Quote from Dr. Cuddeback: “I feel just as excited as the patient when they are able to hear sounds that they have not heard in a long time. It is highly important to me that a patient is able to regain their ability to confidently communicate with others and interact in different listening settings successfully.”
What are you known for?
“I love learning about my patients and what is important to them. I look at each patient as an individual and try to find an effective plan to overcome their communication challenges so they can have better communication with their family and friends. What’s important to my patients becomes important for me.”
“I must admit that I am just as excited as the patient when they are able to hear sounds they haven’t heard in a long time. The field of Audiology is such a rewarding field to be associated with.”
What is your professional passion?
“I strive to make my patients’ communication needs a priority. Unfortunately, when a person has hearing loss it can often times lead to isolation. It is very important for me to help a patient regain their ability to communicate and interact confidently in many different listening environments. I also feel it is very important to give patients realistic expectations about their hearing health care goals.”
What would be impossible for you to give up?
“My family, exercising and chocolate.”
How do you want to be remembered?
“I would like to be remembered as a kind and caring individual that has empathy for others. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know my patients. There is so much you can learn from your patients if you will just take time to really listen to what they are saying.”
