Rita McWilliams (Retired)
Doctor of Audiology
A Word from Dr. McWilliams:
After a full career providing compassionate and skillful audiological care, I am retiring to Hawaii with my husband. I will carry with me the fondest memories of my patients, colleagues and friends moving forward, but it is time for my next adventure!
It is with bittersweet excitement that I hand off the reigns of Audiology Associates of Redding to Dr. Brenna Melvin, Au.D. and look toward a well-earned retirement. I know Dr. Melvin and her team will carry on the tradition of excellence that I established in 1985 when I opened this practice. I hope you will join me in wishing Dr. Melvin and her team the best of luck; may she experience the same joy that caring for our wonderful community’s hearing health has brought me all these years.Dr. Rita McWilliams
Founder, Audiology Associates of Redding
