Sound Relief Tinnitus and Hearing Center – Scottsdale
If you live in or around Scottsdale or Phoenix with tinnitus, decreased sound tolerance (hyperacusis, misophonia, or phonophobia), or diminished hearing, you are not alone. These issues put a strain on your quality of life and leave you feeling agitated. At Sound Relief Tinnitus and Hearing Center Scottsdale, we will provide you with the help you need and the relief you deserve.
Helping people with tinnitus has always been our primary focus. When we opened Sound Relief in 2011, our mission was – and continues to be – simple. Eradicate the misconception that nothing can be done to treat tinnitus and help as many people as possible. Almost 10 years later and nearly 10,000 patients helped, Sound Relief has become a beacon of hope for people across the United States who cannot find relief elsewhere. Our first clinic in Arizona is in this Scottsdale location, and the reception was incredible. Our vast collective experience from primarily working with tinnitus sufferers combined with Dr. Julie’s leadership and our expertise utilizing Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) allows us effectively treat even the most complex cases.
We also specialize in hyperacusis – also known as sound sensitivity or decreased sound tolerance. Treatment for hyperacusis and tinnitus are very similar, and our experience lends itself to very successful outcomes with our patients.
Of course, as audiologists, we also help many people with diminished hearing as their primary concern. Since all of our providers are Doctors of Audiology, patients can count on exceptional, personalized care, without exception.
Whatever your issues with sound, Sound Relief Scottsdale is here to help!

Franchesca Zavala - Patient Care Coordinator
Originally from the sunny beaches of Orange County, California, Franchesca traded the coastline for the desert landscape of Scottsdale, Arizona in 2013. As a Patient Care Coordinator at Sound Relief Tinnitus & Hearing Center in Scottsdale, “I’m passionate about facilitating the journey to better hearing and tinnitus relief for our patients. In my role, I’ve found my calling as a Patient Care Coordinator. It’s incredibly rewarding to witness the positive impact our team makes on people’s lives.” Outside the office, Francesca indulges her creative side through baking and crafting delicious treats that bring joy to family and friends. When the sun sets, Franchesca finds a thrill in the chilling narratives of scary movies and the intriguing mysteries of true crime podcasts. These hobbies not only provide an escape but also fuel her fascination with storytelling in various forms.
If you experience a constant buzzing or ringing sound in your ears, it’s likely that you’re living with tinnitus. This phenomenon is characterized by the perception of sound when no external source for this sound is actually present. The severity of tinnitus varies from person to person, and we offer several treatment options to help alleviate your tinnitus symptoms. Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) treats both the symptoms and the source of tinnitus by utilizing sound therapy. Counseling, relaxation methods, hearing instruments, or a combination all of these are the tools we have found most effective for many tinnitus sufferers.
Hyperacusis can be described as an uncomfortable, heightened sensitivity to sound or decreased sound tolerance. If you live with this issue, everyday sounds such as doing the dishes, watching TV, or even a simple conversation, can be incredibly annoying or even cause pain. The severity of hyperacusis varies from patient to patient and can lead to migraines, ear pain, and daily discomfort. Take the first step towards relief and schedule an appointment at our Scottsdale hyperacusis center. We will evaluate your situation, answer your questions, and provide our treatment recommendation..
Have you noticed a change in the clarity of your hearing? If so, it is probably time to schedule a hearing test. This is a straightforward evaluation designed to provide your audiologist with crucial information about your hearing health. Hearing tests include a comprehensive review of your medical history, a thorough ear examination, and various tests to determine which frequencies you may struggle hearing or understanding.
Our audiologists have a plethora of hearing aid styles, technology levels, and manufacturers to choose from, and they will work with you to determine which device is perfect for you. Selecting the right hearing aid can be life-changing, but only if you get the right one. Another major component is being partnered with an audiologist you can trust to ensure your fit and programming is excellent. You will find that level of commitment and expertise here at Sound Relief.
