Your hearing is an essential part of a quality life: when you hear better, you live better.
When you are ready to take the steps towards better hearing, it’s important to choose the most qualified professional to assist you in developing a successful, healthy hearing plan.
An Audiologist is an expert in hearing loss. They have focused their career on helping those with hearing and balance disorders, and have earned a Masters or Doctorate in Audiology from an accredited university. The audiologist’s title is then Au.D or Doctor of Audiology.
An Audiologist is trained to evaluate the entire auditory system and to perform diagnostic assessments to rule out any medical issues that can have serious consequences. Your audiologist analyzes your health history, including factors such as medications, genetics, diseases, physiology, and exposure to noise to determine their effects on your hearing.
Being a good Audiologist involves more than holding an educational background and practical experience, however. An Audiologist also understands the importance of being a good communicator and great listener, and is capable of translating your experience into a technical solution for better hearing.
As someone with whom you’ll invest your time and money, it’s important to choose an Audiologist you can trust and are comfortable with to discuss your questions and concerns. An Audiologist will be a part of your life for many years to come, committing themselves to giving you the best hearing possible through follow up visits and consistent quality care.
