About the Practice

At Birmingham Speech & Hearing, we're here to help you improve your hearing, your ability to communicate, and your quality of life. We love helping people hear and speak better. For our audiologists, the most rewarding experience in the world is seeing how patients react when they get their hearing aids and realize how much they've been missing over the years - and how much we can help them get back. For our speech-language pathologists, it is hearing a child say their first word or finally be able to tell a parent I love you.

We've been helping people of all ages in Birmingham hear better for more than three decades. Over that time, we've seen both new and established patients come back year after year or even decade after decade. Patients say it feels like coming home when they visit us because our office is as warm and friendly as we are. We work as a team to provide personalized, compassionate care. When you become our patient, you become like a member of our family, and you can relax knowing that you're in good hands.

When we talk to you about your hearing loss and what your options are, we are always open, direct, honest, and to-the-point. Patients appreciate that we're not pushy like salespeople or clinical like doctors can sometimes be. Instead, we try to help you feel comfortable and supported no matter what decision you make.

Specialties include:

Comprehensive Hearing Testing
Hearing Aid Repair
Ear Wax Removal

"My grandson, Jaxon, is a patient of Dr. Fern McClintock’s. She has been absolutely amazing with him and we love her! He was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia. In the beginning, he was unable to express or speak hardly any words at all. After working with Mrs. Fern, he’s speaking in complete sentences, with only a few vowel and consonant problems! He looks forward to seeing her every week! She makes learning fun for a, now..4 year old! If your child is having trouble speaking or pronouncing words, I highly recommend the wonderful doctors at Birmingham Speech and Hearing!"

"Leslie recommended that I get a new travel charger for my hearing aids and I love it! It is great for a weekend trip and I even took it camping. There are no cords to keep up with and I like that it closes over my hearing aids for more protection. Thanks Leslie!"

"I was being fitted for earplugs and had just an outstanding experience! The receptionist greeted me warmly and professionally. After a very short wait, I was ushered into the doctor’s office where she quickly completed the procedure for fitting me for my earplugs. From start to finish my time at Birmingham Speech & Hearing Associates was a positive experience!"

~ Vann C.

"Fast professional service! No lengthy wait. Sign in staff very friendly. I had the free hearing test. No fudging. I didn't need a hearing aid and wasn't offered or pressured about buying a device. That's golden. If my ear surgery doesn't resolve the issue and if I later find myself in need of hearing device, I will definitely be back!!! Trust is everything!"

"I took my Mom to Birmingham Speech and Hearing to have her fitted with hearing aids. Everyone there was so helpful and friendly and took the time to make sure that every question was answered....and answered them a second time when we went back for a recheck. They were so patient with us....I would highly recommend them to anyone."

"Birmingham Speech & Hearing did a great job getting my hearing back to where it needed to be. The 30 day free trial on hearing aids was a great way for me to learn if this was going to solve my problem. Friendly staff."
