Dr. Rosann Faull’s great-grandmother had significant hearing loss and wore hearing aids. This was during the 60’s and 70’s and her experience with old technology was the catalyst for Dr. Faull to study Audiology in college. She wanted to help people hear better and maintain a high quality of life.
Dr. Faull started her career by working with Ear, Nose and Throat physicians and was Director of Audiology at University of Missouri Medical School Hospital. She specialized in diagnostic evaluation of hearing loss, balance evaluation and hearing aid evaluations for children and adults, and provided audiology training to medical residents.
In 1983 she began her private practice in Melbourne, Florida. While there, in addition to her regular hearing-loss patients, she established newborn and infant hearing screening programs at two hospitals.
In 2009 she and her husband Art Faull moved to the First Coast and started a private practice in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville.
“For me, the most rewarding part of audiology is helping people get the most from their hearing with advanced hearing technologies. I provide diagnostic hearing evaluations, hearing aid evaluations, prescribing and fitting hearing aids, and tinnitus evaluations and tinnitus relief. I work with many manufactures to assure the best solution for my patient’s hearing health.”
Dr. Leslie Newmeyer recenly joined the practice.Both Dr. Faull and Dr. Newmeyer are Doctors of Audiology with 35 + years of experience.
Dr. Faull and Dr. Newmeyer strive to help patients improve their hearing so they remain engaged in life. According to Dr. Faull, “Recent research has proven that improving your hearing through advanced hearing instruments preserves and decreases cognitive decline. Unfortunately, the most common hearing loss in adults – sensori-neural or nerve hearing loss cannot be corrected with surgery or medicine, only appropriately prescribed and fitted hearing instruments can help”.
When Dr. Faull is not at her Mandarin office helping patients, she enjoys traveling. She and her husband are avid bicyclists and their vacations often are weeks-long excursions on bicycle trails nationwide. In recent years they rode from Washington, D.C. to Pittsburgh PA and the Virginia Creeper Trail. They have also traveled to Machu Picchu, Peru and spent 3 years living on their sailboat from 1999 -2001.
