Audiologist inspired by father’s workplace hearing loss

Audiology Associates Hearing Care Center is opening at a new location Sept. 7 in the Atrium Building at 23838 Valencia Blvd. The center features new state-of-the-art, computer-based testing and diagnostic equipment.

Dr. Patrice Rifkind, an audiology expert, was inspired to her profession by her father, who suffered severe hearing loss as a result of years working with noisy printing presses. She recalls how lost he seemed when he could not follow family conversations.

“I still remember how angry my mother would get at him. She thought if he ‘listened harder’ he would hear what she had to say,” said Rifkind. “That’s just not true.”

Joining Rifkind in her new practice are Nina Ball, M.S., and Kimberly Latkovich.  Audiology Associates invite people to stop by the new Hearing Care Center, call the center (661) 284-1900 or visit the center online at www.AudiologyAssociates.Net.
