Hearing Loss Is Common
An estimated one in three adults over 65 has some degree of hearing loss. If you have difficulty hearing in noisy places, strain to hear conversations, or misunderstand what people say, you would greatly benefit by calling us today to arrange a hearing evaluation with our professional audiologist.
What Makes Us Different?
Dr. Weissman is a graduate of the consistently top-ranked Vanderbilt Medical School Doctor of Audiology program. His training included clinical experience at Nashville’s Veteran’s Health Administration Medical Center and at a private audiology practice working with both children and adults. Before opening his practice in San Rafael, Dr. Weissman held the chief audiologist position at a four-physician ear, nose, and throat practice in Oakland. He also managed a retail-based hearing aid center in Marin County.
Prior to entering the audiology field, Dr. Weissman earned degrees in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering. His rigorous engineering training prepared him to work as a software developer, product designer and manager for several major medical device companies in Silicon Valley. Dr. Weissman’s extensive knowledge of acoustics, electronics, and medical instrumentation offers his patients a valuable edge, as he is better prepared to understand the technical features of digital hearing aids and to select and adjust devices to best suit his patients’ needs.
After having worked in a large academic medical center, a physicians’ group in Oakland, and a retail hearing aid center in Marin, I knew I could best serve individuals with hearing loss through a smaller independent practice. My vision is to get to know our patients and their individual needs – so as to best help them overcome their hearing difficulties…
… My office in San Rafael is built around blending hearing science, innovative technology, and personal service. When I worked as a retail audiologist I was permitted to dispense only one brand. I like to feel free to offer patients the devices they will get the most use out of now and that will be flexible enough to serve them well for years to come – L. Weissman.
