An audiologist since 1986, Dr. David K. Woodruff holds a Doctorate in Audiology from A. T. Still University (ATSU) – Arizona School of Health Sciences and a graduate degree in Communicative Disorders from San Diego State University. Subsequently he taught as an adjunct professor at San Diego State University training and lecturing nurses, hospital staff, and the public. In addition, he served as Audiology Consultant for the Poway School District in San Diego County. Dr. Woodruff has also served on the Board for the California Academy of Audiology and is currently a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

Specializing in clinical audiology, hearing aid dispensing, sound and noise control, sound level and environment studies for corporations, industries and municipalities nationwide, Dr. Woodruff also serves as an expert witness for legal cases involving hearing or noise trauma that cause hearing loss, vertigo and tinnitus.

Dr. Woodruff began private practice in San Diego in 1990, when he founded and managed the Hearing and Balance Center (across from Sharp Hospital) in Kearny Mesa, North County Audiology in Carmel Mountain and Rancho Santa Fe Audiology in Rancho Santa Fe.

Today, Dr. Woodruff continues his passion working and caring for patients at Rancho Santa Fe Audiology.

Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

With a friendly staff, Dr. Woodruff was professional but not stiff. He was candid and informative. I had never been to an audiologist before so I had a lot to learn and absorb. He made it as easy as it can be.

Overall Rating

I had a hearing test done by Dr. Woodruff at Rancho Santa Fe Audiology and was pleased with the entire experience. They are located in the charming village of Rancho Santa Fe with parking in the attached lot. I was greeted by a friendly staff who made me feel welcome and comfortable. The exam was conducted efficiently by Dr. Woodruff and the results given immediately to me. Fortunately he said I scored in the top 15 percentile of my age group and needed no aids. I was most appreciative of being offered this free exam and should my hearing change down the road, I would definitely go back to them.
