Our provider, Scarlet M. Aviles, Au.D. was born on Oahu and raised on the Big Island. She has now lived on Oahu for over 30 years. Having previously worked out of a larger ENT office, Dr. Aviles recently opened her own office. It is located in the same office building she’s been working in for 24 years: Queen’s Medical Center, Physician’s Office Building 1 Suite 414.
Dr. Aviles knew from a young age that she wanted to work in the medical field. She also really enjoyed working with people. How to combine these was the question. After taking her first audiology course she became very interested in the audiology field. She quickly understood that working in audiology, she could both have the time to enjoy people and have a meaningful and lasting impact on their quality of life. Dr. Aviles attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa for her BS and MS and went on to pursue her Au.D from the University of Florida, graduating with honors from all schools. She is Board Certified in Audiology by the American Board of Audiology, a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology, a Fellow of the American Doctors of Audiology, a Member of the National Association of Professional Women, a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, and is contracted by the Veteran’s Administration.
Outside of work, Dr. Aviles enjoys spending time with her two grown children, volunteering with her favorite non-profit organizations, traveling, judging gymnastics competition, doing Crossfit and learning new things. In her office, you feel the positive energy conveyed by someone who loves to stay active and enjoy all that life has to offer.
INTRODUCING THE “HEARING IMPAIRED” ALERT PIN
Hearing loss is an invisible disability. You can't see it. There are 360 million persons in the world with disabling hearing loss.
I've created a "Hearing Impaired" alert pin - people can wear this pin to notify others that they struggle with hearing loss.
The goal of wearing this pin would be to encourage more effective communication strategies when talking to a person with hearing loss and also as a visible sign of hearing loss. This is important especially in emergency situations.
