Eric Wolvers – Licensed Hearing Instrument Specialist – West Des Moines
Eric has been a Licensed Hearing Instrument Specialist since 2013. In that time he headed up three offices in the Des Moines area and assisted over 1,500 patients with their hearing needs. His favorite part of the job is getting to know his patients, and build a long-lasting relationship. Hearing their success stories is what drives him on a daily basis. He got into the hearing business because of his customer service background, and knowledge of computers. With recent upgrades in hearing technology, Eric’s patients love how easy he makes it for them to adjust their hearing aids with their smartphone.
When not at the office Eric is at home with his wife and their young son. Eric’s wife will tell you he hasn’t found a sport he doesn’t like. He enjoys playing basketball, tennis, and golf. Anytime he can get out in the woods with his grandpa is a good day.
