He became Nationally Board Certified in 1999 and continued to practice in Florida until 2004 when he accepted a position with Siemens (now Signia) Hearing Instruments.

He continued to work with Siemens/Signia Hearing as a product trainer working with clinics and presenting at hearing conferences across the US until 2017.
Since 2011, John has grown his practice and helped thousands of patients thanks to his passion and commitment to help others with their hearing needs.
