Audiologists: Your Hearing Care Professionals
What is an Audiologist?
An Audiologist is a University trained health care professional who has specialized in the care of your hearing and how it affects the quality of your life.
Why has my Doctor referred me to an Audiologist?
Your Doctor has become aware of a potential hearing problem that requires the specialized attention of an Audiologist. Audiologists are trained specifically in the testing and evaluation of your hearing and are licensed to prescribe solutions that will help you to hear better.
How can an Audiologist help me?
Today's sophisticated technologies require that hearing practitioners have special training and expertise. Your complete hearing evaluation along with your personal preferences and communication needs, will determine the type and style of hearing aids that will be best suited for you. During the fitting process your Audiologist or Hearing Instrument Specialist can make fine adjustments to your hearing aids so that they will perform at their best. They can also help with on-going maintenance, adjustments and, if necessary, repairs to your hearing aids.
Your Audiologist and Hearing Instrument Specialist will take the guesswork out of choosing the right hearing system for you and will help guide you to make the best selection.
