Kricket Audiology, LLC was created in the summer of 2011 after Dr. Kricket had been working as an audiologist for more than a dozen years around the tri-state area. Dr. Kricket had been working for Dr. Alter Peerless (a prominent Cincinnati ENT) for six of those years when she purchased her audiology division and became independent. Her first several years she referred to as "my one armed paper hanger with the hives" period, where she scheduled patients, conducted the evaluations and rehabilitation, billed insurance, and wore every other hat in the business. This hard work and dedication has expanded her business to a newer, larger, and more convenient location in Kenwood, a satellite office in Anderson and allowed her to add two more members to her team.
