Why I became an audiologist

“I’ve had multiple family members who suffer from hearing loss. I’ve seen first-hand the detrimental effects that this disorder can have on those effected as well as their loved ones.  I wanted to pursue a field of practice where I could have a positive impact in my community while aiding those with hearing loss and hearing disorders to increase their quality of life. I truly enjoy developing strong, trusting relationships with my patients and providing them with the psychological, emotional, and medical support that those with hearing loss need.” ~Dr. Kaplan
