Philosophy of Care

“I am an enthusiastic audiologist dedicated to achieving superior patient outcomes by partnering with patients and their families. I believe in taking the time to describe test results and recommendations, and including my patients in every decision of their hearing healthcare. I want my patients to leave feeling confident and well informed whether the appointment entailed a hearing test only, or involved choosing/fitting of hearing devices. I love working with patients of all ages, and have a particular passion for working with pediatric patients.”


Dr. Wisneski joined Alliance ENT and Hearing Center in December 2015 after relocating to Wisconsin. Prior to joining Alliance ENT, Dr. Wisneski was a pediatric audiologist at Seattle Children’s Hospital for 5 years. She specializes in adult and pediatric behavioral diagnostic evaluations, electrophysiologic evaluations (auditory brainstem response and otoacoustic emissions), and hearing aid fittings for all ages. Dr. Wisneski has a passion for research and continuing education. She has presented at several conferences, most recently at the American Auditory Society Scientific and Technology conference in 2016.

Outside of work, Dr. Wisneski enjoys spending time with her husband and son as they explore new adventures living in Wisconsin.
