Elizabeth C. Roberts, Au.D.Elizabeth C Roberts, Audiologist

Director of Audiology Services

My Professional Philosophy
Every patient’s hearing loss and hearing needs are different. Patients also differ in their personal preferences regarding hearing aid technology. It is my job to teach you everything you need to know about your hearing loss and also whether you may receive benefit from hearing aids. Technology alone doesn’t help people hear better—it is how well I work with you and how well I apply that latest technology. I will answer all your questions and make sure you understand your hearing devices to maximize your listening situations. I’ll make sure your hearing aids are comfortable, work properly, and provide the most benefit. Encouragement, guidance, patience and proper instruction are essential components through the duration of your hearing aid learning process.

“I take care of my patients with the personal touch that I would expect if I were the patient.”
