Doctor of Audiology

Dr. Amy Sarow is a Michigan-based audiologist, blogger, and Forbes Health Advisory Board member on a mission to improve hearing healthcare. She obtained her Doctor of Audiology at the University of Iowa and spent her 4th-year residency at the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences. Her work has been featured on KevinMD, Health Hearing, Authority Magazine, and the nationally-syndicated Price of Business show. The pandemic recently highlighted the importance of hearing healthcare on overall health and well-being. Hearing shapes how we perceive the world, and mask-wearing presented a challenge for many with hearing loss.

Her course on tinnitus management supports tinnitus sufferers to improve quality of life through stress reduction, mindfulness, and lifestyle modification.
