Who You'll See at Your Appointment
Erin Graugnard Rushing
Hi there! I am Dr. Rushing, but you can call me “Erin.” I earned my Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D) from LSU in 2012, but my passion for hearing began long before that. As an undergraduate student majoring in Biology at UL Lafayette, I studied hair cells in sea anemones. Similar to the hair cells in the human ear that detect vibrations in the air, sea anemones have hair cells that detect vibrations in water. However, sea anemones are able to repair their own hair cells and humans cannot. The time spent in the lab inspired me to learn more about human hearing.
As a native of St. James, I am dedicated and passionate about serving Louisiana’s Bayou region which is why my husband and I started Comprehensive Hearing Solutions in Houma, Louisiana. We believe in delivering you top-notch hearing healthcare services grounded in current research and best practices in the field of audiology. We pride ourselves in being honest, trustworthy and professional.
Here is some additional information about my passion & expertise in all things hearing:
While studying for my doctorate at LSU, I participated in audiological research at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, learning from the nation’s leading research audiologists.
Also while at LSU, I completed the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) traineeship.
Throughout my graduate studies at LSUHSC, I was on faculty at River Parishes Community College and continue to teach courses each semester for RPCC.
In 2012, I earned my Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) from LSU Health Sciences Center and was awarded the LSUHSC School of Allied Health Professionals Chencellor’s Award for scholarship, leadership, and professional excellence.
In 2011, I began practicing as an extern with Creel Hearing Center and continued working there after graduation for five years where I cultivated my passion to help people with hearing loss.
Louisiana Academy of Audiology (LAA), American Academy of Audiology (AAA), Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA), and the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA).
I actively seek out the newest and best research in all things regarding audiology to better serve my patients through continued education.
After practicing and living in Metairie for five years, our family felt it was time to come home. With the loving support of family and others, we started Comprehensive Hearing Solutions in the fall of 2016 with the intent to deliver top-notch hearing healthcare to Louisiana’s Bayou Region. Our primary passion is serving our patients. We feel that the best care provided in the field of audiology are at the hands of private practitioners. “A smaller clinic provides the clinician ample time for adequate patient care, a vital part of assessing and managing hearing loss and communication needs.”
When you walk in, you'll be greeted by Walter (but you can call him Wally). He'll help you get checked in and make sure that you're comfortable and prepared for your appointment.
