An Audiologist is a professional dedicated to helping persons overcome hearing loss, dizziness, and associated problems.
An Audiologist is the professional who specializes in the evaluation and treatment of people with hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dizziness, and balance problems. 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 and can present a variety of treatment options to patients with hearing impairment. Audiologists dispense and fit hearing aids, administer tests of balance to evaluate dizziness, and provide hearing rehabilitation training. Audiologists refer patients to physicians when the hearing or balance problem needs medical or surgical evaluation.
