Jaime Goldfarb-Taylor, Au.D. CCC-A

Jaime Goldfarb-Taylor received her Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) from Montclair State University (MSU) in 2014. Her desire to help people was heavily influenced by growing up in a family of health care providers. From a young age, Jaime worked at the family business, Millburn Physical Therapy Center, where her father, Dr. Mark Goldfarb, D.C. taught the importance of making patient care and education the highest priorities. This philosophy was also instilled in Jaime, by her aunt, Barbara Goldfarb-Portnoff, M.S. CCC-SLP, a Speech-Language Pathologist, and her uncle, Dr. David Goldfarb, D.O., an ENT Physician and owner of Princeton Ears Nose and Throat.

While at MSU, Jaime pursued her passion for vestibular assessment and rehabilitation. Her Doctoral research investigated predictive measures of risk for falling in adults 65 and older. During her education, Jaime interned at a variety of practices, including: American Audiology and Balance, Staten Island Audiology and Balance Center, Speech and Hearing Associates, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Lake Drive School for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children, and MSU Center for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Jaime has had the opportunity to work with ENTs, speech-language pathologists, and physical and occupational therapists. Because of her exposure, Jaime saw that in order to provide optimal care, it is important to have a multitude of health care professionals under one roof. Through collaboration, the Goldfarb family has formed Millburn Hearing & Balance, making the idea of a team approach to Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) into a reality.

Jaime has extensive experience with hearing aids, comprehensive audiological evaluations, performing videonystagmography (VNG) testing, and auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing. She has earned a specialty certification in Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy through the American Institute of Balance (Dr. Richard E. Gans, Ph.D.), and is a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and New Jersey Academy of Audiology.

Mathew Figueiras, Au.D. CCC-A

Mathew Figueiras completed his bachelors of science in Audiology and Speech Pathology in 2009 from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. His doctoral degree in Audiology (Au.D.) was completed at Montclair State University (MSU) in 2014. His passion for audiology stems from a long-standing exposure to the field through personal, academic, and professional experiences. Mathew comes from a family deeply seeded in Communication Science Disorders, with numerous family members currently practicing as Speech-Language Pathologist and Audiologists.

His eight-year education in audiology included extensive training in hospitals, private practices, and schools across New Jersey. During his graduate education, he trained at the Montclair State University Center for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, St. Joseph’s Childrens Hospital, The Lake Drive Program for children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing, JFK Rehabilitation Center, and University Hospital in Newark. His diverse training allowed him to obtain vast clinical skills including comprehensive audiologic and vestibular evaluations for the pediatric, adult, geriatric, and special needs populations.

Mathew’s strong family ties and consistent exposure to the Communication Science Disorders guided him to dedicate his life to advocating for those with communication deficits and ultimately led him to his career as an audiologist at Millburn Audiology & Balance.

Mathew has extensive experience with hearing aids, comprehensive audiological evaluations, performing videonystagmography (VNG) testing, and auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing.
