Meet Dr. Sarah Kate Fisher

What’s your favorite season?

Spring – it always signifies a new beginning and longer days. It means I get to go outside when I get home during the week and feel the sunshine on my face. I love the smell of the earth as I turn the soil in my garden beds. I usually feel rejuvenated after having spent most of the winter inside hibernating.

Who is your favorite sports team?

Ohio State Buckeyes. Go Bucks!!!What is your favorite food?

Ice Cream. Any flavor. Any time of year.Dog or Cat?

Dogs.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for free, where would you go?

Patagonia. It’s my dream vacation to hike to the tip of South America and then take a cutter ship into Antarctica.

Dr. Sarah Kate Fisher was born and raised in Huntsville and received her bachelor’s from the University of Alabama and her doctorate from Auburn University.

Although her purpose as an audiologist is to treat hearing loss and other hearing disorders, she doesn’t just focus on the ears, she also focuses on the person. Any given day, you will catch Dr. Fisher completing a functional hearing assessment, fitting someone with their first hearing aids, counseling a patient’s family on the best communication strategies, taking impressions for hearing protection, evaluating other ear disorders (such as tinnitus, misophonia, hyperacusis), or just cleaning earwax from a patient’s ear.

Her favorite thing about being part of the team is that “we’re all researchers, if there’s a new article being published that could improve patient care, we all discuss it and come up with ways to implement it into the practice.”

Outside of the clinic, she enjoys reading books, hiking, crocheting, and watching Supercross and college football.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for free, where would you go?

Back to Alaska! I’ve been twice, but there’s still so much more to see.

Dr Sarah Kate Fisher Bio

“I have an unusual hearing loss and have been to almost every audiologist in this area and have never received as much information and as much help for my hearing loss as Alabama Hearing Associates. They are extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and careful to program the hearing aids so that so that you get the best hearing experience possible. I can’t recommend them more highly. Thank you, Doctor Susan and Doctor Sarah!!!”

Basic Hearing Test

A basic hearing test begins with an air conduction test. You will be seated in a soundproof booth and single-use, foam earphones will be inserted into your ear canals. The Audiologist will ask you to push a button or raise your hand when you barely hear a series of beeps (tones) presented at various frequencies (pitches) to obtain your air conduction thresholds.

To determine whether your hearing loss is a conductive (mechanical) loss, sensorineural (permanent) loss or combination of the two, we perform a bone conduction test.  

For this test, a head band is place on the bone behind one of the ears to obtain your bone conduction thresholds. This process provides a different form of sound transmission using vibration, which bypasses the eardrum and the middle ear bones and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. When you hear the beeps/tones, you will push a button or raise your hand.

If bone conduction thresholds are better than air conduction thresholds (through the foam inserts), you have a conductive hearing loss. This suggests a problem with the mechanical structures (moving parts) of the ears.

Conductive hearing loss is often a medically treatable condition for which we will provide you with a referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician. However, if bone and air conduction thresholds match, it indicates a sensorineural hearing loss (permanent), and the treatment will likely involve hearing aids.
