Meet Florida’s Hearing Care Expert, Dr. Michelle
A Personal Message from Dr. Michelle
We make it a priority to schedule regular check-ups for our teeth, eyes, and bodies; yet, hardly any of us regularly checks our hearing.
Yet the World Health Organization recently stated that “around 466 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss (1), and 34 million of these are children.”
These facts are quite alarming.
Through my regular YouTube videos and online articles, my goal is to help educate America on hearing loss prevention and help them to spot the first signs of hearing loss, in order to avoid the pitfalls of having an untreated hearing loss.
If you or a loved one are experiencing signs of hearing loss and would like my guidance, then you can register your interest by completing the form on this page and we will get in touch to arrange an appointment for a hearing performance tune-up. This is a comprehensive consultation all aimed at ensuring that your long-term hearing health is protected.
It starts by completing the form on this page to either set up an initial virtual appointment or an office appointment at one of Dr. Michelle’s convenient locations.

Dr. Michelle’s Founder Story
Leading hearing care, with a personal touch.
As someone with over twenty-five years’ experience in audiology, Dr. Michelle Couture-Souvenir knows exactly how hearing loss affects people’s lives.
What begins as a minor issue can later produce serious consequences, affecting someone’s temperament, motivation, stress-level, and family time.
With this in mind, she began to promote her self-named brand, “Dr. Michelle”, in late 2018. Her aim was to offer both expert assistance and compassionate service, tailored to individuals.
Today, she uses this holistic, people-centered approach to counsel patients along every step of their hearing journey.
A desire to help others
In 1993, Dr. Michelle completed a master’s degree in the field of audiology. It was during her studies that she discovered her passion for working with people, and especially children.
This led her to take up a position at Miami Children’s Hospital, where she spent 12 and a half years developing her skills and growing as a hearing specialist.
During this time, she acquired further qualifications, including her clinical doctorate in audiology and an MS in health services administration.
She also expanded into volunteer work. As a member of Rotary International – a global welfare charity – Dr. Michelle embarked on life-changing community service projects abroad.
Her next steps
Not one to stand still, Dr. Michelle then looked for a new challenge where she could apply her skills as a doctor of audiology and social organizer.
Entrepreneurship soon became the focus of her endeavors. In October 2005, she opened the doors to her first private practice, Hear 4 Kidz Inc, in Homestead, Florida.
Initially conceived as a premier pediatric audiology clinic, she later changed its name to Hear 4 U Audiology so she could accommodate patients from various generations.
Today, the company has extended its service to locations throughout Miami Dade and Monroe counties, FL, as well as abroad in the lovely country of Panama.
Putting service first
Over the years, Dr. Michelle witnessed how many audiology offices had become focussed on technology. But in her view, this neglected the crucial value of expert service.
In response, she founded her self-titled clinic, Dr. Michelle, based in the Florida Keys. Here, she used her compassion and intellect to develop personalized solutions for each patient.
This centered on individual sessions, where she spent time unpacking a person’s hearing issue – how it affected their temperament, lifestyle choices, and overall contentment.
This forged close, long-term relationships with patients. Today, everyone who trusts Dr. Michelle with their hearing journey benefits from her comprehensive approach to treatment.
Progressing into the future
As time goes by, Dr. Michelle continues to innovate. In 2020, she launched Virtual Appointments – a complimentary telehealth service for new and existing patients.
Patients can also benefit from “remote assist” software, allowing them to receive updates and programming developments from Dr. Michelle direct to their devices.
But besides these advances, she still maintains there are three basic elements needed for someone to achieve incredible hearing care results:
“A motivated patient who’s ready to improve their life; an expert audiologist who will listen and understand their needs; and a quality hearing product.”

Dr. Michelle stood out. Not only because she a highly qualified audiologist, but because she is a warm and caring human being. She has very high standards and was not content with my hearing correction until I was.
Dr. Michelle changed my perspective and my life
My initial thoughts when I met Dr. Michelle was how professional she was, how she listened to my individual concerns and how helpful she was to solve my problems.
I truly feel that Dr. Michelle cares deeply for her patients.

I have been experiencing an increased difficulty hearing with my most recent hearing aid and have recently moved to the area. After reading many reviews, I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Michelle based on the positive comments.

If you are like me and the quality of your hearing is important to you, service is more important than then the instruments themselves.
Dr. Michelle is the best.
After retiring from the Army I have loved working with Dr. Michelle
After my permanent retirement in 2009, I knew that I needed to have my hearing tested again, and, more importantly, I knew I needed to consider hearing devices as part of my Hearing Care.
