About the Specialist, Steve Stout

Steve Stout, owner of Family Hearing Center, is a Hearing Specialist and member of THAA. He met Kristie, his wife, in the eighth grade and they have been married for 42 years.

His office is full of photos of 11 grandchildren from his three children. Because he loves to collect family, Steve has seven more honorary grandchildren from families he has collected. He loves to spend time with his family spoiling his grandchildren.
Steve loves a good project! In fact, he makes handmade Indian love flutes, drums, and archery bows and arrows. His grandchildren have been using bows and arrows since the age of three! Steve loves to hunt (usually with a camera), fish, hike, and go camping. When not doing wood-working, making Indian love flutes or working on leather products, he attends mountain man rendezvous, and loves to ride BIG RED—his motorcycle that helps him forget all of his troubles. He also recently purchased a 1950 international truck that he is turning into a Rat rod.

Steve is very involved with his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and spends many hours helping with local missionaries and various local and regional projects. 

Steve's Story

Steve began having hearing problems as a child, and had his first ear surgery at seven years old. He is familiar with the physical pain and discomfort of hearing loss, and he knows it can be frustrating to  communicate with the treating physician or specialist. This has motivated him throughout his career.

Steve began working in the hearing field a number of years ago and has never looked back. He finally found a way to help himself as well as those others in his family who also suffer hearing loss.

Steve worked for a local Beltone office in Wichita Falls for a number of years until he was offered a job with a national company.  He traveled for National Hearing Centers, opening and operating new stores.  He interviewed, hired, and trained new employees including hearing specialists and audiologists to manage new offices throughout the Midwest.

With the skills he had acquired and the support of his family and friends, Steve opened the Family Hearing Center and a very important dream was fulfilled. He genuinely cares about his clients and is committed to improving their quality of life through specially adapting the hearing instruments to each client's need. He listens intently to each concern and addresses them individually to create the exact combination to better the hearing experience for clients and their loved ones. Although Steve has been working in the hearing field for many years, he continues to learn each day. He treats each client as if they are truly a part of the family, and offers his expertise and experience to each person to provide long-term care.
