Why Consult An Audiologist?
At Memphis Hearing Aid, our highly skilled audiologists are trained in the prevention, diagnosis and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders and are dedicated to helping people with hearing problems. An audiologist will conduct a comprehensive diagnostic hearing assessment to determine the type and severity of your hearing loss.
According to a national survey, hearing amplification can help people improve their overall health by strengthening interpersonal relationships, reducing anger and frustration, improving emotional stability and self-reliance, and enhancing social activity.*
Hearing aids significantly improve quality of life for many individuals by providing better hearing.
If you have noticed difficulty hearing or communicating with people in certain situations, a complimentary hearing evaluation and consultation may answer many of your questions. It will change your life!
The following pages will provide information regarding our services, policies and procedures and various types of amplification. We welcome any questions that you have about your hearing health care needs.

Dr. Ben Cox, a licensed and certified audiologist, founded Memphis Hearing Aid and Audiological Services in February of 1984. Dr. Cox is the son of deaf parents and this has given him a unique experience on understanding the effects of hearing loss in everyday life.
With his training at the University of Memphis and at the Arizona School of Health Sciences and in combination with his upbringing, Dr. Cox has the skills necessary to help anyone who has any degree of hearing loss.
Dr. Cox also has a desire to assist those who are not able to afford hearing aids. He has gone on several mission trips including the countries of the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, the Gaza Strip, and Ecuador. Through his efforts, Memphis Hearing Aid has donated hearing aids and audiometric equipment to many countries around the world. Dr. Cox has been recognized by the Mid-South Council for the Hearing Impaired, the University of Memphis, and Lion’s Club International for his work with the hearing impaired. He is very active in the deaf/hearing-impaired ministry at Kirby Woods Baptist Church where he serves as a deacon and teacher.

Dr. Rena McLellan Booth, a licensed and certified audiologist, has been with Memphis Hearing Aid since September of 1993.
She earned her Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree and her Master of Arts degree in Audiology from the University of Memphis. Upon graduation with her Master’s degree she joined the staff of Memphis Hearing Aid.
At that time, she primarily provided audiological services to various Ear, Nose, and Throat physicians’ offices with whom we contract. She performed routine hearing evaluations, auditory-evoked potential testing, vestibular testing, and hearing aid evaluations and fittings.
In March of 2006 she earned her Doctor of Audiology degree from the Arizona School of Health Sciences. Advancement to the doctoral level of her profession enhanced and broadened her knowledge regarding hearing loss, aural rehabilitation, and tinnitus management, among many other ear and hearing issues.
In January of 2002 she became a partner at Memphis Hearing Aid. She now works exclusively with hearing aid patients at our Germantown location. Her patients describe her as well-informed, warm, caring, and a compassionate person who truly cares about their hearing health…and truly values each person who enters our office.
On a personal note, she has been married to Henry Booth, III since 1996. They are the proud parents of 3 young children: Camryn, Alec, and Ryan. Her family keeps her very busy outside of work. Her hobbies include exercising, travel, and all water sports. She is a member of Advent Presbyterian Church where she volunteers her time teaching the youth and working with the children.
