In 1967, E. Pat Carter, Jr., launched the first private practice audiology establishment in the state of Indiana. In partnership with several ear, nose and throat physicians, Pat developed an unprecedented reputation in the Fort Wayne community and throughout the state as the premiere Audiology/Hearing Aid Dispensing private practice servicing the needs of hearing impaired individuals.
In 1988, Dr. Mark P. Carter joined the practice and the company began expanding their expert Audiology and hearing aid dispensing services into neighboring communities throughout northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio. In 1997, Pat and Mark joined a large ear, nose and throat practice to help expand their Audiology and hearing care services. The company’s name changed several times while on its way to becoming one of the largest Audiology and hearing aid dispensing practices in the state.
In 2009, Pat and Mark stepped out again, along with Dr. Jennifer L. Wagner, and established Carter Hearing Clinics, LLC. Their goal was to reestablish the small business rapport and exceptional patient care that had been their unique practice model for so many years. Their Audiology team has continued to expand in their distinctive qualities and unequaled philosophies regarding patient care, integrity and aural rehabilitation. These attributes have distinguished Carter Hearing Clinics from all other practices in the area of patient care and patient services and the consequential results of patient satisfaction in the field of hearing rehabilitation.
