Dr. Terry R. DeGroot is a graduate of Wheaton College (Illinois) and the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. His surgical internship was completed at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He completed his residency in otolaryngology at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, NY. He was board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology in 1980 and has practiced in West Michigan since that time.
Dr. DeGroot will be providing medical input and care for current and potential hearing instrument users in the Grand Haven and Zeeland offices. His services will include cerumen management and examination and treatment of ear canal and hearing concerns.
Dr. DeGroot says, “One of the joys of my practice over the years has been to become involved in the lives of patients from newborns to the very elderly, those with minor problems to life threatening issues. Assisting individuals to deal with ear and hearing concerns has been particularly rewarding as this area provides opportunity to dramatically improve the quality of lives of patients, their loved ones and their social circle. What could be more gratifying than aiding individuals in living better and happier lives on an every day basis.”
He resides in Grand Haven, with his wife, Sandi. They enjoy gardening, cooking and motorcycle riding.
