Curtis J. Whitcomb

Doctor of Audiology, AuD, FAAA

A licensed audiologist who has been helping the people of Idaho to hear better since 1984, Dr. Curtis Whitcomb serves as Director of Audiology at Treasure Valley Hearing & Balance. Prior to joining our practice, Dr. Whitcomb earned a Master of Science degree in audiology from Idaho State University and a Doctorate in Audiology from A.T. Still University. Since 1990 Dr. Whitcomb has been a Fellow in the American Academy of Audiology.

Dr. Whitcomb's reasons for pursuing a career in audiology are simple: He is devoted to helping others. "I chose audiology as my life's work," he says, "because I believe that all people who suffer from hearing loss have the right to hear better, regardless of their age." Dr. Whitcomb also believes it is his duty as an audiologist to advocate for those suffering from hearing loss, so that they may live life to their fullest potential.

Dr. Whitcomb has been happily married for 35 years and is the proud father of two beautiful daughters. He cherishes every moment he spends with his family, and he tries to stay active in his church. Dr. Whitcomb is also a member of Bugles Across America, and he is often called upon to honor our fallen veterans by sounding "Taps" at military funerals.

Audiology Tech

When Denice accepted the front desk position with Treasure Valley Hearing & Balance in 2006, she had no idea what she was in for. Years later, after moving from her original position to Operations Manager and Audiologist Technician, she finds herself having the same love for helping people as she did when she first started. Graduating from Nova Southeastern University with her Audiologist Assistant Certificate in 2012, Denice was ready to help people hear better and, in turn, lead better lives. She loves how well the team at TVHB gets along, describing them as her second family.

Outside of the office, she's busy with her six sons and her grandchildren. Her ever-growing family love to camp, fish, hunt, and, of course, spend quality time together. Working in the hearing care industry, she knows just how important it is to connect with those you love.

Lisa Talik

Patient Care Coordinator and Insurance Specialist

Lisa has relatives who have struggled with hearing loss, so when her 26-year tenure with Dr. Wayne Davis ended upon the dentist's retirement, it seemed a natural step to switch to audiology to help others hear better. When she first met the staff, even before getting hired, she could see their passion for what they do. Now that she's part of the team, she loves the energy they all share and how infectious that energy is to the patients.

Lisa is very close to her active family. They enjoy biking, hiking, and fishing, and they are huge Boise State and Seattle Seahawks fans.
