Our Staff

Scott Esbit, HIS

Hearing Instrument Specialist

My name is Scott Esbit and I am originally from Southern California. Along with my wife, Judy of 24 years and our two teenage boys, I moved to North Tucson in 2006 to manage SoundPoint Hearing Centers in the Greater Tucson area.

Licensed in California & Arizona, the past 25 years I have personally assisted over 15,000 hearing impaired individuals as a Hearing Instrument Specialist. Although each patient has individual needs, some are more challenging then others. Through persistence and expertise, I have successfully resolved many problematic cases. My experience also includes manufacturing ear molds as well as repairing hearing aids. I have had board member positions with Hearing Health Care Providers of California and Arizona. As a Certified Loop Installer, I have looped venues including residential homes as well as churches, community centers and office buildings.

My past formal education included 3 years in college studying electronics & refrigeration controls. However, I was given the opportunity to take over my family business in 1980 and for over 10 years, I furnished & renovated hotels nationwide. Just after entering the Hearing Health Care industry in 1991, I assisted my wife in opening up her health food store in 1998 that she owned until we moved to Arizona in 2006. During this time, I also was the owner of Better Hearing Aid & Vision Center in Pasadena, California.

Personally, playing the drums and several other percussion instruments has been one of my life long passions. Recently, I have been able to once again pursue my interest in participating as a drummer in a local band. On a daily basis, I also take care of my garden which has been another passion since childhood. As a family, we enjoy the outdoors and spend a great deal of time skiing in the White Mountains of Arizona.

My professional as well as my personal life has always been one of service. It has given me the opportunity to enhance the quality of life for the hearing impaired and is most definitely rewarding. Please allow me the opportunity to change the quality of your life. Come visit me at SoundPoint Hearing Centers in Oro Valley or on West Grant Road in West Tucson.

have tried at least 4 different aids during the past few years and the ones Scott Esbit at Oro Valley provided for me are by far the best performing ones I have had. Scott has been very patient and professional during the adjustment period. No hearing aids will ever restore...

I have been wearing hearing aids for over 50 years and I have been associated with many hearing aid people in the business. In my opinion there are few that deliver the service and help that Scott does. He is always very concerned and so helpful. He wants the best...

Monica is extremely helpful. There was an issue with my insurance that took almost a year to correct but they let me have my hearing aids the entire time while they were working it out!
