Audiologist

Dr. Ashley Al-Izzi has practiced audiology since 2003, both in a private practice setting and as an account manager for a hearing aid manufacturer.

Audiologist

Dr. Amy Wolf has been practicing Audiology since 1994, primarily within large, multi-specialty medical clinics.

I am excited to enter private practice focusing on my favorite part of my career.”
