We’re very proud to accept the 2019 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics at the Better Business Bureau’s annual meeting on May 1. The area’s Better Business Bureau serves southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia.

We were just one of six companies that took home the prestigious annual award this year. The six winners were chosen from among more than a dozen businesses who were invited, based on an anonymous nomination, to complete the Torch Award application process.

At the luncheon, which drew more than 500 attendees, Dr. Johnson accepted the award on behalf of Johnson Audiology, that was co-founded with Derek Johnson in 2009.

Johnson Audiology was born in Chattanooga with its first location on Gunbarrel Road, but now have four additional locations: Hixson, Franklin, and Murfreesboro, TN and in Cartersville, GA. In addition to Dr. Johnson and Derek Johnson, we also have eight amazing audiologists and 18 support staff, including patient care coordinators, audiology assistants and insurance and billing specialists.

As we prepare to celebrate our 10th anniversary later this year, we’re so proud to scoop this prestigious award as it provides an important touchstone for us. It offers us that rare opportunity to stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and reflect on where we are and how we got here.

Early in Megan’s university career, she recognized the wide gulf that exists in the field of hearing health in terms of how and by whom care can be delivered to patients and how hearing aid technology is dispensed and marketed to the public and quickly realized that being ethical and trustworthy and professional really is a choice and that’s the kind of doctor of audiology she wanted to be. Accepting the Torch Award is an affirmation that we are doing things the right way
