"So many of life’s pleasures involve hearing: gatherings with family and friends, the sounds of nature, a wonderful lecture or show, a child’s laughter... I am rewarded every time I witness a patient’s positive reaction to better hearing. It is a privilege to be an instrumental part of these life-changing experiences."

When she is not seeing patients, Dr. Nagel enjoys outdoor fitness activities, reading, cooking, volunteering, and spending time with her husband and seven amazing children.
