About Kara J. McMyne
Philosophy of care
Each patient's hearing loss is unique, despite similar degrees of loss or configurations. Because it impacts each person in a different way, how you cope with it and move forward may vary. I understand that both counseling and fitting hearing aids need to be patient-specific, not a one-size-fits-all approach.
Why I entered medicine
I entered audiology to provide patients better access to hearing-related services and devices. In undergrad the program was geared toward speech pathology, but I really appreciated the immediate reaction when a set of demo aids were placed into a patient's ears. You could see their reaction to little environmental sounds or a family member speaking at a normal volume.
When not working I enjoy traveling, finding new books to read and spending time with my cat, Luna.
