About Twin Rivers Hearing Health, Inc.

Twin Rivers Hearing Health, Inc. is a private audiology and hearing aid dispensing practice. Now one of the top audiology practices in Rhode Island, it was originally established 18 years ago as Providence Hearing Center to provide complete audiology, hearing aid, worker's compensation, and related services to Rhode Island residents. It continues to fulfill this mission today.

Specializing in industrial audiology, Dr. Uchmanowicz served as a clinical audiologist and manager of the Hearing Conservation Program for General Dynamics at Quonset Point, RI for 12 years. She then began a solo private practice in Providence, RI in 1992. While she was practicing there, it became apparent that her specialty was needed throughout the entire state of Rhode Island and she realized that she needed a more central location.

She began to search for a place that would serve a wider population but not take her too far from Providence County, where her original client base was located. She selected a retail site in a shopping plaza on Douglas Pike, Route 7, conveniently located off Route 295 and 146 and bordering the towns of Lincoln, North Providence, and Smithfield.

Construction began in the summer of 2001. On July 1 of that year, Providence Hearing Center became incorporated and changed its name to Twin Rivers Hearing Health, Inc. A few months later, they moved to the newly constructed practice location.

Hearing aids

The Twin Rivers Hearing Health office uses the most advanced clinical equipment available in order to analyze all types of hearing problems. As a hearing aid dispensing office, our staff also has extensive expertise with state-of-the-art hearing aid technology like programmable and digital processing instruments.

Our professionals seek to promote hearing health by making information, advice, and referrals available to our clients. We also recognize that other concerns such as isolation, anxiety, and depression may accompany hearing loss, and so we always give our clients the necessary time to discuss their needs and concerns. This critical aspect of our services sets us apart from our competitors.
