Brooke Pieczara, AuD
Brooke Pieczara joined the Division of Audiology last December. While her work in the Division covers all patient groups, Dr. Pieczara is focused on vestibular diagnosis and treatment, along with work on Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids (BAHA), including with pediatric patients. “There’s a very broad range of patients here,” she said. “I like the meatier, challenging cases.” Her work over the first few months has involved collaboration with Miriam I. Redleaf, M.D., head of Otology/Neurotology, and physical therapists, among others, particularly on vestibular cases. She added that working with children, especially in BAHA cases, has “really opened my eyes.” A Chicagoland native, Dr. Pieczara came to UI from a suburban Chicago ENT practice. During her doctoral training at Indiana University, she also trained at Resurrection Medical Center and St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago, as well as St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital. She earned her BS degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences from Purdue University.
