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.

“Friendly staffs. Mr. Farsi examined my ear and took time to explain in great detail about what’s happening and what I can do to prevent it. Highly recommend this place. ”

“I was referred to see Dr. Maw for hearing and balance. Dr. Maw was very attentive and professional. I sleep much better after she switched my medications. My brain fog was minimized after taking supplements she recommended to me. My health-related quality of life improved significantly after my very first visit. I can’t thank her enough for her help. Merry Christmas! Dr Maw. ”

“I met with Dr Behrouz Farsi. He was excellent in explaining exactly what was causing my hearing problem and how to correct it. He also gave excellent tips to prevent a recurrence of the problem. I would definitely recommend Dr Farsi to anyone.”

“My visit to see Ear Associates’ Dr. Inserra was a complete success! Everything about the visit, from the check-in to making the follow-up appointment, was prompt and very professional, and with no hesitation from any of the staff to answer any of my many questions. Part of my exam involved a hearing test which was exceptional and as thorough and complete as I used to receive during my Navy days. The examination from Dr. Inserra was very thorough and she, too, answered all of my questions and provided written literature so I would be able to reflect on the salient points of my treatment. It was exactly the type of care and discussion/insight I was hoping for. I truly hope I don’t have to see Dr. Inserra again, but it’s very reassuring to know I can count on Dr. Inserra and Ear Associates should I have to return. ”
