What is an Audiologist?
An audiologist is a Master's or Doctoral level health care professional who specializes in evaluating and treating individuals with hearing loss and balance disorders. Audiologists have extensive training and skills to evaluate the hearing of adults, infants, and children of all ages. Audiologists conduct a wide variety of tests to determine the exact nature of an individual's hearing problem. Audiologists present a variety of treatment options to patients with hearing impairment, which includes the fitting of hearing aids. Audiologists refer patients to physicians when the hearing problem needs medical attention. An Audiologist has special training in the prevention, identification, assessment and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders.
