Dr. Jan Liles







Dr. Jan Liles is a doctor of audiology and co-owner at Alabama Hearing Associates. A lifelong native of the Yellowhammer State, Dr. Liles earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Montevallo and her master’s degree from the University of Alabama.

From 1991 to 2001, she worked with two ENT medical practices and initiated one of the first newborn hearing screening programs in the state. In 2002, she was awarded a doctorate in audiology from the University of Florida. Dr. Liles and her long time best friend Dr. Sheehy founded Alabama Hearing Associates in January 2002.

Dr. Liles considers herself a problem solver, and she spends her days helping people to hear soft voices or voices from a distance; understand conversations in restaurants or family gatherings; hear phone calls; understand speakers at meetings or church; and hear grandchildren and co-workers. Hearing loss affects all aspects of life, and Dr. Liles loves to make life better for her patients.

Her favorite thing about being part of the Alabama Hearing Associates team is the support they give to each other, especially our Patient Care Coordinators. They “take care of a thousand behind-the-scenes details each day so that we can help our patients to hear better.”

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Liles lives in Huntsville with her husband Perry. They have two sons, Jay and Jonathan. Hobbies include reading and scrapbooking. Dr. Liles is involved in local and international missions through her church and carries a special place in her heart for the villagers of Chuluc, Guatemala.
