Dr. Cole’s dissertation focused on the impact of cognition (working memory) and hearing loss on speech perception in the geriatric population, for which she was awarded the 2014 Student Mentored American Auditory Society Award.

Dr. Cole is dedicated to providing her patients excellent hearing and balance healthcare and maintains cutting-edge knowledge of auditory and vestibular methodology. Her areas of expertise include audiological rehabilitation (i.e. hearing aids/amplification systems), cognition (working memory) and speech perception, and vestibular/balance testing and rehabilitation. It is important to her that each patient is educated on his or her hearing and balance status and applies this information to determine the best course of individualized treatment.
