It has been my great honor to serve you and Arizona for the past 28 years, and with sincere regret I am writing this letter to inform you that I have decided to retire from the practice of Otolaryngology as of February 1st, 2020. Please be advised that because of my retirement we will be discontinuing the Audiology practice. I will be unable to continue your care or renew your prescriptions after that date.

But I am pleased to announce a new service partnership with SoundPoint Audiology, a hearing health practice that has been serving patients in the Tucson area for over 15 years. With 3 convenient clinic locations in the Tucson area, and 12 locations statewide, they are one of the premier hearing health practices in the state of Arizona. SoundPoint is positioned to take excellent care of my Audiology patients and will honor all warranties and service agreements currently fulfilled by Carlson Ear and Throat Associates. Please contact them to schedule your next hearing aid service appointment at one of the locations below.
