Dr Nicole C Robbins
A native of Roane County, Tennessee, the care Dr Robbins has for others has been evident since she was a small child. She initially pursued a BA in Speech-Language Pathology before realizing that Audiology was her true love. By the age of 20, she had received her BA in speech-language pathology, much to the relief of her parents, and then her MA degree in Audiology at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. She went on to receive her Doctor of Audiology degree from AT Still University in Mesa, AZ. She has over 24 years of experience helping people of all ages, from newborns only hours old to patients who have been with us over a century! Dr Robbins spent the first half of her career specializing in pediatrics, most notably working at St Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. It was extremely rewarding for her to work with children, families, and professionals from all over the world. In 2009, she rediscovered the joy of helping adults with hearing difficulties. After having been in Memphis for 19 years, Dr Robbins returned to the region where she was raised, to purchase the Fairfield Glade Hearing Center in 2016. Little known trivia on Dr Robbins: she has been tapped as an expert on NPR, has been on Antiques Roadshow, and is published in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology and the Journal of Clinical Oncology. She is enjoying being so close to her parents, who still live in Kingston, and has been overwhelmed with support and kindness from the Fairfield Glade Community. A breast cancer survivor, Dr Robbins loves SEC football (even when things do not go in her beloved Vols' favor), spending time with family and friends, and extremely amateur photography. She is happy to be back "home."
