About Us

Simple and Straightforward Hearing Health Care

We assess ear health and hearing function using diagnostic tests, which can usually be billed to health insurance. The large 4x6 sound booth in our temporary Linwood Mills office, newly equipped with a ramp, allows our audiologists to service patients across the lifespan, including individuals with mobility limitations and those with neurodevelopmental conditions. Our audiologists have extensive pediatric and adult experience, which is difficult to find locally. We will assess lifestyle and communication needs, make recommendations and execute management plans for hearing loss and/or tinnitus. We will also provide services to prevent noise-induced hearing loss (commonly experienced by military personnel, construction workers, and musicians, for example).

Hear Joy and Twin Rivers share the same goal of bringing state of the art care to our local communities. Communication happens where we live and work; we believe that high-quality hearing healthcare should, too. Our providers aim for a heightened standard of practice across each patient, which we would be proud to provide to our very own families and loved ones. As we design our new space in Grafton and continue to improve our Smithfield office, we want to collaborate with professionals in our local community to create the most comfortable and empowering space possible in which to guide you on your communication journey.
