Meet Dr. Pehringer, Au.D.

hopkins shorewood mn audiologist dr pehringer

Dr. James Pehringer has been a trusted clinical audiologist for over 25 years helping more than 10,000 people find solutions to their hearing needs and supporting them with treatment over the years to achieve better hearing, well-being, and improved cognitive function.

Dr. Pehringer received his doctoral degree from A.T. Still University located in Mesa, AZ. with minor studies in electrical engineering, acoustics, and psychology.

Over his career, he has developed a vast array of experiences in the profession as a research audiologist, in commercial audiology to develop new products and measurement techniques, and as a clinical and private practice audiologist shaping his knowledge and perspectives of the impact of hearing loss and his unique approach to treatment!

He has been instrumental in developing the technology used to evaluate young and at-risk children’s hearing that cannot participate in traditional testing techniques due to their age and cognitive development. His work in this area of Visual Reinforcement Audiometry (VRA) has led to the distribution of the equipment necessary to conduct hearing tests on young children around the world to diagnose and measure their rehabilitation as they matured.

On a personal note, Dr. Pehringer and his wife Andree raised two sons (Adam and Jeremy) and enjoy living on a lake in rural Minneapolis. Water sports, hiking, and playing with their two German Wire Hair pointers dogs are favorite activities of the family.

Dr. Pehringer is actively involved in his community with a passion for helping and improving people’s lifestyles on many levels. He feels that by taking the time to listen to members of the community to discover their concerns and what matters most to them will allow us to work together to improve the conditions and resources available to meet those needs and escalate their quality of life!

"I have been a client of Jim's now for nearly a decade. I have been complete happy with his service. He is friendly, professional, informed, and good at what he does. Consistently he works for the best solution for me. I even took my ninety-four year old mother to him. She too was satisfied."

"Dr James Pehringer is the best audiologist I have met. He has taken care of my mother and her hearing for many years. I love that he has a PhD as it means to me he went beyond the minimum requirements to be the very best, and he is. He has solved one problem after another for my mother - he is sooo kind and spends all the time necessary to "fix the problem". I cannot recommend him highly enough. Even more than his knowledge of audiology, he is a very, very kind man."

- Rayeana Nine nine 5 star review

"My husband has worked with Dr. Pehringer for several years now and we are still highly impressed with his personal service, knowledge and concern for my husband's hearing problems and adjustment to hearing aid use. He is always ready to help with any difficulty encountered. His products are dependable and significantly enhance my husband's ability to function on a daily basis. We have referred friends to Dr. Pehringer and will continue to do so. We recommend Hearing Solutions Group."
