Audiologist

I am thrilled to be the newest member of the Audiology team at EARS, Inc and would love to share a bit about my background. I received my Audiology Doctorate in 2015 from the University of Washington, after completing a clinical fellowship at Harvard's Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. My expertise includes performing diagnostic measures of the auditory system, as well as selecting, fitting and adjusting state-of-the-art hearing aids, cochlear implants, bone conduction devices and other assistive hearing technology. Prior to joining EARS, I worked for five years in the Cochlear Implant Program at the Stanford Ear Institute, where I collaborated with an interdisciplinary team to provide cutting edge hearing health care. I couldn’t be happier to now find my place in an individualized, specialty care center at EARS. We are immensely fortunate to live in an era with a vast array of innovative and cosmetically appealing hearing devices. I have seen time and again how the right combination of technology and personalized education can change lives. It is a joy to learn the unique needs of each client to create tailored treatment plans that allow people to overcome the challenges of hearing loss and re-engage in their lives. I very much look forward to helping the community at EARS discover these solutions. When not at work, I enjoy baking, yoga and spending time outdoors with my husband, toddler daughter and rambunctious dog.

“I have been more than happy with the Doctors at EARS Inc. I have seen mainly Drs. Patil and Inserra. I find them to be very thorough and invested in their patients. I had started my treatment elsewhere. The treatment I have received at EAR Inc. is far superior to my previous treatment.”

“I am a patient and fan of Dr. Jennifer Maw and Dr. Sarika Patil. Dr. Maw was my cochlear implant surgeon in 2017 when I received my first Cochlear implant (an Australian sourced model). Dr. Maw is a professional, dedicated and highly skilled surgeon for this type of delicate surgery. My procedure was painless during and after. While there are warnings of possible nerve damage and significant loss of taste, I did not experience any ill effects after surgery. I could not be happier with my cochlear implant. Dr. Patil was first my audiologist for adjustment of a new Starkey hearing aid on my right side prior to my cochlear implant on my left side. I have a profound hearing loss (I hear nothing without a hearing aid) on both sides, such that making adjustments for me to hear well and comfortably takes longer than for most others. There are very few audiologists who are skilled or intuitive enough to provide any kind of assistance for my degree of hearing loss. Dr. Patil was incredibly patient thru the entire process for both my hearing aid as well as my implant. The Maw/Patil team gave me the best hearing I could hope for. They are in high demand due to their skill and success which sometimes makes it difficult to get scheduled, but they work very hard and do their very best to help everyone in a timely manner. At one point during my process to prep and tune my equipment I had a bout of vertigo. Dr. Maw enlisted the help of one of her other assistants who provided the necessary, very interesting! and effective treatment procedure and I thankfully regained my balance and confidence in everyday motions. My sincere thanks to Dr. Maw, Dr. Patil and their highly trained, dedicated team for their help in giving me my best hearing possible. ”
