Mark D. Johnson

Board-Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist

Certified Audioprosthologist Owner of Preferred Hearing Centers

Growing up in Cincinnati Ohio, I was very close to my Grandpa Kenning. Grandpa was kept out of WWII due to a severe hearing loss in his left ear. He was never treated for his hearing loss, which made verbal interaction very difficult, and this was quite frustrating for grandpa and for the entire family. Seeing my grandpa struggle with communicating, I became aware at an early age of the negative impact hearing loss has on a person and their family.  

Immediately after high school I enlisted and served in the U.S. Air Force as a supply sergeant. During my tour of service, I spent time in Denver Co., Okinawa Japan, the Philippines, and the Black Hills Mountain region of South Dakota. After my Air Force service, I moved to Florida and attended the University of South Florida in Tampa. I am also a graduate of Rhema Bible Training College in Tulsa, OK.

I began my career in the hearing healthcare field in 1993 with a major hearing aid/care provider. I opened my own practice in the fall of 1994 in Orlando, Fl.  In 1995 I became Board Certified, and through my continued training received my A.C.A. credentialing as a Certified Audioprsothologist in 1997.

Quality of Life is about connecting with the people and the things we love. As a Hearing Healthcare Professional, I find great joy in helping to restore a person’s connection to their world. Due to my extensive knowledge and understanding of the difficulties faced by the hearing impaired, I have had the opportunities throughout my career, to lend my expertise to others in the field. I have conducted many hearing educational workshops, both for professionals and for the general public. I have also personally trained many individuals in the Hearing Healthcare field. I love passing on my passion for helping people to hear better to others.

In 2011 I was greatly honored to be invited to Osaka, Japan as the keynote speaker for the International Hearing Society Annual Convention. It was a privilege to train a large group of practitioners who had gathered from all over Japan.

In 2004 I married my wife (and business partner), Brenda. We enjoy everything ocean-related and always look forward to traveling and experiencing new people, places, and food. I have visited 35 foreign countries, and we are always planning and looking forward to our next trip. Brenda and I are active members of Embassy International Church in Winter Park.   

I have a wonderful son Michael, and we have two precious grandchildren, Andrew and Sophia, who we really enjoy spending time with and being a regular part of their lives, school activities, and sports involvements.

I cannot say enough excellent things about Jaycee and Barbara at Preferred Hearing. The staff is so kind and Jaycee took a lot of time with me to be sure I understood every test and reviewing all my options for hearing devices. I’ve only had my hearing aids one week, but it’s been a life changing week! Best decision I ever made coming to Preferred Hearing. (I am 80 years young again) - Mary Ann A. mary ann a review

Great team at the Winter Springs office. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly, outgoing and that's just the beginning. Barbara at the front desk is a sweetheart. Jaysee is THE professional you want to adjust your hearing aids. He can translate your hearing issues into adjustments that work. Highly recommend this group Hearing Professionals.

I was impressed with the great detail of the hearing examination. I was a little skeptical about hearing aids but the staff is very professional and very experienced. I purchased a great set of hearing aids that have changed my life so I can hear so much better! They did not try to upsell me or sell me a pair that was extra expensive. They only showed me what I needed for my hearing aids. I highly recommend Preferred Hearing Centers!

I had been with another hearing center and was not getting help with my profound hearing loss. In a last try I went to Preferred Hearing. The hearing testtng was more extensive than Florida Hospital audiologist! My problem was documented and corrected with streaming bluetooth hearing aids. It has made my life so much more fun again. I can watch TV with other humans without the volume blowing them out of the room. I can go to dinner with friends and hear them talking. Highly recommend to anyone with hearing loss!
