About Melissa

Dr. Melissa Wikoff received her Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree from Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine’s Program in Audiology and Communication Sciences. Prior to receiving her doctorate, Dr. Wikoff completed a Capstone research study entitled: Role of Alpha-Synuclein in Noise-Induced Hearing Loss.  She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech and Hearing Science from the University of Maryland, College Park. While studying in Maryland, Dr. Wikoff was a University Scholar in the Life Science Program and studied abroad in Belize, Central America. 

Dr. Wikoff is licensed to practice audiology in the state of Georgia. She is a board certified audiologist with the American Board of Audiology (ABA), a member of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA), a fellow member of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA), a member of the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA), and a member of the Georgia Academy of Audiology (GAA).

Originally from West Hartford, Connecticut, Dr. Wikoff now resides in Atlanta with her husband, their daughter, and two lovable-but-crazy dogs. Dr. Wikoff loves to spin on her stationary bike, practice yoga, and play Mah jongg. Having seen the frustrating effects of hearing loss that affected her grandfathers after their service in World War II, Melissa dedicated herself to better, more personalized hearing healthcare, which she is now proud to provide in Marietta!
