Tinnitus specialist, linguist and travel buff
Troy Cascia is a senior audiologist with expertise in diagnostic hearing assessment, hearing aid fitting, aural rehabilitation (therapies and devices to address poor hearing) and vestibular diagnostics (identifying disorders of the inner ear). He is the lead audiologist for UCSF's tinnitus program, offering diagnostic assessment, counseling and a variety of treatments. He provides services in English and Spanish to both adult and pediatric patients.
Prior to becoming an audiologist, Cascia worked in education. Now, in his work with patients, he brings his love of learning and teaching – along with patience, compassion and attention to detail – to every encounter. His patients and their families also benefit from his years of audiological practice in a variety of health care settings.
Past president of the California Academy of Audiology, Cascia continues to promote community awareness of the audiology profession and health care for hearing.
In his spare time, Cascia enjoys traveling, hiking in the Bay Area, choral singing, and volunteering both in the local community and internationally.
