Peter Altidis is the Founder, Director and Senior Audiologist of More Than Hearing, a fully independent, multidisciplinary clinic with a commitment to the assessment and treatment of hearing and balance disorders for more than 30 years.

Initially completing his first degree in Speech Pathology, Peter followed with postgraduate studies in Audiology in 1987 from the University of Melbourne. He is a certified practicing Speech Pathologist and Audiologist. Also a member of all major associations including Speech Pathology Australia, Audiology Australia, and a Fellow of the Australian College of Audiology.

Peter is a past president of the Independent Audiologists Australia. He is accredited to provide hearing services to pensioners, Veteran Affairs as well as Work Cover clients.

Since graduating in 1987, he has gained experience working at the University of Melbourne department of Otolaryngology, Victorian public and private hospitals, with Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeons, primary and secondary schools and in private practice.

He has presented papers and convened conferences on auditory processing, hearing rehabilitation, hearing and cognition and patient centric hearing rehabilitation. He promotes a multidisciplinary approach to the assessment and treatment of auditory processing, tinnitus and balance disorders. He is a strong advocate of hearing rehabilitation beyond aid fitting.  These hearing and

communication services promote patient-centred hearing rehabilitation aimed at those with a hearing loss and their communication -partners, offering realistic step-by-step hearing solution programs. This is extended to pensioners and Veterans’ Affairs clients.  He is therefore happy to see clients under the Office of Hearing Services for both hearing diagnostics, hearing aid fitting and specialty hearing rehabilitation.

In the past, Peter was involved in the ongoing education (audiology) of medical students (Monash University) and till present of postgraduate audiology students competing their master degrees.

Peter maintains his ongoing continuing professional development through regular attendance at conferences and courses as well by visiting specialised clinics and university departments interstate and in the U.S.A.  He sits on Hospital Committees and is closely involved in the ongoing education of medical students, residents, ENT trainees and other medical colleagues.
