Meet Catherine Fabian, Au.D.

Dr. Catherine Fabian received her doctorate in audiology from Northwestern University in 2008 after studying cognitive science and linguistics at UC San Diego.  Known as “Dr. Cat” to her younger patients, her talents and interests lie in assessing and treating children, performing (Central) Auditory Processing Disorder evaluations, and providing rehabilitation through auditory training and hearing aid fittings.

Neural represesentation of music in the brain was the topic of her doctoral thesis, and Dr. Fabian continues to integrate her love for music professionally by providing hearing healthcare for musicians and music fans.

Dr. Fabian has worked as an educational audiologist in public schools developing (C)APD assessment and therapy programs, in medically diagnostic private practice dispensing hearing aids, and in hospital rehabilitation programs performing (C)APD research, assessement, and treatment. She also directed Universal Newborn Hearing Screening programs at hospitals throughout San Diego.  She is now faculty at Northwestern University and continues to hold clinics at Synapse Advanced Audiology on select Saturdays throughout the year.

She is excited to have the opportunity to consolidate her professional expertise and passions into a comprehensive audiology practice designed to expand the reach of audiology and its specialties in order to increase early identification and management of hearing loss and other auditory disorders in children and adults.
