Dr. Richard Harrell '87 owns The Hearing Clinic, Inc., which operates hearing and balance clinics throughout southwestern Virginia.
"I opened a private practice with a good friend of mine in 1985. In 1989, I took over the practice full-time," says Harrell. As a student at Radford, Harrell received his undergraduate degree in communication sciences and disorders and his master’s degree in audiology. "As a student, I worked in the Speech and Hearing Clinic. As a senior, I was able to participate in providing speech, language and hearing assessments for clients," says Harrell. Working hands on with patients, professors and classmates encouraged Harrell to pursue the path of teaching.
