the Conversation."

James M. Morris

James M. Morris
President & Hearing Specialist

Jim has been a hearing instrument specialist since 2000. In 2001, he purchased HEARINC to develop it into a full audiology practice. As a native of Canton, he received his B.S. in Aerospace and Manufacturing from Kent State University in 1973. Jim became interested in audiology in 1998, when his father, grandfather, and several uncles - who worked in industry and served in World War II - were constantly complaining about their current remedies to hearing loss. With a corporate background in problem diagnostics and solutions applications, Jim felt he could take a different approach to correcting hearing loss, one that restores patients to the most active lifestyle possible.
