What is an Audiologist?
Audiologists are health care professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and manage hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance disorders. An Audiologist is a person who holds a minimum of a Masters Degree in Audiology.
An audiologist also diagnoses, treats and monitors disorders of the auditory and vestibular system portions of the ear, and dispense hearing aids.
An Audiologist can provide you with answers to questions like these:
- What do you do when you find out that you or a loved one has a hearing loss?
- Who do I turn to for quality hearing health care?
- Can my hearing loss be helped with hearing aids?
- What are the different types of hearing loss?
