Dr. Rellinger is knowledgeable of all facets of the hearing aid business. First and foremost, she is an audiologist; she knows how our auditory senses work. Second, she is a marketer of hearing aids. She knows the products that she sells and seeks to fit you with the best manufacturer that can improve your hearing, that can accommodate your insurance carrier, and sell you a product that you can afford. Finally, she is just a pleasant person who want to use her gifts to help other people. Not only will she serve as your audiologist, she will also serve as your advocate.
This was my second hearing evaluation. The 1st involved a large scale commercial company that provided reputable discounted hearing aids using technicians. While I heard better, I couldn’t comprehend words that well. The audiologist’s evaluation included background noise and a cognitive evaluation (which the 1st evaluation did not). As a retired engineer, I found the responses technically correct and insightful. While I haven’t received my new units yet, I saw the comparison of my old hearing aids to my evaluation. I’m looking forward to working with the Hearing Center, in the future I won’t “low ball” hearing.
Dr. Erin Rellinger provided an excellent, in-depth hearing test and consultation regarding my wife's hearing aids. This included Dr. Rellinger finding and removing some microphone obstructions in the hearing aids. We were very pleased with Dr. Rellinger's thorough approach.

I was told by my family doctor that the audiologist selection is way more important than the hearing aid selection. I am so glad that I found Dr. Erin Rellinger and her staff. They have been great to work with. Dr. Rellinger has made a huge difference with getting my hearing aids adjusted to my liking!
Dr. Sharp and staff are excellent to work with at the hearing center. I have been receiving treatment here about two years now. They really take the time to understand your concerns and provide the care to help you achieve better hearing. My quality of life has improved because of my ability to hear more clearly. Thanks for all you do.
The very best in my experience for treatment with hearing and advice on hearing aids. Clear explanations from Erin Rellinger about problems and reasonable solutions. Thereafter follow-ups are carefully pursued.
Lacey Sharp is an excellent audiologist!!! She is friendly, kind and caring. She asks and answers any and all questions and gives me great tips for my earring aids. The entire office is a pleasant experience and have made getting hearing aids a positive experience for me. I look forward to seeing and hearing them in the future. Thanks.
Dr. Rellinger is amazing. She is very knowledgeable and thorough! I never feel rushed or as if she doesn't have the time to spend with me. She makes sure all my questions are answered and that my devices work properly. Additionally, she is ALWAYS smiling and personable. I am so glad I found her.
My wife and I brought my 97 year old mom in for a hearing test and to check out options for replacing her current hearing device. We were very impressed with Dr. Lacey Sharp. She answered all of our questions and we will be back next week for the fitting.
My experience with Dr. Sharp and the entire office was excellent. Convenience in scheduling, thorough testing and examination, and hearing aid fitting and orientation was handled in a highly professional, informative and comfortable manner. I recommend Dr. Sharp and her team without qualification.
I'm a retired physician and have been seeing Eye Consultants of Atlanta for eye care for years. They are top notch, so it was a great pleasure to discover Dr. Erin Rellinger and her associates in the Hearing Center, part of the Eye Consultants practice. Dr. Rellinger is incredibly professional and caring. She is VERY responsive when you have questions or special needs. As a healthcare professional myself, I know well the spectrum of providers. Dr. Rellinger and the staff at Eye Consultants in the Cumberland Blvd office are fabulous. Highly recommended.
Erin is extremely competent and capable, and I would recommend her without hesitation. I didn’t realize how important selecting an Audiologist is until I researched issues relating to hearing aids on the internet. Many audiologists don’t perform what is known as “Real Ear Measurement,” as it takes quite a bit more time and effort than simply using the hearing aid manufacturer’s recommendations for setting hearing aids based on your hearing loss profile. As you can learn by researching this issue on the internet, it is impossible to get a good fit without using this method. Erin uses this method for every patient and spends as much time as needed to educate her patients on the use of your hearing aids. My hearing has been greatly improved with the hearing aids from Erin.
I cannot say enough good things about Hearing Center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta!!! I have been a patient of Dr Erin Rellinger's for more than 6 years now. She is wonderful - very caring and extremely intelligent. And she is very proactive with patients, anticipating their needs (certainly MINE). She definitely knows audiology and the particulars of all the brands she carries. I just received a new pair of Widex Moment aids. I love them! She spent quite a bit of time programming them and making sure they were comfortable. At no point was I rushed. She also made sure I was able to use all the cool capabilities available with this model. Please go see Dr Rellinger if you are struggling with your hearing!
Felt very much taken care of. Took the time to help with my hearing aids and help me to order new ones, that I very much need. Lacey is very kind and knowledgeable, and I look forward to working with you to help me have the best hearing I can have! Thank you!!!
Erin is very knowledgeable about the newest technology in hearing aids. Her hearing evaluations are very thorough. I have confidence in her. She is very compassionate and explains what she is doing and why it is done.
I went to several audiologists before going to Hearing consultants at the eye center. My experience with the other places were not up to my expectations either due to a subpar clinical practice or lack of variety of brands offered.
I wanted to get a hearing aid that was similar to an electronic device rather than a stereotypical hearing aid.
Initially I spoke with Dr. Erin over the phone and explained to her my situation. She was very transparent about the services offered at her practice, possible recommendations and estimate pricing.
I thought about it for some time before making an appointment because I didn’t want to have another frustrating experience. I got an appointment with her associate, Dr. Sharp.
On my initial visit, she listened very carefully about all my past experiences, brands that I tried, my audiological wishes and priorities. She did a thorough clinical examination, repeated the hearing test and made custom molds.
Over the next many months, I tried several brands. With each fitting, I found her always pleasant, professional and accommodating; with real ear measurements performed and adjustments made based on my complains. She also showed me, gave me tips, made me demonstrate, how to easily insert, remove and do routine care of my hearing aids.
Although Dr. Sharp is young, she is extremely attentive to her patient needs, straightforward with her advice based on the patient ear anatomy and degree of hearing loss.
My advice to anyone needing a hearing aid for the first time is educate yourself, learn about the different hearing aids, options that you’ll need or like, learn about what to look for in an ideal audiologist practice and the importance of real ear measurement.
Dr. Sharp has excellent clinical skills, the practice has a great variety of brands and very reasonable trial period.
I would recommend her to anyone who may need an audiologist. Dr. Sharp is a gem!
A grateful retired physician.
Dr Lacy Sharp has been very diligent and thorough in both of my visits for
my yearly hearing exam and very patient with me. Also going above and beyond in helping me stay on top of potential issues. I will always go to her as long as she is a available.
Dr. Erin Rellinger and the staff at The Hearing Center (Cumberland location) A wonderful.audiologist, Dr.Rellinger is caring, she is very responsive to my questions and takes time to be sure all elements of my hearing aids are satisfactory. I can't say enough about Dr. R. and her team. Highly recommend. 5 Start for Sure. Callahan Pope McDonough, LCSW. Atlanta.
Had an extremely thorough and informative visit at the hearing center today. Start to finish; all perfect. Easy parking at a beautiful, clean and modern facility. Staff are professional and courteous. I wouldn't think of going elsewhere!
Dr. Sharpe is the best! She is caring, very professional, courteous, and quite thorough in her diagnosis. The staff is also friendly and very accommodating. My hearing aids have begun to really help not only my hearing , but also reduce the ringing in my ears. As a new patient, I am so glad that I found them. I highly recommend The Hearing Center at the Eye Consultants of Atlanta in Cumberland.
I came to The Hearing Center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta, because they were associated withI Eye Consultants in the same building of which I was already a patient. I found their location to be convenient (free parking) and the staff warm and friendly. Dr. Sharpe was thorough and professional. I received a most thorough hearing evaluation and ordered the Oticon model that Dr. Sharpe felt would be best. The aids came in and were fitted professionally even to the point of changing the size of the wire to accommodate the shape of my ear. After several trips for fine tuning the aids to my needs, I felt that I was not hearing as well as I should. Of course these were my first aids, so I couldn't be sure. Dr. Sharpe broght in 2 factory representatives of Oticon to see if they could further adjust the aids to my satisfaction. After a two week trial with these new adjustments, Dr.Sharpe and I agreed that I could try a different brand to compare. There was no problem switching from one brand to another during the initial trial period. I chose the Phonak brand. Dr. Sharpe and the staff could not have been nicer and went beyond the call of duty to make sure that I was satisfied. The new Phonaks are great. Cool features, wearing them is like wearing apple AirPods b/c I can receive calls and talk through these aids. I can also listen to movies or podcasts from my phone through these aids. I am well pleased with their expertise and care. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
I’ve been going to the Hearing Center since 2017 and have been very satisfied with the care and service provided. Dr. Rellinger, my Audiologist, is very pleasant and professional. She utilizes modern technology to assess and track hearing and make programming and equipment adjustments. She is very cost conscious and provides great follow up with providers to ensure her that patients receive the most out of their purchase.
My wife Julia and I have both used Dr. Sharp to test our hearing and teach us how to use our hearing aids. She is knowledgeable, professional, and totally up-to-date on the latest technology. She is practical and meticulous in guiding you through all the aspects of learning to deal with the many complex issues involved in dealing with the latest and best hearing aids. Most importantly though, she is kind, caring, patient and personable. We have referred several friends to her and they all feel the same.
Dr. Sharp is fantastic. Very patient and thorough. It's a stressful experience getting a hearing aid for the first time. She deals with her patients with compassion and professionalism. Highly recommended.
Dr Rellinger is fantastic. You will know everything you need to know about your hearing condition during your visit and your options for treatment explained without any pressure to go one direction or another.
Going to The Hearing Center was the best decision I made in shopping for Hearing Aids. Great service by friendly professionals. Dr. Erin Rellinger and staff are excellent. The hearing test and evaluation was very through and the recommendation for Hearing Aids was perfect. My hearing now is so much better. Highly recommended.
Very state of the art, high tech approach to their testing and fitting. My five year old hearing aids, purchased through, Eye Consultants of Atlanta, work just as well now, after yesterday's visit, as when new.
The subject of hearing (and hearing aids!) is complex and very sensitive. I have been to numerous Audiologists in the Atlanta area in the past 10 years—and I was never truly comfortable with the prospect of hearing aids until my appointments with Dr. Sharp in the past couple of months. Her thoroughness, attention-to-detail, professionalism, patience, and obvious care made this an unexpectedly positive experience as I transition into something I never thought I would. I highly recommend this doctor and staff (Aubree) for such a significant part of your life.
When I first got my new hearing aids, there was more feedback (squealing) than I had previously had with my old hearing aids. I was worried that Dr. Sharp would not be able to find the right type and size tips to stop the squealing. I soon found that my worries were unjustified - she found the PERFECT fit! She also spent lots of time with me showing me exactly how to insert them so as to eliminate the squealing. I can now truly say that these are the best hearing aids I have ever had, and that Dr. Sharp is the best audiologist I have ever had!
Yes, it's unusual. The Hearing Center is at Eye Consultants of Atlanta. Doesn't seem to make sense does it? I'm so glad that I found them. I shopped around for an audiologist that didn't seem like a used car or mattress salesman. There are so many out there. You will find this out for yourself but I can save you some time.
These are incredibly knowledgeable doctors (both of them) who care about your hearing health. If this is your first time with hearing aids, you have to understand it is a partnership between you and your doctor. It is not a one-and-done visit or one-size fits all. There are many different kinds of hearing aids and there will be numerous adjustments to optimize your hearing. You have to be dedicated to the process.
The sooner you start using them, the better. Your brain has to adjust to a new way of processing sound.
I can't imagine what I would do without them.
Hearing aids can be eye-poppingly expensive and it's a crime that many insurance plans offer no coverage. That is not the fault of the audiologist. But what price do you place on your health? My personal life would suffer immensely without them. My career would be affected as well.
If you want something cheaper, I recommend Costco. They are a fine, entry level product in a big box environment. I started there myself.
I am now a patient and fan of the hearing center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta for the service, knowledge and dedication to my hearing health that I've received over the years.
I am so pleased that I found Dr. Sharp to take care of my hearing needs. She is knowledgeable, patient, and truly cares about any problem that I might have.
After a very thorough hearing test and receiving my hearing aids, she told me to call her if I had any concerns. I went back a couple of times as I was adjusting to them, and she always had time for me. The office staff is friendly and wonderful on the phone. If you are looking for an audiologist, you will not find a better one than Dr. Sharp. She is a joy to work with.
I went for my first appointment today at Hearing Center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta and had Dr. Lacey Sharp examine my ears and test my hearing. She was extremely thorough and spent so much time with me. What a beautiful state of the art facility and everything was so high tech! The whole team was so welcoming and friendly and they made me feel like I was the only patient there. Dr. Sharps assistant even cleaned my hearing aids and put all new wires on them without me even asking them to do that. Their service was A++. Dr. Sharp reprogrammed my hearing aids and I was able to hear so much better! And 6 hours later even better. I would highly recommend their office without reservation. Thanks for helping me today.
I have been seeing Dr. Rellinger for 3+ years for audiological assessments and hearing aid updates. In our limited, at times, English language we cannot choose a single word to describe down home customer service, superior professionalism, high end quality products, and outstanding front office support. Those of you searching for somewhere to go to address hearing issues, need look no further.
Dr. Sharp was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She answered all of my questions, trained me in the use of my hearing aid and provided technical support and follow-up. The facility is fresh, beautiful and modern. There are many hearing aids in the marketplace, and Dr. Sharp selected the brand and type that was perfect for my lifestyle. She recommended a brand that was discreet, rechargeable on a charger and bluetooth compatible with my iphone. A great investment and experience. I love being able to hear well again. Thank you, Dr. Sharp!
I am wearing a hearing aid for the first time and have been really nervous about the process and what to expect. I happened to find the Hearing Center from an internet search and spoke to Aubree when I called. She was very helpful, and compassionate when my appointment was scheduled.
Aubree has been professional throughout this process.
Dr. Sharp consulted with me and recommended a hearing aid for my right ear.I was really impressed with her professionalism yet comfortable with
her personality. She was patient and answered my questions which reassured that I would adjust to the hearing aid in time. It took a few adjustments but I am hearing better and loving it!
Kayla is an asset to the office and I have enjoyed my brief interactions with her.She has been totally professional and her personality is great for the office.
My experience with Dr. Sharpe at the Hearing Center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta changed my outlook about hearing aids. Before I saw Dr. Sharp, I was very reluctant to try hearing aids. Dr. Sharp is terrific and very patient. She explained every step of the testing, fitting, and which hearing aids would be best for me. She answered my questions fully. Her explanations at every step made sure I wasn't surprised or startled at any time. She fully explained my hearing deficit. My experience with Dr. Sharp and the Hearing Center have made my life easier and improved the quality of life especially in this era of people having to wear masks. The hearing aids make it possible to hear the birds outside the house when I get them in in the morning. I actually look forward to inserting the hearing aids when I get up. In addition to Dr. Sharp, the rest of the staff is also excellent and very helpful. I appreciate all they do to help me hear!
Where do I start?! Dr. Lacey Sharp is one of the most caring, patient and thorough audiologists my husband and I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She will sit down with you and really listen to what you want and need. She went the extra miles with us to make sure our insurance would cover certain expenses before we even started a process. Eye Consultants of Atlanta Hearing Clinic have been amazing as well. Aubrey and the front staff are very friendly and helpful. I feel so blessed to have found Dr. Sharp and the staff at Eye Consultants. If you are looking for a great audiologist, Dr. Sharp is the one you want!!
Just received my new hearing aids. Dr. Hampton and Dr. Sharp ( the entire office) are absolutely the most thorough people. After picking up my hearing aids, I was totally briefed and it has been a great experience.
Thank you Erin, Aubrey and the other Associates at Hearing Center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta. I was hesitant to get hearing aids in spite of knowing I needed them. I have been asked by my wife to please revisit hearing aids. The 20+ year old “in the canal” gizmos were unpleasant to wear and too much to endure as well as not integrating well with today’s tech they lived in a vinyl case in a drawer. Every few years I would take them out, add batteries, and try. 1-2 hours was the longest I could tolerate the earplug.
Making an appointment while I was getting my eyeglasses was pleasantly easy. Showing up, getting a hearing test, listening to the options and seeing the advances was just as easy. Dr Erin Rellinger made it easy. She knew how to explain and inform me of what was going on in a way that worked.
So, yeah. FIVE STARS is a given, but appreciating a personal interaction to easing in to acceptance and embracing that I will be using these little devices in my ear every day, and most waking hours goes beyond five stars.
Thank you Erin, Aubrey and the other Associates at Hearing Center at Eye Consultants of Atlanta.
I had issues with by wiring with my widex hearing aid. Showed up without an appointment. They took care of me immediately. My wiring was under warranty n they were out of stock but had it sent overnight. Next day they fixed my hearing aid. Thanks!! Friendly Doctor n staff. Thank u
My care provider Erin was on time, bright and cheery. She gave my audio response a thorough check-out and repaired what was not up to par. She worked with the manufacturer to sort out a somewhat gray warranty situation and was persistent when they initially could not find the paper trail. It does not get any better than this.
The hearing center was able to get me in and address all my concerns regarding my hearing the same day. They ran multiple test and made me feel confident in my results. The staff was very friendly and I I would highly recommend them. The new center is very nice as well.
