Patty Beringer has more than three decades of experience helping people of all ages. She gives hearing tests to patients before and after surgery, as well as testing kids with speech or language delays or histories of fluid in their ears. She grew up in a medical family — her father was a surgeon and her mom was a nurse — and became fascinated with audiology as an undergraduate college student. She previously worked in academic health systems, a private ENT clinic and a large public school system, and she’s excited to use her knowledge and experience to help patients at MU Health Care.
