Advanced Education

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.

Our audiologists are experts in hearing conservation, rehabilitation and technology. With offices in Monroeville, Harmarville, South Hills, Penn Hills, and North Huntingdon, Hearing Unlimited has the audiology expertise to improve your hearing and quality of life.
