Working with an Audiologist that follows best practices (just like Dr. Cliff does in his clinics) is the key to a life-transforming hearing care experience. Treating hearing loss properly is complex, and requires a provider willing to invest the time and resources in your optimal hearing results.
Only about 20% of hearing providers follow best practices in audiology...choosing a Best Practice Pro Provider ensures that you will receive hearing care that includes Best Practices -- leading to your best hearing in the situations and with the people that matter the most.
Dr. Sanders has completed a thorough 1 on 1 vetting process with Dr. Cliff himself to verify that he follows Best Practices in patient care.
As an independent Private Practice Audiologist, Dr. Sanders will hand-pick the best hearing technology available for your unique needs.

Why do you feel Best Practices are critical for optimal Hearing Aid performance?
"Best Practices are imperative for optimal Hearing Aid performance. Hearing can be very subjective. It’s not once size or sound fit all. Each person and their hearing is unique. But there needs to be a standard to start with. By establishing and maintaining Best Practices and using Evidence Based Practice to judge an Audiologist can ensure that their patients are getting the most out of their hearing. Everyone deserves to have the highest quality service and care."
Why did you feel compelled to join the Dr. Cliff Approved Provider Network?
"I wanted to join the Dr. Cliff network to be part of group with the same ideals. Too many times have I seen patients not receive even the most basic levels of care when they come to me from a hearing aid store. Being a member of this group keeps me on my toes. It makes me maintain the highest standards of care for each and every one of my patients."
What do you like best about Audiology?
"Audiology is amazing. I love that I can find a problem and fix it right away. Helping someone who is isolated and separate because of their ability to hear is an amazing feeling. In just moments I can take someone with poor hearing and improve their situation. Meeting with my patients a week after their fitting and listening to the stories of connection and discovery are just wonderful. There is nothing like that feeling of touching people’s lives in this deep and meaningful way."
What was your journey to becoming an Audiologist?
"Growing up my mother was a nurse and my father a scientist. So medical care and science were in my blood. As I was going through college I discovered my own hearing loss. Seeing the change in my own life made me want to be able to offer that same change to others. So many people with hearing loss get left behind and become isolated and lonely. I want to prevent that."
