Colman’s Hearing Solutions was originally established in 1951 by Harry Bair. In 1978 Harry Bair retired and the practice was turned over to Philip Kribbs. Upon Mr. Kribbs retiring in 2005 the practice was entrusted to Marc Colman and Cecile Colman. Marc and Cecile are a mother & son team, who have been in joint practice since then.
Marc Colman is licensed as a Hearing Instrument Specialist in Florida, and dispensing since 1985. He received his National Board Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences in 1989. He received his certificate of completion as an Audioprosthologist from the American Conference of Audioprosthology in 1991. Marc is also a member of the International Hearing Society since 1985 and a member of the Florida Society of Hearing Health Care Professionals since 1986.
Marc’s previous association with Beltone Electronics for over 20 years has provided him with a very broad background in the hearing industry. From a personal perspective his mother has been hearing impaired since childhood and this has provided him with a unique perspective in working with the hearing impaired.
Cecile Colman has been working with the hearing impaired, and dispensing hearing instruments since 1978 in Manchester, New Hampshire. Cecile transferred to Florida in 1982 where she received her license as a Hearing Instrument Specialist. She established her practice in Homestead, Florida. She went into joint practice with her son Marc Colman in 2005. Cecile received her National Board Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences in 1989. She received her certification as an Audioprosthologist from the University of Texas in 1991. She has been a member of the American Conference of Audioprosthologist since 1991. Cecile has been a member of the International Hearing Society since 1984 and a member of the Florida Society of Hearing Health Care Professionals since 1983.
Cecile has been hearing impaired since early childhood, and has been wearing hearing instruments since age 4. After wearing hearing instruments for over 25 years Cecile was one of the rare individuals lucky enough to have medical science catch up with her. She was able to have surgery to correct her hearing problem allowing her to have her hearing restored. Unfortunately though, nothing last forever. Cecile has been successfully wearing hearing instruments for many years now. This has given her unique insight not only from a professional standpoint, but from a personal perspective in allowing her to relate to her hearing-impaired patients.
