What is an Audiologist?
Audiologists are health-care professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and manage hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance disorders in newborns, children, and adults.
Audiologists are trained experts who:
- Evaluate hearing using behavioral and objective (non-behavioral) test procedures
- Identify hearing loss
- Refer patients to an otolaryngologist (ENT) for medical or surgical management of hearing loss
- Determine need for hearing rehabilitation
- Determine candidacy for hearing aids
- Select and fit hearing aids
- Evaluate the balance system
The professional staff at the Ear, Nose, Throat and Allergy Center is highly experienced in comprehensive Audiological diagnostic evaluations, hearing aid fittings, and screenings.
Hearing aids come in various styles, and have 100% digital circuitry. Today’s hearing aids are affordable and are aesthetically appealing to everyone.
These devices can help facilitate improved face-to-face communication, reception of electronic media, telephone reception, and reception of important warning sounds and situations.
