About Advanced Hearing Solutions of Greenville
Get to Know Your Owner…
My name is Dr. Tara Bailey, DPM, HIS and I’m the founder of Advanced Hearing Solutions of Greenville, LLC. I spent more than 20 years in the healthcare field before providing advanced hearing services to local patients here in South Carolina at my Greenville hearing center. After receiving my undergraduate degree from The College of William and Mary, I attended Temple University/PCPM for four years to obtain my podiatric degree. After completing school, I finished a three-year surgical residency as a reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon upon which I was asked to work for an orthopedic group in South Florida. Over the years, in addition to being in private practice, I worked in a variety of healthcare settings including multiple hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, wound care centers and, most recently, with a family medicine group. I volunteered in a free clinic for migrant workers and also joined a team performing free surgeries in Mexico for patients who couldn’t afford it. With my background, I’m often asked, “How did you get into hearing healthcare and why open a hearing center in Greenville, South Carolina?”
Why Advanced Hearing Solutions of Greenville?
After moving to Greenville, I decided to go for a private practice to spend more time with my three boys. After working with a local hearing aid dispensing group, I became licensed in South Carolina as a Hearing Instrument Specialist. From there, I noticed something was lacking. Although Greenville didn’t have a shortage of hearing center providers, patients didn’t have everything they needed, so I decided to change that. For instance, many locations lacked the capacity to schedule hearing aid appointment around patients’ availability. Some Greenville hearing aid providers have only particular brands of hearing aids instead of options that cover all price points. Other providers offer return visits, but for a fee each time. At Advanced Hearing Solutions, all visits are covered with your purchase, so you don’t have to pay ‘extra’. In addition, our practice offers special financing as well as a variety of levels of technology. Plus, I think hearing equipment is exciting because innovations happen on a regular basis. For example, devices such as the Bluetooth compatible hearing aids can “stream” sound from a phone or device directly into hearing aids.
Another benefit is being able to work with a skilled and experienced audiologist, Linda Cummins, who has helped patients since 1993. After getting her Masters in Audiology from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, she received her Doctor of Audiology from AT Still University in Mesa, Arizona. For more than two decades, she has served pediatric to geriatric patients in multi-facets of hearing health. We’re grateful she has brought her skills here to AHS. Most of all though, I find a great deal of personal satisfaction knowing people are living fuller lives thanks to the hearing aids and guidance we provide. So, if you or someone you love is suffering hearing loss, make sure you contact us today.
