The practice, formerly known as Yuma Ear Nose & Throat, is located at 2320 S. 22nd Drive and is owned by Dr. Graham Driscoll, a Yuma otolaryngologist.
Patients experiencing hearing problems are examined by Dr. Driscoll, and by an audiologist who can then make recommendations to them about whether they should be fitted with hearing aids or whether they should receive followup medical care.
“We offer individual attention and personal care,” said Melinda Crittenden, a clinical audiologist with Ear Nose & Throat of Yuma. “We’re available to solve problems; we have the best interests of the patients in mind. We listen to them.
“We take pride in offering advanced capabilities for diagnosing and treating any medical condition of the ear. We offer a wide selection of hearing aids, including the latest in digital technology. Our number one goal is complete patient satisfaction with their experiences in our office.”
