Phoenix audiologist, Dr. Stephanie Clark, has been changing lives with hearing and tinnitus treatment since 1990 when she earned her Doctor of Audiology degree from the Arizona School of Health Sciences in Mesa, Arizona.  Dr. Clark spent over a decade with a large insurance company managing their audiology and hearing aid department, as well as another decade plus treating metro-area hearing loss and tinnitus patients.

Dr. Christina Radous has been treating patients in Phoenix, Goodyear, and Glendale, Arizona with hearing and tinnitus conditions since joining an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor in the North Valley back in 2007.  Working closely with physicians in the North Valley, and the Biltmore area, has given Dr. Radous a special appreciation for the medical treatment of hearing loss and tinnitus, rather than a focus on traditional hearing aids.  When she learned more about Hearing and Brain Centers of America’s founder, Dr. Keith Darrow, a Harvard Medical and M.I.T. Trained Neuroscientist, she couldn’t help but join his team to bring the patients of metro Phoenix the best of hearing and tinnitus treatment-focused on preventing decline in our aging population.

Dr. Radous and this Arizona hearing healthcare team just returned from their continuing education trip where they spent two action-packed days learning from Dr. Keith Darrow, Ph.D., CCC-A, CDP on the impact hearing loss and tinnitus have on cognition, memory, and the brain.

Dr. Hannah Rauch, audiologist, and her wonder treatment teammate in Surprise, Arizona, Suzette Bologna (Patient Experience Coordinator) is now accepting patients looking for hearing and life improvement through the medical treatment of hearing loss, tinnitus, and the associated cognitive impact.  After 4 years of working with patients in Surprise, Arizona, Hannah joined Dr. Darrow’s vision to focus on the preventative nature of hearing loss treatment, including the fact that 40% of Dementia cases are considered preventable. 

Hearing loss can affect several parts of the brain, particularly those associated with auditory processing and language. Some of the key regions include:

  1. Auditory cortex: This area is responsible for processing sound information and can be affected when there's a decrease in auditory input.
  2. Auditory pathways: The neural pathways that transmit auditory signals from the ear to the brain can be impacted by hearing loss.
  3. Wernicke's area: This region is crucial for language comprehension, and hearing loss can make it more challenging to understand spoken language.
  4. Hippocampus: This part of the brain is associated with memory and can be influenced by hearing loss, potentially impacting memory function.
  5. Prefrontal cortex: Hearing loss may affect cognitive functions, including attention and executive functions, which are primarily associated with the prefrontal cortex.
  6. Limbic system: Emotional processing and responses can be altered due to hearing loss, as the limbic system plays a role in emotional regulation.

It's important to note that the specific impact on these brain regions can vary depending on the severity and duration of hearing loss and the individual's ability to adapt to the changes. Modern technology, based on hearing aid research is often used to help mitigate the effects of hearing loss on the brain by providing the proper auditory stimulation.

Dr. Jaslean Ahuja-Michals is an audiologist and hearing healthcare specialist in North Scottsdale.  Jalean and Sarah Orozco, Patient Experience Coordinator, have been focused on the medical benefits of treating damage to the auditory system (hearing loss and tinnitus) for a number of years with plenty of patient reviews and testimonials.

Dr. Ahuja-Michals is a holistic healer at heart, and her integration of this passion with the neuroscience of hearing loss provides patients with an experience to remember (thanks in part to the improved memory that comes from treating hearing loss).

When she’s not in-office, you can find Dr. Ahuja-Michals educating and treating the metro community on improvements in their hearing and life throughout the valley, including:  Westminster Village Senior Living, Sagewood Retirement Community, and other public outreach events throughout the City of Phoenix Senior Network.
