Practice Philosophy:

I believe that a person’s ability to hear has a major affects on their life. Hearing is essential for speech and language development as well as has an affect on social, educational and professional activity. As an Audiologist, my job is not only to identify children and adults with hearing loss, but to improve their communication. I am here not only to treat the patient, but to counsel their family and friends. I believe it is important to treat the whole patient. This includes diagnostic testing and assessment, understanding what the patient wants to accomplish form the visit, amplification, and aural rehabilitation. It also involves knowing/understanding developmental milestones for the pediatric population to the social issues involved with poor communication.
