ROCHESTER, N.Y., FEBRUARY 17– Mallory Larsen, clinical audiologist, has joined Rochester Hearing and Speech Center’s Greece location. Mallory has been practicing at Rochester Hearing and Speech Center on Elmwood Avenue since August 2014.
Taking an educational approach to serving her clients, Mallory ensures clients understand their test results and feel comfortable with the action or hearing aid she recommends. “It helps patients feel confident using their hearing aids,” says Larsen, while maintaining realistic goals and expectations for communication. She also teaches clients communication strategies and draws attention to assistive technology that can enhance their communication.
Often encountering patients who aren’t aware of the full capability of their hearing aids, she enjoys exploring hearing aid software to better equip the sophisticated instruments she works with. “I have come across many patients whose hearing aids were not always programmed to take advantage of what they can do,” says Mallory.
A graduate from Utah State University with a Clinical Doctorate of Audiology, Mallory has practiced in Utah and Florida, and finally returned to her local roots in East Rochester. She enjoys working at Rochester Hearing and Speech Center where she is encouraged to educate her patients to be their own advocate and understand their hearing loss and hearing aids.
To schedule an appointment with Mallory or learn more about Rochester Hearing and Speech Center’s services, call the Greece location at 585.723.2140.
