Dr. Massoodnia utilizes an integrated, patient-centered approach and the most recent medical advancements to deliver high-caliber care across the spectrum of ear disorders. To uncover the root of the issue, she strives to understand patients as a whole through active listening and thoughtful questioning, rather than viewing them as a sum of their symptoms. This enables Dr. Massoodnia to extract subtle and seemingly-unrelated details from clinical history to shed light on a patient's current symptoms while using cutting-edge technology to identify peripheral ear dysfunction or central dysfunction, along neural pathways beyond the ear. The ultimate goal is to improve a patient's quality of life and functionality, which is optimized through a multi-disciplinary and patient-focused approach conducted with evidence-based methods.

What Our Clients Have to Say

"Dr. Roxanna Massoodnia is extremely talented in vestibular therapy, and balance issues. Upon the completion of therapy, my balance and VOR was back to normal and I no longer felt like I was constantly on a cruise ship.  Not only is Dr. Massoodnia a very talented and gifted audiologist, her personality and demeanor with patients rates a 10+ and a doctor who genuinely cares about her patients. Seaside Audiology has the most advanced technological devices and equipment that made me feel like I was receiving the most current advances in audiology from the most trusted audiologist that I have seen over the years."

-Mark

"Dr. Massoodnia is by far the most knowledgeable and compassionate doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with...Needless to say, my daily life has improved dramatically: I no longer find myself losing days from my vertigo, ear and imbalance attacks, or living in fear of sudden bouts of dizziness without knowing what provoked them. Now, I can focus on what matters in life...Dr. Massoodnia at Seaside Audiology earns my highest recommendation and I am happy to have her as an integral part of my medical team!"

-Marta

 “Dr. Massoodnia is amazing! She is incredibly knowledgeable and observant and helped me tremendously. I crawled in super dizzy in with BPPV ear crystals loose and I walked out of her office, after a spin in the Epley chair, able to walk and drive almost immediately. Follow-up therapy helped me to truly get back up myself and I am so grateful. She's the best! Thank you Dr. Massoodnia!!!!”

-Leslie

“I reluctantly came in to see Dr. Roxanna after a long a battle with my wife. She has been saying I have a hearing loss for years, but really, I thought she was a soft-spoken mumbler. Dr. Roxanna made the process very smooth and explained the hearing testing and hearing aid prescription very coherently... I was taking my ears for granted. Since being fit with hearing aids, I’ve become aware of how much I was missing. And the best part is my wife’s complaints have become more infrequent!”

-Tony
