"But what a humiliation for me when someone standing next to me heard a flute in the distance and I heard nothing, or someone standing next to me heard a shepard singing and again I heard nothing. such incidents drove me almost to despair; a little more of that and I would have ended my life - It was only my art that held me back." Ludwig van Beethoven
An important question we are often asked....Why an Audiologist?
An Audiologist is one of three types of professionals who treat hearing loss, and with their combination of educational background and clinical skills, an Audiologist is the most highly trained specialist to care for hearing loss.
What do audiologists treat?
Audiologists possess either a master’s or a doctorate in audiology, and are the ultimate expert when it comes to your sense of hearing. If you are experiencing mild or severe hearing loss, they will conduct a variety of tests to determine its type, source and degree. If your hearing loss is significant enough, audiologists will recommend, dispense and fit the appropriate hearing aid or assistive device. They also deal with other hearing problems like tinnitus and inner ear balance. As well as being experts in hearing conservation. Essentially, audiologists deal with all non-medical aspects of hearing. You should seek out an audiologist (through a referral, if required) when you experience any of the following problems:
Excess earwax buildup that interferes with hearing
Decreased hearing abilities, whether mild or severe, gradual or sudden
What makes an audiologist the right professional for me?
Audiologists have extensive educational and clinical requirements when pursuing their certification. This hearing professional is generally the right person to address your hearing issues because of their wide base of knowledge and specialties. Many individuals visit an audiologist to have a baseline hearing exam performed and to establish where their hearing health currently is and whether it’s beginning to deteriorate.
