Physician’s Choice Hearing Solutions: Our Story

Jim Lucas, our owner, acquired Physician’s Choice Hearing Solutions in the fall of 2020. Before that Physician’s Choice Hearing Solutions was two separate practices. Jim has been working in the audiology field all his life. Originally from Michigan, Jim’s grandfather opened a family hearing practice in 1959. Jim was a part of this family business until this past year when he decided to relocate to Florida with his family and acquired Physician’s Choice Hearing Solutions.

Our staff has decades of combined experience helping patients hear better. We are passionate about better hearing and communication, and we are proud to help the wonderful people of the Bay area improve their quality of life through better hearing.

Michelle Klinzing


Michelle is a member of the Florida Society of Hearing Healthcare Professionals and the International Society of Hearing. She furthered her studies and received a national board certification in hearing instrument sciences. Michelle has also completed training in cerumen management. She has been dispensing hearing aids since 2006. Michelle was a combat medic in the United States Army for seven years and received the rank of sergeant. She is also a graduate of St. Petersburg Junior College with an AA degree in pre-nursing.

Michelle chose the hearing profession because her mother lost her hearing when Michelle was in first grade. It wasn’t until Michelle’s senior year of high school that her mother got a hearing aid for the first time, and she cried at being able to hear things she hadn’t heard in years. Living with the impact of that first hearing aid made an impression on Michelle and inspired her to give that same experience to others, which she does every day now. In her free time, Michelle enjoys reading, going to the beach, cooking out, and spending time with her motley crew of pets and her family.
