Welcome. Dr. Scott Marquardt here bringing you our monthly newsletter.
It’s November! I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year already! We’ve had an incredible year, and with our terrific team, wonderful patients, and an incredible community, we truly have so much to be thankful for!
With Thanksgiving around the corner, we want to be able to give our community the best care in preparation for the holiday season. This time of the year can be very isolating for many, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are positive steps that we can all take to make the holidays more comfortable and to keep communication flowing with friends, family, and colleagues.
You don’t ever need to feel embarrassed about your hearing loss – own it, and be transparent with others about what they can do to make communication more comfortable and less frustrating.
We are so grateful to be able to share in your hearing health journeys, and we make it our mission to ensure you never miss a moment. We wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

Hearing Health Tip
When you know you will encounter loud sounds for a lengthy time, plan ahead by bringing ear protection.
Set volume controls on headphones and TVs to a safe decibel level, and keep ear protection, such as earplugs/defenders, earmuffs, noise-canceling headphones, or personal protective equipment, nearby in your home and car.

Well, it looks like the spotlight is on me this month, so I’m going to tell you why I wanted to become a doctor of audiology. I knew early on in my education that I wanted to be in a profession that helped others. My dad was a preacher and mom a teacher. They have always lived a life of service. I considered both those professions, but ultimately, I really wanted to be in healthcare. One day at Valparaiso, I was at an event for freshman.
The event allowed you to talk to other students of any major. I spotted a large group of girls at one booth and thought maybe I should look into what they were studying to be. It was audiology!
What started out as a freshman looking for dates turned in to the perfect profession for me. I fell in love with the profession and, eventually, an audiologist as well.
After completing my bachelor of arts in 1992, I went on to achieve my master of science in audiology from Lamar University in 1994. I then obtained my doctorate in audiology from A.T. Still University School of Health Sciences in 2013. I launched Clarity Hearing in January 2012 with a dream of creating something where I could truly help those who need it.
We were initially located in the Portofino shopping center in Shenandoah, before moving to St. Luke’s Medical Complex in The Woodlands in January 2014. We now have four locations covering Conroe, North Cypress, The Woodlands, 249 & Spring Cypress, Tomball, Spring, Klein, and Montgomery!
In about 2011, my wife and I were noticing that there were a significant number of patients who just couldn’t afford hearing aids and had no options to get help. So, we created The Marquardt Hearing Foundation as a way to help.
If you have old hearing aids that you’d like to donate, let us know. We also take monetary donations, and 100% goes towards the purchase of devices. Also, when you purchase hearing aids from us, a portion of your purchase goes to the foundation to help others.
There really is no greater feeling than waking up and knowing we’ve improved someone’s life. That’s why we’d love to hear your honest review.
If you have a review that you would like to share with us, we would love it if you could click here and help us spread the positive word! Your review could be featured in next month’s newsletter!
And That’s a Wrap!
