Earl Johnson, Au.D., Ph.D., Owner and Audiologist


A primary motivator for Earl pursuing higher education at a university was to earn a license to practice healthcare.  His nickname among others in elementary and secondary school was Dr. Earl and he still likes that name.  He found his passion in Audiology (avoiding medical school loans) as an amalgamation of a well-rounded appreciation for human anatomy, math, science, computers and electronics, economics, linguistics, and even a little persuasion and philosophy.   His mother, a 35-year nursing instructor introduced him to the profession at the age of 17 and his father’s placement of his eldest son in summer jobs helped ensure a dedication to pursing higher education.  He received an Audiology license in 2005 and later received a PhD in Hearing Sciences from Vanderbilt University and an AuD from the University of Florida.

Dr. Earl has been an audiologist specializing in the patient experience with hearing aids for 18 years.  He serves patients at a local hospital and participates as an associate professor in the education of current students in the East Tennessee State University (ETSU) Audiology program.  His research has been published in peer-review and industry trade journals and presented at state and national conferences as well as several international conferences as an invited speaker.

In 2013, he began a professional LLC practice to serve patients in his community and make presentations when invited. The quintessence of research and education as well as professional experience is dissemination to share knowledge and perspectives while continuing to learn from others.  All of which are important reasons for the importance of hearing!  He lives in Johnson City with his wife, Marie and together have a son named Nash.  They enjoy their family time at home as well as trips to visit family and occasional trips to the beach.
