After graduating from Purdue University Richard Namikas moved to Venice in 1991 to help the hearing impaired. He has been the owner and operator of this private practice since 1996. When the Doctorate of Audiology became possible he immediately invested in furthering his education to better serve his patients.
With a Masters Degree from University of Cincinnati and a Doctorate from Arizona School of Health Sciences Doctor Adams joined the practice in 2010. She had an extensive history in the Venice and Sarasota area before joining the office. She is dedicated to the improvement of her patients lives through technology and caring.
Since 1996 Doctor Namikas has been a member of the Venice Lions Club. He developed a program to help the poor obtain hearing assistance with hearing aids in Venice. It is our way of giving back to the community. We also want to thank the Hear Now Program of the Starkey Foundation for providing hearing aids we fit and dispense to the needy.
We begin with a comprehensive evaluation to determine hearing and understanding abilities as well as identify medical issues.
Your Doctor of Audiology will discuss the results of your evaluation with you. Any medical condition will be referred to your physician, or a specialist if needed. If hearing aids or other technology will help we can educate you on your options and develop a plan to start making your life better.
Once your needs are identified you are fit with the latest technology and it is customized to your hearing, lifestyle, and personal preferences. That is just the beginning. We see all our hearing aid patients every six months whether they are having problems or not. We check for earwax., clean and check the hearing aids, perform routine maintenance to keep you hearing the sounds and people in your life.
