Best part of my work or a patient visit: Helping people who have felt isolated because of their hearing loss reconnect with friends and family through improved hearing.
Why I became a physician/provider: The ability to communicate with others allows us to stay connected to people and is crucial for maintaining quality of life. How wonderful to have the opportunity to play a role in improving someone's quality of life!
Practice philosophy: The path to better hearing is attainable but often involves a group effort and always takes time. My role is to help select appropriate amplification for the individual, provide clear expectations, ask the right questions, listen to feedback and help set realistic expectations. Family members can play a valuable role by practicing good communication strategies and providing assistance if needed. When patients feel motivated and ready to commit to consistently using their devices, there is a greater chance of long-term success.
