Kristi Mendoza, Au.D
Doctor of Audiology
Kristi Mendoza has been an Audiologist and Hearing Aid Dispenser in California since 1991. Dr. Mendoza attended UCSB for her B.A., CSULB for her M.A. and A.T. Still University for her Au.D. Today, Dr. Mendoza owns Optimum Audiology in Victorville, California. She also offers in-home hearing care throughout Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange counties Working with patients from pediatric to adults, Dr. Mendoza’s biggest joy is helping her patients to hear and enjoy a better and healthier hearing lifestyle.
We offer comprehensive hearing testing to those who suspect they have a hearing loss, as well as OSHA required screening for people who work in loud environments. Testing is painless and non-invasive, and will provide you with a clear understanding of your current hearing abilities.
Modern hearing aids offer an impressive array of features, providing a comfortable and seamless listening experience through bluetooth and mobile connectivity. Depending on your unique hearing loss, Dr. Mendoza will make a recommendation for a hearing aid model best suited for your needs.
Hearing loss can have a significant impact on your overall health and well-being. Recent studies show a correlation between untreated hearing loss and diseases affecting cognitive function such as Alzheimers and Demetia. Hearing impairment is also linked to balance problems as well as a feeling of fullness in the ear.
Persistent ringing in the ears when there is no external sound, also known as tinnitus, is a frustrating condition that can dramatically decrease a person’s quality of life. At Optimum Audiology, we offer effective tinnitus management solutions to provide relief for patients who hear persistent ringing, clicking and swooshing sounds.
