Stefanie Abdayem is a doctor of audiology who has earned her Certification of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. Stefanie attended Newman University for a year, then transferred to Wichita State University where she completed her bachelors in Communication Sciences and Disorders and her doctorate of audiology. Initially, Stefanie was interested in speech pathology, but once she realized the immediate gratification patients experience through clinical therapies, she knew audiology was her future.
Stefanie’s specialty is primarily diagnostics and amplification, and she has developed an interest in auditory processing disorder, a processing issue affecting school-aged children and adults. Stefanie grew up in Wichita and with the exception of a one-year externship and an additional year of employment in Kansas City, has made Wichita her home. It is, after all, where she grew up working in her parents’ restaurant business, and where she cherishes time spent spoiling her nieces and nephews. Stefanie appreciates the culture of teamwork among the doctors and providers at Mid-Kansas ENT.
