Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

As a board-certified otologist/neurotologist I am specially trained to care for adults and children with ear and hearing disorders and inner ear causes of dizziness. Some of my most rewarding work is in restoring hearing. As director of Dukes cochlear implant program I use cochlear implants and other surgical procedures to restore hearing in people with tumors and ear infections. My interest in hearing started when I worked as an audiologist before medical school. After joining Duke I co-founded the Duke Hearing Center where we conduct research to one day eliminate deafness and hearing impairments. I live in Durham with my husband and three teenage children who keep me very busy when I am not at the hospital. I am fortunate to work with a team of physicians nurses audiologists and other providers who provide our patients with personalized care. We look forward to meeting you.Read more

Had a great visit. Her office staff was wonderful - short waiting times; professional. She came in on time and talked with me; gave excellent information; ruled out major causes and made a good diagnosis about my ear issues. She was pleasant and positive as well as being very professional. I would recommend her to anyone!
