Karah Gottschalk, Au.D./CC-A, has joined Oswego Health as an audiologist.
She is providing hearing and balance testing for those of all ages using the newest technology.
Dr. Gottschalk earned her doctor of audiology degree at the University of Louisville and completed her residency at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center, in Cleveland, Ohio.
She also holds a Certificate of Clinical Competency (CCC-A) from the American Speech and Hearing Association. Throughout her schooling, she took part in extensive training in all aspects of audiology, allowing her to offer comprehensive hearing and balance services.
Oswego Health has purchased the latest hearing and balance equipment for Dr. Gottschalk so community members can receive exceptional audiology care close to their homes.
For those with hearing issues, Dr. Gottschalk is conducting specialized hearing tests using an audiometer in a newly purchased sound booth.
The Audiostar audiometer offers patient comfort and consistent results. When testing an infant’s hearing, she will utilize advanced Auditory Brainstem Response equipment.
For balance testing, state-of-the-art Videonystagmography equipment, which records a patient’s eye movements during a series of actions, can assist in determining a patient diagnosis.
“I am excited to be offering a variety of excellent hearing and balance services in the community,” Dr. Gottschalk said. “This is a great opportunity that allows me to care for all ages from the very young to the elderly in a hospital environment, which I greatly enjoy.”
The new audiologist offers her hearing and balance services in suite 210 of the Oswego Health Services Center, which is adjacent to Oswego Hospital. The phone number is 349-5828.
