Dr. Soltani has been practicing as an audiologist in the Vancouver Lower Mainland area for close to twenty years. He opened an audiology and hearing aid dispensing clinic in the existing downtown Vancouver location in early 2002 and then another three clinics located in Burnaby, Abbotsford and West Broadway. In 2011, Dr. Soltani rebranded his clinics to Mainland Hearing and shortly afterward, partnered with Marke Hambley, president and founder of Nexgen Hearing, expanding the Mainland Hearing locations to Kitsilano, North Vancouver, Squamish, and West Vancouver. In April 2016, the Mainland Hearing brand was amalgamated with it's sister company NexGen Hearing, which has several locations on Vancouver Island and the Interior of BC.
