Dr. Alyssa Bhat
Dr. Alyssa Bhat is the audiologist at our offices in Midlothian and West End. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Bhat earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from The Ohio State University in Ohio, where she also minored in Disability studies.
She subsequently went on to pursue her doctorate degree at Northwestern University, eventually joining Ohio ENT and Allergy Physicians/ Hearing Health solutions as a doctoral resident before graduating and becoming a full-time audiologist at Live Better Hearing. Her clinical rotations also included Northwestern Memorial Hospital, MacNeal Hospital, Sertoma Speech and Hearing Center, Hearing Professionals of Illinois, and Northwestern University Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning . Her doctoral thesis, “Hidden Hearing Loss,” concentrated on patients’ difficulty with speech-in-noise utilizing electrophysiology, auditory processing tasks, otoacoustic emissions, subjective questionnaires, and other audiological assessments.
Dr. Bhat specializes in diagnostic hearing testing and vestibular assessments. She places a great deal of emphasis on health literacy among patients from all backgrounds, and she enjoys working with patients of all ages and abilities. Her clinical interests include tinnitus management, hearing aids, implantable devices, and auditory processing across the lifespan.
Outside of the office, Dr. Bhat likes to spend time hiking outdoors, cooking, baking, and playing with her two dogs.
Ashley Edwards is a Patient Care Coordinator here at Live Better Hearing + Balance at both our Midlothian and Mechanicsville office locations. One of the major perks of her job is listening to patients share their various stories of life adventures that they have experienced over the years. Along with that being able to be a part of their journey to higher quality hearing is also a bonus.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family, going to the gym and trying new restaurants around town with friends.
She looks forward to seeing you at your first appointment here with us at Live Better Hearing + Balance.
