Expert Staff Members
At our practice we are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care available for people with hearing loss. Once we evaluate your hearing with state of the art equipment and techniques we can recommend the best treatment option for your particular needs.
Choosing the right hearing care professional is the most important decision you will make in your journey towards better hearing.
This is because hearing instruments cannot be prescribed like eye glasses and the proper selection, fitting, and instructional counseling is critical to your success.
At our practice you can rest assured that all of your questions will be answered and that if you need hearing aids you will be completely involved in the process of selecting the products that fit your needs and lifestyle.

We pride ourselves on staying on the cutting edge of hearing healthcare and great patient communication. Each of our staff members is motivated to achieve the best results for our patients in a calming and comfortable setting.

Dr. Greb graduated from Hofstra University in New York in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Speech Pathology. She then moved to St. Louis Missouri and attended Central Institute for the Deaf, a division of Washington University where she received her Master of Science Degree in Audiology in 1991. She completed her fellowship in an ENT (Ear-Nose-Throat) office where she focused on diagnostic testing, balance evaluations, auditory brainstem evaluations and hearing aid services. Following her fellowship, she became the Director of Audiology for another Otolaryngologist (ENT) where she worked for several years. During that time, she had an opportunity to work as a mentor and clinical supervisor for local Audiology students.
In 1997, she relocated back to her home on Long Island, New York where she worked as Director of the Audiology Department for a large ENT office. She began to do seminars and local community outreach, and even created her own Aural Rehabilitation program – a class designed to help hearing aid wearers and their families learn how to get the most out of their hearing aids.

Dr. Greb obtained her clinical doctorate, the Au.D., from AT. Still University in Mesa AZ in 2003. Then, given her passion for education, she became an adjunct professor for St. Joseph’s College and Adelphi University in New York where she taught audiology classes for graduate and post graduate students. This was one of her greatest pleasures and she taught until moving to Pennsylvania in 2011. At that time, she was invited to take a position in Wilmington Delaware as the Director of Audiology for the largest ENT practice in the area where she stayed for almost eight years.
Most recently, Dr. Greb, her husband Steve and their 16 year old Shi Tsu Bella moved to South Carolina and became the new owners of Oconee Audiology. Dr. Greb has always wanted to own her own practice. She has worked as an Audiologist for over 28 years in medical offices and hearing aid clinics. She has now realized her dream of practice ownership which allows her to provide exceptional care and compassion and take customer service to a whole new level. She and Steve have wanted to move south for a long time to enjoy the warmer weather and get away from the snow in the North East. They love their new home and are enjoying creating a new life in South Carolina.

“Barbara Greb is an outstanding audiologist. She helped me and many immensely with their hearing issues. Barbara had great respect (she earned it) from the physicians with whom she worked. One otolaryngologist told me, “Barbara is the best.”
“Dr. Greb is a pleasure to work with, she won’t pressure you to purchase something you don’t need. She wants you to be happy and satisfied with your purchase. Although Dr. Greb is very relatable, she’s also very professional.”
“I cannot adequately express my praise for Dr Greb and her services. My entire experience from hearing evaluation through purchase of my hearing aids was relaxed and FUN! Dr Greb helped me select the perfect hearing aids to meet my needs, and life has been so much richer now that I can hear everything that is going on around me.
