Patient Stories

This is Sarah's Story...

Sarah is the captain of the USA National Deaf Women’s Volleyball team, an actress, motivational speaker and a popular YouTuber that signs songs which have gotten recognition from Lin Manuel Miralda from Hamilton, and The Greatest Showman.

Sarah lost her hearing when she was three years old when was misdiagnosed and operated on by a surgeon that severed a facial nerve, paralyzing the right side of her face and resulting in her instantly losing her hearing.

After seeing many audiologists throughout her life, she was introduced to Dr. Gregory Frazer at Pacific Hearing Inc. when she was 18 by her grandma who had been a long-standing patient.

This is Dr. Rachelefsky's Story...

Dr. Rachelefsky was the director of the Executive Care Center for Asthma, Allergy, and Respiratory Diseases, professor of allergy and immunology, and associate director of the Allergy-Immunology Training Program at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

He was president of the Respiratory and Allergic Disease Foundation and has been a principal investigator of multiple clinical trials. He is the author or co-author of more than 160 peer-reviewed publications dealing with allergy, respiratory disorders, and immunology and has personally treated between 80,000 and 100,000 patients in his 40 years in medicine.

This is Dr. Beroukhim's Story...

Dr. Beroukhim is an internal medicine physician. She immigrated to America due to an infection, which resulted in her losing much of her hearing. She first visited Dr. Greg, as he was one of the only audiologists on Los Angeles’s list that she could use her UCLA insurance with.

Although she previously had another audiologist, Dr. Beroukhim shared how Dr. Greg’s strong scientific background makes him stand out from the others. “In my experience, most of the audiologists I have worked with are kind people, understanding, and while they’re good at what they do, Dr. Greg has a strong scientific background.”

This is David's Story...

David is a highly renowned lawyer that practiced law in California for approximately 50 years, starting his career as a prosecuting attorney with one of his most landmark cases being People v. Cohen, during the Vietnam War. Upon leaving the government, he went on to run a successful litigation practice for around 20 years.

Following the adoption of his second child, David realized how much he enjoyed the life-changing and rewarding process and switched careers to adoption and surrogacy, helping approximately 3,000 families to adopt a baby across the United States. His first experience of a hearing challenge was in 2000, when he first realized that he had to adjust his television set to a much higher volume than the rest of his family. 

This is Cheyenne's Story...

Cheyenne is a 21-year-old student that has been seeing Dr. Greg since seventh grade. Her first encounter with Dr. Greg was different from what she had normally experienced with other audiologists, having had hearing challenges since fourth grade, and numerous hearing assessments.

She shared how she “learned the system”, commenting on how memorization of speech tests became her way of outsmarting the system. Dr. Greg realized what she was doing, challenged her, and helped to ensure the tests were accurate, unlike previous audiologists. When asked why Cheyenne continues to see Dr. Greg after ten years of being a patient, she said he is “like family”.
