An audiologist is a licensed or registered healthcare professional with specialized training in the auditory and vestibular systems of the ear. Audiologists can help patients with hearing and balance problems.
An audiologist has a masters or doctoral degree. This education prepares them to identify, diagnose, treat and monitor hearing and other ear problems. In addition to conducting audiometric evaluations and dispensing hearing aids and assistive listening devices, audiologists counsel families and make medical referrals when necessary. Medical or surgical needs can be discovered through evaluation of the patient’s history, physical examinations and hearing tests.
Patients Of All Ages
Because hearing loss can occur at any time of life, audiologists work with patients of all ages, from infants who have early hearing problems to older adults who experience age-related hearing loss. Children with untreated hearing loss can have more difficulty in school and experience developmental delays, making it important to screen for hearing problems throughout life.
