Audiology Services at UPMC Hamot

The hearing health care professionals of the UPMC Hamot Audiology Department are dedicated to improving quality of life through better hearing and communication. Although we serve patients of all ages, we specialize in pediatric assessments, and are a Pennsylvania Department of Health approved site for newborn hearing screening follow-ups and infant diagnostic testing.

Following a comprehensive assessment, the audiologist will recommend appropriate treatment including hearing aids and other amplification devices, if indicated. A thorough explanation of all hearing test results are provided at the time of your appointment.
