The field of audiology was a natural career path for Dr. Christian — he was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs by two deaf parents. He learned sign language at a young age and spent a lifetime around people with hearing loss. He saw how hearing loss affected communication and the impact it had on relationships. “I often had to interpret conversations between my dad and his mother because of their inability to communicate,” he says.
Situations like this drove Dr. Christian to pursue a career in helping those with hearing loss. He completed his undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and his Doctorate in Audiology at Salus University. Through experiences and advancements in technology, he is dedicated to creating a personalized solution for each patient.
Dr. Christian and his wife were married in June 2005, and a few years later they added a couple boys to their family. When not at work, you’ll find them at the baseball field, hockey arena, or just about anywhere sports are involved!
