As to why she became an audiologist, Dr Naizam explains, “My exposure to the world of hearing impairment started in early childhood when I witnessed its wide range of effects firsthand. My mother had hearing loss, and it began to compromise her relationships with others. Constantly misunderstanding people caused her to be ashamed and led her to avoid conversation altogether. Hearing aids were not readily available in Russia at the time. When we came to America, the first thing we did was fit her with hearing aids. I was inspired by the overwhelmingly positive effects the devices had on my mother’s life and relationships, and I longed to improve others’ lives through better hearing.
Hearing loss is a challenging condition—it can have an impact on all areas of life, including personal relationships and career success. It is very emotional for not only the patient, but also for their family and friends. I love helping my patients restore their ability to connect with the people who are important in their lives.”
