Fauquier Hearing Services was founded in 1999 by Dr. Diane Markva, an audiologist whose passion for helping people with hearing and speech started at a very young age.
Dr. Markva took her passion and studied at James Madison University where she received her undergraduate and master’s degrees. From there, she worked toward her certifications in the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Richmond, VA, and subsequently as a staff audiologist at an ear, nose, and throat medical group in Norfolk, VA.
She later decided it was time to open her own practice so she could have the freedom to provide hearing health care services exactly how she wanted — with a focus solely on the patient’s needs. It was not long after the decision to go out on her own that her family started to grow!
Mixing motherhood and her audiology practice did not hinder her efforts one bit. In fact, she and the practice excelled. In 2005 she received her Doctorate of Audiology from the University of Florida, all while continuing being a mom and owner/provider of the practice.
Her efforts did not go unnoticed. In 2012, Fauquier Hearing Services was certified by Audigy Group, an independent practice management organization. This certification recognizes practices that maintain and adhere to an elite level of hearing care standards. Membership in the organization gives our patients access to a national network of elite audiology practices.
By becoming an AudigyCertified™ member, Fauquier Hearing Services has been able to increase our effectiveness for our patients — the most important factor of our mission.
Our hearing health providers have the expertise, understanding, desire, and knowledge, which results in better living through better hearing for our patients. We are dedicated to providing only the finest quality and most advanced hearing and related products in an honest, fair, and patient-focused fashion.
