Meet Our Audiologist
We’re dedicated to helping Kankakee and Steger, IL hear better.
As part of our holistic approach to treating hearing loss, we look at the whole picture, including both your medical situation and your lifestyle. When we ask you about your symptoms and your life, we listen and we value what you have to say. Each patient who comes to see us becomes a member of our family, and we treat you like an individual. Some hearing aid distributors and audiologists have a factory-like approach, treating patients on an assembly line as quickly as possible. Here, we actually take the time to get to know you.
We create long-lasting relationships with our patients and with their families. What that means for you is that we care about your well-being, we are personally invested in making sure you have the best treatment you possibly can, and we work with you no matter how much your life and your hearing loss may change over the years. Our patients become a part of who we are, allowing us to grow as a practice; many of our new patients are word-of-mouth referrals because our existing patients are so pleased with the level of care we provide, and we take pride in that.
Peter Sotiropoulos, Au.D.
Doctor of Audiology
Dr. Peter Sotiropoulos has been in the field of hearing since the 1980s. Over the last thirty years, he’s seen the field develop extensively — in the technology behind hearing and balance testing, cochlear implants, disposable hearing aids, bone anchored and digital hearing aids, and cognitive hearing science. We have an extensive understanding of electrophysiology, the medical end of auditory processing issues, and now the sophisticated high-end treatment and hearing aid management available to patients. This is an ever-evolving field with so much potential to continue learning. For naturally curious people like Dr. Sotiropoulos and his team, that means it’s very exciting day-to-day.
Although Dr. Sotiropoulos has decades of experience in the hearing industry, his academic career began not in audiology but in synthetic organic chemistry. Working in labs made him realize that he craved personal contact and interaction with other people. His entire family is in the restaurant industry, and they are united by the belief that they should do whatever they can to make a customer’s day better. Obviously, feeding someone is different from helping them hear or minimizing their risk of falling, but Dr. Sotiropoulos carries on the family tradition of caring for each and every person he sees at the clinic.
He studied at the House Ear Institute and Otologic Medical Group, one of the premiere medical and otologic institutes in the world, where he focused his post-graduate work in medical audiology, cochlear implants, and hearing aid dispensing, both understanding and dispensing them. There, he honed his skillset and focused on the top level of services that could be provided to patients, learning from some of the most educated and expert specialists in audiology. After that, he worked in the top practices in the country specializing in tinnitus, balance and hearing aids. His career has taken him to Los Angeles, Boston, Miami, New York, and now Chicago. He has worked among and learned from some of the brightest minds in the field. And now he brings that vast experience to his own private practice.
We treat our patients like our own family because we recognize that hearing well is important in all of your relationships!
