Ambassador - Dr. Rebecca Witter

Audiologist with Hearing Evaluation Services of Buffalo, Inc.



"None of us [with normal hearing] can really understand what it's like to live without that critical sense of hearing. Seeing these HearStrong Champions rise above that is inspiring. Living with hearing loss isn't easy, but a HearStrong Champion would tell you that they never expected it to be easy. It's that kind of attitude and outlook that sets them apart in my book."

Dr. Witter has been with Hearing Evaluation Services since 2009. In addition to being a clinical audiologist, she is also the Director of Public Relations for HES. She is a graduate of the University at Buffalo and completed her clinical residency at Hearing Evaluation Services. While at UB, Dr. Witter conducted research on the development of drug therapies to prevent noise-induced hearing loss, specifically for individuals serving in the United States Armed Forces. Her research was published to Noise & Health in 2011.

Dr. Witter served on the Emerging Business Leader’s Advisory Board; a young professionals organization governed by the Amherst Chamber of Commerce from 2013-2016. Her efforts as Vice Chair of the Board were focused on the role of small businesses and how they would contribute to the resurgence of the city of Buffalo.

Dr. Witter studied audiology abroad, traveling to schools and hospitals throughout England, Scotland, and Wales in an effort to gain a more global perspective on the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss. Upon completion of her doctoral degree, she was selected as the recipient of the nationally recognized “Who’s Who Among Students” award for academic achievement and leadership. She is a strong supporter of the HearStrong Foundation, which serves to recognize individuals who have overcome their hearing loss and gone on to excel in sports, academics, and their careers.

Dr. Witter is passionate about educating her patients so that they can make informed and educated decisions about their hearing healthcare. Dr. Witter is the voice of HES, and her monthly educational radio show airs on WBEN 930 AM where she discusses a variety of topics focusing on the impact of untreated hearing loss on patients and their families. Dr. Witter’s is experienced in the areas of balance assessment and treatment, hearing devices, Bluetooth-integrated hearing technologies, and custom hearing protection for musicians and hunters.

Away from the office, Dr. Witter is a dedicated triathlete. She has inspired friends, family members, and patients with hearing loss to compete alongside her in her beloved sport of triathlon. She is originally from Waterloo, New York in the Finger Lakes region. She lives in Buffalo with her husband Steve and their golden retriever, Ruben.


On September 14, 2014, Dr. Witter assisted the HearStrong Foundation in honoring HearStrong Champion Danielle Strassle at the 2014 Buffalo Bills Alumni VIP Tailgate Event in Buffalo, NY. Also in attendance were Ed Keller, president of the HearStrong Foundation, Joe Delamiellure, NFL Hall of Famer and former lineman for the Buffalo Bills, and Anne Orsene of Hearing Evaluation Services of Buffalo.
