“People come to me saying things like: ‘My wife gets frustrated because she has to repeat things to me. At meetings, others will be laughing at something that was said and I always seem to be left out.’ These experiences diminish the sense of belongingness and connection we all crave as human beings. Being an audiologist allows me to provide solutions and make a true difference for both the patient and the important people in their lives.”
Craig Ford, Au.D. FAAA
For more than 20 years, Dr. Ford has earned the respect of local doctors and patients. He received his doctorate degree from Arizona School of Health Sciences. He enjoys working with patients and providing them with quality hearing care. He is the proud father of five beautiful daughters and is a past president of the Eugene Downtown Lions Club.
“Audiology Professionals is more than a business for me. It is helping others stay connected to family and friends by helping them understand the need for better hearing and how best to improve their hearing situations at home and when in group listening situations. This is a very rewarding career, because we are making a difference in the community.”
What is a Doctor of Audiology?
To be an audiologist in Oregon, a person must have either a Master’s or Doctoral degree from an accredited university graduate program in audiology. Being accepted into an audiology program is as competitive as getting into nursing, dentistry and physical therapy tracks. An audiologist must complete many hours of practicums and a fellowship year of training before being certified. A hearing instrument specialist in Oregon must have at least a high school diploma or GED, and a total of 160 hours of training in theory as well as practical, supervised training.
Corina Casey, Office Manager
My journey with Audiology Professionals began in August of 2007 when we first opened our doors. I am proud to be part of a culture that promotes relationship building and genuine care for the overall health of our patients and their families. In my time away from the office, I enjoy photography, reading, crafting and anything outdoors. I love going on adventures with my husband, daughter and fur-baby.
Cheri Anderson, Patient Care Coordinator
I’ve been employed at Audiology Professionals since June 2012. Our patients are like family and I enjoy each and every one of them. I live up the McKenzie River and enjoy gardening, sewing, repurposing old furniture and classic cars, but my favorite thing is being a grandma, aka “Mimi.”
Gaby Martinez, Patient Care Coordinator
I love working here at Audiology Professionals! The Doctors are good hearted people and I’ve enjoyed learning so much from them. I love helping people live a better life so this job is a perfect fit for me. Aside from enjoying my work here, I also really enjoy spending time with my family and spoiling my pets since I’m a huge animal lover!
Alyssa Haver, Patient Care Coordinator
In 2011 my best friend introduced me to the industry by getting me hired by her father, the owner of an audiology clinic up in Salem. Since then I have worked at OHSU and finally made my way south to Audiology Professionals in September of 2016. I have a Bachelor of Science in Speech & Hearing from Portland State and I look forward to expanding my knowledge in this field even farther. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family in Salem, reading, hiking, and annoying my cats..
