He enjoys his career because he can see the difference that better hearing has on the lives of his patients. He became interested in audiology back in the late 1990’s when he saw his mother struggle with hearing loss. His mother wore old analog hearing aids. Every time he would hug her, her aid would start feeding back and screaming. Thank goodness the aids we use do not do that anymore. His mother is now gone, but he tells his patients that he would love to hear that feedback squeal just one more time. Richard is a father of two children. Son, Christopher who is 27, lives in New York City pursuing a career in computer code writing. His daughter Charlotte who is sixteen attends early college. She is deciding between a career as a lawyer or a veterinarian.
