Doctor Philip Zazove is deaf. When he was young, his parents were told he would never have a successful career because of his hearing loss. Luckily, Philip’s parents refused to believe it and now he is one of the first deaf physicians to be certified in the United States. As well as his family practice, Philip mentors young deaf and hard of hearing physicians in training. He says, “My life has been a wonderful journey. My parents made all the difference by refusing to believe my hearing loss was an insurmountable barrier.”.
