Hearing Professionals

Royce LaMarr

Royce LaMarr grew up helping people with all types of health crises as he worked in his father’s pharmacy since he was 11 years old.  That experience birthed a deep desire to see people overcome personal and health challenges that evolved into Royce’s entry into the hearing health field in 1989.

Since 1989 Royce’s practice has served over 4000 patients in Missouri and Illinois, and Royce has personally recruited, mentored, and supervised 5 Specialists in this field who have achieved National Board Certification and are leaders in the field today.

Royce’s practice grew to over 10 offices at one point serving the Bi-State Missouri and Illinois region and although the practice is independent, became the largest dispenser for one of the major U.S. laboratories in the state of Missouri.

Today Royce and his staff are personally involved in the day to day care of his patients and helping them successfully utilize the technology available to improve their communication skills and enjoy life, family, and friends to the best of their ability.

In addition, Royce and Gayle have been married for 45 years and have 4 grown children, 15 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.  Royce’s interest outside of his hearing practice is their church, boating and golf.  They currently reside in Terre DuLac, Missouri.
