Meet Talia Lifson, an audiologist
DEDICATED TO THE WELL-BEING OF PATIENTS
Growing up I always knew I wanted to help people. I am fascinated by the auditory and vestibular systems, and have always been interested in technology, so when it was time to choose a career path, Audiology was a natural choice. I am passionate about providing a wholesome service to all my patients. My main goal is for all my patients to feel heard, understood, and to leave my office feeling that their needs have been met and their quality of life improved.
I was introduced to the world of Audiology at a young age, as my father is also in the field. So as a child I loved getting involved and helping out where I could. This really sparked my passion for helping others.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2017. I moved to Zithulele Hospital in the Transkei in 2018, to complete my Community Service. By the end of 2018, I had formed a greater passion for preventing hearing loss. realised that I love working alongside the doctors, to help manage ear infections and other ear-related ailments. I started a neonatal hearing screening program, I monitored the hearing of patients with potential ototoxicity, and I provided audiological services to many areas surrounding the hospital. It was incredibly challenging, but meaningful and rewarding work in communities with many different challenges. This helped push me to extend and adapt my skills, making me into the audiologist I am today. Since then, I have been working in private practice and absolutely love what I do.
We want to hear from you!
