About Us

ENT Medicine and Surgery Group & Aquidneck Hearing Center has made itself a part of the East Bay Community for more than 30 years. Dr. James Dobbin opened this practice in Bristol and Middletown, RI in 1987. Dr. Steven Freedman joined him as a partner in 1992.

Ear, Nose & Throat is a medical practice that provides care for ear, nose and throat diseases, including hearing loss. We take special care in diagnosing ear problems and hearing loss, and determine which patients can benefit from hearing instruments.

When caring for our patients, we take each person's unique needs into account. This allows us to provide an individualized treatment plan that ensures success. 

The audiology staff at Aquidneck Hearing Center can provide a full range of hearing rehabilitation services, including hearing aids. We offer our patients honesty and transparency, so when they’re making decisions concerning hearing aids, they are well informed.

Our primary focus is not hearing aids, but taking care of the patient first and foremost.
