An Audiologist is the only university-educated professional who is specifically trained to assess, diagnose, and treat hearing loss. They have extensive training with advanced equipment and evaluation procedures to accurately assess hearing function. They are the most qualified professionals to help you throughout your journey with hearing loss.
For these reasons, we strongly encourage those in need to find an Audiologist to manage your hearing healthcare needs. If you’re still unsure as to why you should choose an Audiologist, consider these things:
Audiologists have the necessary education.
General practitioners will know the basics of hearing loss, but because they are trained to treat a broad range of health issues, they often are not as well-versed in hearing healthcare. Audiologists, on the other hand, spend all of their education learning about the ear and hearing.
They know the right tests to perform.
A professional has to be well-trained in order to be accurate in conducting tests and to understand the findings. Audiologists are able to both administer the needed tests and analyze their results before explaining them to you. Audiologists are also able to create a treatment plan that is best suited for your needs.
They are specialists in hearing aids.
Audiologists are very familiar with the many different hearing aid manufacturers, styles, and models and can help you decide which hearing aids are best for your hearing loss, lifestyle, and budget. They will also fit your hearing aids and customize them for your own specific needs. You could buy the most expensive hearing aids in the world and get little benefit from them if you don’t have an Audiologist who’s prepared to alter them to your own personal needs. They will also set up routine checks to monitor your ear health and hearing devices.
