Brandon Spencer, HIS

California Board Certified Hearing Aid Specialist

Brandon Spencer, Stuart’s son, is now a third-generation hearing aid professional. In 2010, he had the fortuitous opportunity to train side-by-side, and intern with, world-renowned founder and CEO of Starkey Hearing Technologies, Bill Austin. Under Mr. Austin’s master tutelage, Brandon was given intensive training at Starkey’s Center of Excellence where he helped fit celebrity Lou Ferrigno and others who have seriously complicated hearing losses. Part of Brandon’s training included participating in two mission trips with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, one to Mexico where he helped fit over 2300 children with hearing aids, and one to the Oregon School for the Deaf, where the entire school, the staff, the parents and others who needed to hear better were fit with hearing aids. Like his father, Brandon finds deep pleasure in and finds it greatly rewarding to participate in the humanitarian cause of the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Licensed with the State of California as a Hearing Instrument Specialist since 2011, Brandon has become invaluable to his patients and Advanced Ear Care. He has proven to be a very competent help to us, and the patients love his warm, patient, friendly approach. They really appreciate his level of expertise, having learned to trust his insights and professional acumen.
