Ryan Hamilton, Au.D.
Owner, Doctor of Audiology
My interest in the field of audiology stems from my love of music. As a guitarist and pianist, I became curious about the process of sound in the human ear. This ultimately led to a desire to help those affected by hearing impairment. Advantage Audiology and Hearing Center was founded in 2009 to re-establish connections to life.
I have a doctorate degree in audiology and have over twenty years of experience in the field. I utilize an individualized process to meet every client’s unique needs. Through continuing education, I am able to incorporate the latest cutting edge technologies and fitting philosophies into your hearing aid fitting. This insures that you receive the most benefit from your technology. You can be sure that you will be seen in a timely manner and will never feel rushed or pressured.
My wife Abby, our four children and I live in a home on Main Street a couple doors from Gaylord’s new city hall. Our office happens to be directly across the street from the home I was brought to after being born, so I truly feel that I have roots in Northern Michigan. I am excited to have the opportunity to serve another great community in Grayling, and hope to be here for years to come!

Friendly, Reliable Hearing Care
Rather than trying to appeal to the masses, we prefer to develop long-term, one-on-one relationships. We provide personal care to each of our patients, stressing prevention, and help them to avoid problems before they occur. That’s why our patients return to us regularly.
Patient satisfaction is the principal reason why our practice and patient family has grown over the years. In fact, that is why 95% of our new patients are referrals from existing patients. Providing the care and service that engenders this trust is the foundation of our practice.
We want to know all about you and are committed to you and your experience on your path to better hearing.
The technology available to the hearing impaired has changed dramatically over the past few years. But the technology is only as good as the person who fits you.
We will work to make sure that your journey to better hearing stays well within the budget you’ve set for that journey.
