Mitzie Slayden, Au.D., CCC-A
Dr. Mitzie Slayden has been an audiologist for thirty years. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders from Murray State University in 1980. In 1986, she completed her Masters in Audiology at the University of Memphis. She later returned to Salus University to obtain her Doctorate in Audiology and completed in 2009. During her career, she has had the opportunity to work in private practice settings and with hearing aid manufacturers. As an outside representative with a manufacturer, she worked with audiologists in their offices training them on the latest technology as well as helping ensure successful hearing aid fittings with patients with challenging hearing losses. She applied this knowledge to helping patients when she began her own private practice. Over the years, she has helped thousands of hearing impaired people to hear better. Mitzie believes she is providing her patients with a better quality of life by improving their ability to communicate with their friends and family.
Mitzie grew up in Gallatin and Clarksville and has lived in Mount Juliet since 2006. She shares her home with her "fur baby", Honey, a Malti-poo that she has spoiled. She is an avid reader and enjoys seeing movies, Broadway shows and musicals, and attending live music venues. Traveling to new places whether near or far, flying to a new country for vacation, or a quick road trip on the weekend is her favorite way to spend her free time.
Honey McCloud joined Regional ENT’s Gallatin office in 2012. She is a native to Sumner Country graduating from Beech High School. She has enjoyed working in the audiologic healthcare field for the past 10 years, first starting in the front office of an ENT & Audiology practice and later assisting in patient testing and care. She received her certification as an OTO Tech in 2004 through the American Academy of Otolaryngology and continued her education through Nova Southeastern University in 2006 receiving certification as an Audiologic Assistant in Diagnostic Testing and Amplification.
She has a passion for serving her patients with the utmost care and enjoys working with patients of all ages. In working with patients with hearing loss she has gained a new understanding of one of her favorite quotes: Helen Keller once said, “Blindness cuts us off from things, but deafness cuts us off from people.” She feels hearing loss cuts people off socially, preventing them from living life to its fullest and staying involved with their loved ones. Her goal is to make the transition into treatment as smooth as possible for all involved.
Honey McCloud lives in Hendersonville. Her interests include crafting, especially scrapbooking special moments spent with her husband and her children, and hunting. She enjoys, admiring God's many creations and spending her down time with her family.
Debbie Piotrowski joined Regional ENT’s Lebanon office in 2014. She came to us via Western New York where she worked in a private Audiologist practice for 3 years. She received her certification for Audiologist’s Assistant in Diagnostic Testing through Nova Southeastern University.
She is committed to providing Middle Tennessee residents the best Audiological assistance in testing, maintenance and counseling in order to enhance the quality of life for them, their families and their friends. Her dedication to her patients is something we very much value her for. Debbie goes above and beyond to help her patients gain the knowledge necessary to improve their hearing and their circumstances.
