About Paige

At Great Hills ENT and the Hearing & Balance Center of Austin we strive to provide the type of personal care that unfortunately has seemingly been lost to a numbers productivity game. While many people view hearing aids and amplification as a commodity, it is not, it is a therapy tool. I do not believe in "selling" and refuse to sell a hearing aid. I provide hearing aids and services in a medical model. Meaning you pay cost for the hearing aids and then only pay for the services needed. You have better things to do with your money than pay me for work I didn't do. We offer only the latest in hearing aid technology from the main six hearing aid providers. In 2012 I joined the healthcare family at Great Hills ENT. I received my Audiological training from the University of Wyoming (Laramie, WY) , Univeristy of Kansas (Lawrence, KS) and University of Kansas Medical Center (Kansas City, KS). My career with service in the VA Health Care System (Colmery- O’Neal VAMC) in Topeka, KS and later transferred to New Mexico to serve within four Native communities. In 2010 I left government service to pursue research and network applications of direct patient care via telemedical applications. As the founder and President of Teledoc™, my research currently involves direct patient care for both adults and pediatric populations using tele-audiology as well as exploring other telemedical solutions for improving the quality of patient care. I believe that the journey to better hearing does not end with the fitting of amplification and requires an on-going relationship between patient and provider. I strive to provide patient-oriented, quality care that helps each patient reach their full potential and realize a better quality of life. I hold Board Certification in Audiology.


Our hearing is just as important as our balance. As we age, our ability to independantly function in the world around us becomes more and more important. While a hearing loss can negatively affect our ability to communicate with first responders, our doctors and family, it can also affect our ability to localize sound. As we age, we are at a great risk for falling. We take that very seriously. Our trained staff of Otolaryngologists, Audiologists and Physical Therapists are dedicated to help ensure that your hearing and balance systems are functioning to keep you at a quality of life you have come to expect.

As the Director of Hearing & Balance at Great Hills ENT and the Hearing & Balance Center o f Austin, I specialize in neurophysiological, balance and hearing related disorders for both adults and children. For our patients with hearing loss and tinnitus, the latest in hearing aid technology and tinnitus management is available. Patients are seen on a daily basis by appointment. Paige Peterson AuD, PhD
