Nathan D. Berg aud., CCC-A
When I was a small boy, I survived a life-threatening infection of bacterial meningitis which resulted in a complete loss of hearing in my right ear and a high frequency hearing loss in my left ear. This was the impetus that led me to pursue a career in audiology: to help others with hearing impairments.
I earned an associate degree in liberal arts from Milwaukee Area Technical College, a Bachelor of Science degree in communication sciences and disorders from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and, finally, a doctor of audiology degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
My areas of clinical expertise are hearing evaluations and fittings, cochlear implant programming, osseointegrated prosthesis (BAHA), tinnitus evaluation and management, aural rehabilitation, diagnostic audiology (hearing and vestibular testing, electrophysiology, such as, ABR, EcochG, VEMP, DPOAE, and TEOAE), and hearing conservation. I work with the major hearing aid companies and help patients choose which companies products works best for them.
I have worked as an audiologist with Steven Millen, M.D., and Linda Barbian, Au.D., for many years at Milwaukee Otologic and later Aurora Otology/Neurotology, and, finally, Aurora Head & Neck Surgeons. What drew me to work with Hear Wisconsin was my colleagues and I frequently worked with Hear Wisconsin (previously Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing) while at Milwaukee Otologic, as well as the knowing the services they provide for patients who are deaf and hearing impaired for which I am passionate to help as well.
I have a lust for life and enjoy drawing, painting, writing, reading, working-out, fixing stuff, gardening, traveling, hunting, and most of all spending time with loved ones, especially my wife, Margarita, and 3, soon to be 4, children.
