Dr. Ariel Fruendt







Co-Owner and Clinical Audiologist, Menlo Park and Los Altos office

I went to school at Northwestern University for my undergraduate degree and Au.D. I completed my clinical externship at UCSF Medical Center, then worked in private practice.

We moved to Chicago for my husband’s job and I worked in private practice there before joining the clinical faculty at Northwestern University’s on-campus clinic.

I served as a preceptor for Au.D. students, focusing on adult diagnostics and treatment, tinnitus management, and hearing conservation. I also taught ethics in audiology courses and oversaw an amplification lecture series.

My favorite thing about Pacific Hearing Service is the dynamic and supportive team environment that always puts the patient first, with dedication to using evidence-based practice in our everyday protocols.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family – husband Nick and infant son Owen. We love exploring the outdoors – walking, running, biking, hiking, and discovering everything the Bay Area has to offer.
