Hearing protection is important for everyone, but it is especially important for people who are exposed to loud noise on a regular basis. Loud noise can damage your hearing, and once your hearing is damaged, it cannot be repaired.

There are a variety of hearing protection devices available, including earplugs, earmuffs, and custom-fit hearing protection. We offer a range of hearing protection options to fit your needs.

I started with this practice ten years ago, and when the audiologist retired, I was wondering I’d like “the new guy” as well. I totally do! Dr. Tomas Cabrera is so nice, so skilled, I was smitten right away. Getting to see pictures of his newborn, at my insistent request, was the icing on the cake! He’s professional, warm, patient and really knows his stuff. I couldn’t be happier. And Gail is still as wonderful as ever.

I am a fellow audiologist from SC and just met Dr. Cabrera today. He welcomed my family to his beautiful office and from our short time together I can tell he is fantastic with patients as well! He is set up for thorough best practice care with thoughtful business practices. If you are in the Charlotte area, visit Premier Audiology!

This is hands down the best place for anyone looking for an audiologist. Very individual attention to you and your needs. I use to go to 1 of the big ENT group and they never tweaked my hearing aids like Dr. C and Gayle do. You are not a number here. Was upset that things might change when Dr. Seaborg retired but not so..the same excellent service. Christina found someone who could fill her very big shoes (been coming for 9+ years.) I tell everyone they need hearing aids that this is the place to come. I brought my 82 year old mother-in-law and Dr. C and Gayle are always soooo patient with her. Thank you for the same awesome awesome care. Ive been wearing hearing aids for over 20 years and I am hearing better now than I did 10 years ago.

Tomas Cabrera, Au.D. is very thorough, thoughtful, helpful and kind. He gives articulate and informed answers to any questions I may have about my hearing and my hearing aids. I trust him completely. The office environment is very comfortable and calming. I love my hearing aids!

I visited Premier Audiology & Hearing Aid Center without an appointment to see if they could help resolve a problem with the hearing aids of a relative, who is 97 years old. Dr. Cabrera and Gale Prakin were most accepting, accommodating and helpful. They are an asset to the community and profession.
