I enjoy both the technical and personal aspects of working in audiology. Improved hearing helps our patients achieve better communication with family and friends and a renewed zest for social activities. Our greatest satisfaction comes when patients tell us we helped them improve their quality of life…

Dr. Weissman has been dispensing hearing aids for over 12 years and has been a Marin audiologist for 10 years. He is a graduate of the consistently top-ranked Vanderbilt Medical School Doctor of Audiology program.

Before setting up his own 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 as a Marin audiologist.
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. His extensive knowledge of acoustics, electronics, and medical instrumentation offers his patients a valuable edge. 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.

Why choose a Doctor of Audiology?
Good hearing is a key component of physical health and emotional well-being. When choosing your hearing health provider, apply the same care as you do when selecting your primary care physician, orthopedist, or other medical specialist.
All Providers are Not Equal
All hearing aid providers are not equal. Professional audiologists like Dr. Weissman have earned the most advanced credential available to a hearing health practitioner. A doctoral-degreed audiologist has typically eight years of postsecondary education. When choosing a health partner to evaluate and improve your hearing for the long term, a Doctor of Audiology is typically your best choice.
Advanced Credentials Matter
We are trained to evaluate your hearing using advanced technologies, listen to your concerns attentively, and zero in precisely on solutions that best address your hearing loss, budget, and lifestyle. We strive to make your time in our office comfortable and informative. The education and counseling we offer will help you to participate in decisions about your care and confidently implement recommended solutions.
Certain types of hearing loss are the result of medical conditions that may be treatable by a physician with medication or surgery of the middle ear. In extremely rare cases, hearing loss may be a warning sign of a serious medical condition. Audiologists at Hear So Good have specialized skills in differential diagnosis and will refer you to your physician should a further evaluation be warranted.
Many providers limit their focus to only one or two hearing aid manufacturers. It makes their job easier but can limit the options available to you. At Hear So Good, we maintain our technical expertise across all six major manufacturers, and several smaller ones, enabling us to best serve you. Working with such a large number of manufacturers ensures that you have access to the newest technologies and the most appropriate styles and features.
