Kris Rookey is a 2006 graduate of G. Ray Bodley High School in Fulton, NY and in 2012 earned a degree in Business Administration.
Kris began his hearing healthcare journey as a Hearing Instrument Specialist apprentice in 2012 and earned his New York State Hearing Instrument Specialist license in 2015.
In 2016 he began working as a Hearing Instrument Specialist at McLear’s Hearing Aid Sales & Service in Ogdensburg, NY and purchased the well established practice in January of 2020 when founder Mel McLear decided to retire.
Right about that time, an opportunity came up to move McLear's to the brand new Community Health Center at 102 Ford St. in Ogdensburg.
In 2019, Kris brought compassionate and affordable hearing healthcare to Oswego, NY and opened a second office under his corporation Upstate Hearing, Inc.
In February 2021, the Oswego practice moved to a larger, nicer space as Port City Hearing to better align with the rich history of the beautiful port city of Oswego, NY.
Kris is in pursuit of becoming a Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist and looks forward to seeing current and new patients in both offices.
The entire staff is truly grateful to you for putting your trust in McLear's.
