About Us


Salyer Hearing Center was founded in 1985 when Benjamin Douglas, MD and Gregory W. Salyer, Au.D. relocated to the mountains of Western North Carolina. After developing a friendship while serving together in the Army, Dr. Salyer and Dr. Douglas decided to open their practices together. Now, more than 30 years later, Mountain Ear, Nose & Throat Associates and Salyer Hearing Center have served the needs of over 50,000 patients in more than 7 counties and multiple states.

Following Dr. Salyer’s retirement in 2012, Salyer Hearing Center remained the regional gold standard in high quality hearing aid fittings, sales and repair service. Dr. Selena Rogers continues to provide the same leadership, clinical expertise and high-quality patient care as she has for more than 15 years. We were pleased to welcome Dr. John Smith to the audiology team in 2012, with his strong clinical experience and compassionate attention to patient care. In 2014, we were able to expand our locations with the opening of our Murphy office. The physicians of Mountain Ear, Nose & Throat joined the Salyer Hearing Staff in our Murphy location in the Spring of 2017. This allowed us to provide a full range of ENT and hearing services to the Murphy and North Georgia region. With the addition of Hearing Instrument Specialist, Emily Peacock to the Murphy staff, Salyer Hearing Center continues to grow to meet the needs of our region.
