What is an audiologist?
An audiologist is a professional who promotes healthy hearing, communication competency, and quality of life for persons of all ages through the prevention, identification, assessment, and rehabilitation of hearing, auditory function, balance and other related systems. Audiologists:
- Evaluate and diagnose hearing loss
- Prescribe, fit and dispense hearing aids and other amplification and hearing assistance technologies
- Promote hearing conservation through education
- Assess and treat individuals, especially children, with central auditory processing disorders
- Assess and treat individuals with tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and manage all types of hearing loss in people of all ages
Pediatric audiology: Infants and children with a wide range of hearing disorders receive caring diagnostic and rehabilitation services at our facilities. Our early intervention diagnostics ensure that children get help within critical periods of auditory and speech language development. We help our patients navigate insurance coverage for children’s hearing problems and identify other funding programs available. Tests include hearing screenings for newborns, visual reinforcement audiometry, conditioned play audiometry, diagnostic auditory brainstem response testing, auditory steady state response testing, and other state-of-the-art screening tools.
Adult audiology: Adults age 18 and older should have their hearing tested once every 10 years until age 50. After age 50, adults should have their hearing tested about every three years.
You will receive comprehensive diagnostic and rehabilitation services using the most-advanced equipment and techniques. If you need a hearing device, our licensed therapists will fit you with the latest technology to expand your hearing and help you feel comfortable using it. We can also assist you with insurance coverage and financial arrangements.
Adult amplification: We offer consultation services to help you select the best hearing aid for your situation. We will also adjust and reprogram your hearing aid under warranty at no additional cost and we will clean and maintain your hearing aids. For a small fee, we will also program digital hearing aids bought outside of our office.
Custom ear molds: Our facilities offer ear molds for Bluetooth devices, noise protection, shooting plugs, swim molds, musician earplugs, iPod custom plugs, and anesthesia monitoring plugs.
