We opened Sikorski Hearing Aid Center, Inc. based on the belief that everyone deserves to hear better no matter his or her budget, lifestyle, or hearing needs. Simply put, there is no center like ours. We don’t believe in selling hearing aids; rather, we believe in educating people on what constitutes hearing impairment, coping strategies, treatment options, instruments that may provide help, and access to medical professionals regarding surgical options.

Samantha currently owns and operates a hearing aid practice with two locations in Northern Wisconsin. Though not a medical doctor, Samantha works with many Audiologists, physicians and ENT’s to bridge the gap that often exists in hearing healthcare. Samantha specializes in practice administration (with regard to managed care participation as well as initiating the best practices for Hearing Care Professionals) and patient education.
Samantha got her start in the industry as an Occupational Hearing Conservationist in 2001. After developing Endolymphatic Hydrops in 2002, she switched gears from hearing loss prevention to hearing loss treatment options and became licensed by the state of Wisconsin as a Hearing Instrument Specialist. She obtained her Audioprosthology designation in 2006 after completing a 13-month program and 120-hour practicum. She worked for various private practices before opening her own practice in Spooner on December 8th, 2014.
Owning her own practice allows her to ensure health is always at the forefront of care. To do this, she routinely consults with her patient’s physicians to seek guidance and follow up. Samantha’s ability to develop a strong network of physicians and her desire to put patient healthcare first has directly saved three lives.

Patient Care Coordinator - Spooner
Joie is a native to the Spooner area; she was born, raised, and went to school here. Growing up, softball was her passion and she played on the Spooner Rails' high school softball team all four years. She is an avid outdoors lover. She enjoys fishing, hanging out with her cat, Binx, and camping.
Joie's first job started when she was only 9 years old, where she helped her grandma in the gift shop at the Spooner hospital. She grew up in the retail world and later moved into the medical field of dentistry. After spending some time together, Joie decided to make the move to the field of audiology and is learning it quickly.
Kathryn is, simply put, amazing. She is the person who consistently monitors manufacturers invoices to make sure there are no mistakes, as well as monitors patient invoices to ensure that no errors have occurred. She works along side Samantha to negotiate pricing to save our patients money.
Even though Kathryn works at Sikorski Hearing on a part-time basis, she is the first to jump in whenever a patient has a need. Her caring, compassionate personality is what makes her an incredible asset to the team. Kathryn has been with Sikorski Hearing since 2015.
Kathryn lives in Spooner with her husband, Bob.
