What is Audiology?

Audiology is the branch of healthcare dedicated to the study, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of hearing and balance disorders. Audiologists are highly trained professionals who specialize in helping individuals of all ages address hearing and balance issues. Whether you're experiencing hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dizziness, or other auditory concerns, audiologists are your go-to experts for comprehensive care.

What is an Audiologist?

Audiologists are your partners in preserving and improving your hearing health. Their role encompasses a wide range of responsibilities, including:

  • Hearing assessments: Audiologists perform detailed hearing assessments to evaluate the type and degree of hearing loss you are experiencing. These assessments often include pure-tone audiometry, speech audiometry, and tympanometry to assess the health of the ear.
  • Diagnosis: Based on the results of your hearing assessments, audiologists can diagnose the specific cause and nature of your hearing or balance issue. This diagnosis is essential for developing a tailored treatment plan.
  • Customized treatments: Our audiologists and ear doctors work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that may include hearing aids, assistive listening devices, cochlear implants, or other interventions, depending on your needs.
  • Hearing aid fitting and programming: Audiologists are experts in selecting, fitting, and programming hearing aids to match your unique hearing profile and lifestyle. They ensure that your hearing aids provide optimal sound quality and comfort.
  • Balance assessments: For individuals experiencing balance issues or dizziness, audiologists conduct specialized assessments to identify the underlying causes, which may include disorders of the inner ear.
  • Tinnitus management: Audiologists offer tinnitus evaluations and management strategies to help individuals cope with the ringing or buzzing sounds in their ears.
  • Pediatric audiology: Audiologists also work with children to assess and manage hearing and balance issues, including hearing screenings for newborns and infants.
  • Education and counseling: Audiologists educate patients about hearing health, prevention of hearing loss, and strategies for effective communication. They provide counseling to help individuals and their families adapt to hearing loss.
  • Rehabilitation: Audiologists may recommend speech therapy, auditory rehabilitation, or other services to help patients maximize their communication abilities.
