Dr. Deirdre Hamaker – Audiologist Profile

Meet Dr. Hamaker! 

Hi.  My name is Deirdre Hamaker.  I am originally from LI, NY, but I moved to Tampa, FL over 20 years ago.  When I came to Tampa, I had been a pharmaceutical Rep for several years.  I wanted to have my own patients and I found a passion in helping people communicate.  I wanted to help bring people out of the isolation that can be caused through hearing loss.  It brings me such joy when people are able to converse with their friends and family.  I have been blessed with two teenage boys, Gavin and Luke, and my husband, Ryan, who is the love of my life.  We have a Chihuahua, Pixie, who is always misbehaving, but we adore her troublemaking ways.  As a family, we love to surround ourselves in nature, whether it is traveling to the beach or hiking on trails.
