She has extensive experience in diagnostic audiology and hearing aid technology and fittings. Dr. Belgard has lectured on Ototoxicity and Ototoxicity Monitoring as well as on hearing loss and hearing aids on both the local and state levels.
Dr. Belgard has a special interest in working with hearing impaired patients and with hearing aids. She also has a strong interest in working with physicians and patients on the topic of Ototoxicity and the importance of Ototoxicity Monitoring. Patient education and counseling are a large part of her focus.
