ABOUT CR HEARING

Dr. Nancy Sickelka began Cedar Rapids Hearing Center in 1999. Dr. Melissa Heinricy joined shortly afterward by serendipitously inquiring at Cedar Rapids Hearing Center just as the practice was ready to expand. Together, we have become the familiar faces that our patients trust and look forward to seeing for all of their hearing care needs.
At Cedar Rapids Hearing Center we’re known for our warm, welcoming environment and knowledgeable, professional care. We understand how difficult hearing problems can be and we’ve built a practice on accurately assessing the most effective solutions for our patients. Come see why we’ve acquired such a loyal patient base, and experience the difference of expert hearing care.

NANCY SICKELKA

DOCTOR OF AUDIOLOGY

I grew up in the Quad City area, surrounded by a large family. I moved to Cedar Rapids after finishing at Iowa State and have been blessed with three amazing children – Christian, Katie, and Jackson. We are joined by our spoiled and attentive miniature dachshund Zeus. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, whether we are playing board games, attending sporting events, or watching a good comedy. I also enjoy bike riding, jogging, and reading. In my spare time, I volunteer at the Cedar Valley Humane Society.​

 

I feel like I’m able to make a difference in my patients’ lives. The ability to hear affects every aspect of life, and helping people improve the quality of their daily life is very rewarding.

MELISSA HEINRICY

DOCTOR OF AUDIOLOGY

I grew up in Bellevue, Iowa, and have lived in Eastern Iowa my entire life. I met my husband, Brian, in high school, and we have four beautiful children-Jenna, Mallory, Max, and Ella. When Brian and I aren’t busy coaching our children, I enjoy reading, working out, and cheering on the Cubs and Hawkeyes.

One of the things I love most about my work is being able to help people improve the quality of their lives! I love getting to know our patients and developing relationships with them.
