Meet the Staff:
Susan Frugone Miziker is a California licensed clinical audiologist with a Master’s Degree and 40 years of experience in all types of hearing problems. During this extensive time in her private practice, Susan has passionately provided very specialized hearing health care for people of all ages.
Located on Wilshire Boulevard near Beverly Hills she is often called “the Audiologist to the Stars” because of her many celebrity patients and leading business persons who require very effective but discreet hearing devices. This same care is given to every patient. Diagnosing and treating hearing loss, requires the most advanced technology. But every person is different, so equally important are the skills and expertise to make these devices work best for each patient. “I am passionate about helping all people with hearing difficulties to stay connected to others, especially to their loved ones”.
Patricia A Keane, M.A.
I have been helping the hearing impaired in the Los Angeles South Bay area for over thirty years. I have gained a high level of experience assisting the hearing impaired in a wide range of medical environments helping patients with various levels of hearing disability. It has been a fascinating and rewarding profession that has given me the ability to help people enjoy their lives and family. It is an extremely rewarding experience to help people hear for the first time and to have the ability to improve their hearing to a greater degree as better levels of technology appear on the marketplace. It is my primary objective to do the best for my patients for their hearing health and communication ability.
About me: Ms. Keane is a long time California resident. She attended California State University Fullerton for her undergraduate degree in Communication Disorders and California State University Los Angeles for her Master’s degree in Audiology. She is currently a fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the American Academy of Audiology. In her time she enjoys biking, hiking, and water sports.
Why I am became an Audiologist: Audiology is the perfect balance of science and helping people. I was always fascinated with the human anatomy and how our bodies worked which led me into the sciences. I also love helping people and doing what I can to better the quality of their life. My love in Audiology has always been hearing aids. The best feeling in the world is when I put hearing aids on a first time user and they hear sounds they forgot even existed! Everyone deserves excellence when it comes to the testing and monitoring of their hearing health and management of hearing aids.
