Our Hearing Professionals
What is an Audiologist? An audiologist is a medical professional who diagnoses, treats, and manages individuals with hearing loss or balance problems. Audiologists have received a master's or doctoral degree from an accredited university graduate program. Their academic and clinical training provides the foundation for patient management from birth through adulthood. Audiologists determine appropriate patient treatment of hearing and balance problems by combining a complete history with a variety of specialized auditory and vestibular assessments. Based upon the diagnosis, the audiologist presents a variety of treatment options to patients with hearing loss or balance problems. Audiologists also dispense and fit hearing aids as part of a comprehensive habilitative program. Audiologists may be found working in medical centers and hospitals, private practice settings, schools, government health facilities and agencies, as well as colleges and universities. As a primary hearing health provider, audiologists refer patients to physicians when the hearing or balance problem requires medical or surgical evaluation or treatment.
Kathleen M Haasch, Au.D.
Doctor of Audiology
Hello, I’m Dr. Katheen Haasch and I am the founder of Medical Hearing Associates, Ltd. I am a Certified Audiologist and hold my doctorate from Salus University Elkins Park, PA. I am a member of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology.
In April of 2009 I graduated with my doctorate degree, which was a very proud moment for both my family and myself. I have a strong belief in continued education and best practices in Audiology. My strengths include challenging hearing loss cases, communication with patients/ families and finding solutions. But of course, I could not do it alone and have a wonderful team of professionals that work alongside me at Medical Hearing Associates. I strive to give each patient five-star service and listen to what their needs may be. I’m devoted to what I do and hope that my patients feel that same devotion and commitment.
At home, I have been married for over thirty years to my husband, Jim and have three fantastic grown children. I and the proud “Nana” to three granddaughters with a new grandchild on the way. If not in the office I am making precious memories with my children and grandchildren up in the Crivitz area at our newly purchased cottage.
Ashley Hoerth, Au.D.
Doctor of Audiology
When walking into the office each day, I thoroughly look forward to each patient and getting the opportunity to know each person individually. While getting to know my patients is a joy, I take great pride in being a resource for them and keeping them connected to their friends and families through better hearing! By focusing on truly listening to what my patients have to say, I can better understand their concerns and what is most important to them. We work together to reach specific hearing goals. I have been working as an audiologist with Medical Hearing Associates, LTD for over 9 years. When I went off to college at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, I intended on becoming a speech and language therapist; however, as it happened during my Introduction to Audiology coursework my brother was going thru some pretty extensive ear surgeries which resulted in some hearing loss. After finishing that Intro to Audiology course, I was hooked and never looked back!
Outside of work, I spend my time with my husband and our three sons! On the weekends, you can usually find our family doing some sort of outside activity like biking, kayaking, or behind a camera capturing the scenery in a moment of time! Photography is a little side passion of mine.
Charlene Lemons, Au.D.
Doctor of Audiology
I’m Dr. Charlene Lemons and everyone calls me Dr. Charlie. I completed my Audiology Doctoral degree from the UW-Consortium, a combined program between UW-Stevens Point and UW-Madison, in May of 2020. During the last year of my graduate program, I completed a yearlong internship here at Medical Hearing Associates. I enjoy helping patients with tinnitus management, current hearing aid technology and most importantly hearing conservation. One thing that makes me proud of what I do as an audiologist is seeing the faces of my patients light up when they can hear something for the first time in years. It warms my heart to know I have brought a tiny piece of their life back. On a personal note, my husband and I are now proud parents of twin daughters and we enjoy being outdoors and spending time as a family.
Patient Care Coordinator
My name is Donna Reseburg. I’ve been with Medical Hearing Associates 10+ years and have loved every minute of it. I am one of the first people you see when you come to our office. I pride myself with being a people person. There are times I may talk too much if I’ve been consuming Caffeinated coffee. So please beware. I enjoy assisting our patients with minor Hearing Aid repair issues. It gives me great pleasure to see their smile when they can hear again. I try to go the extra mile when I can. I believe my time with Medical Hearing has blessed me with many new friends and has given me a feeling of accomplishment. I am blessed to be married to a very understanding husband who has graced me with 2 lovely children that I am very proud off. We enjoy traveling in his new pride and joy, a 2014 C7 Corvette which brings us together with great friends and welcoming new ones as well.
Patient Care Coordinator
I’m Kris Hanson and I am one of the friendly faces you will see when you visit our practice. I have been with Medical Hearing Associates for many years and the people here are my second family. Insurance issues are one of my specialties. I enjoy making sure our patients get the most out of their insurance benefits and receive prompt payments. I am married and have three grown daughters and have been blessed with 5 (more to come) beautiful grandchildren. They all tease me because I am a stickler for ear protection and clean ears. My personal opinion is that hearing is one of the most important of the 5 senses. It should not be taken for granted. This also comes from someone who’s spouse refuses to get his hearing checked and has the TV volume too high.
