What Is an Audiology Doctor?
We have one of the top private audiology teams in the area. Our audiologists offer a lot of services. So, you may see them playing many different roles. No matter what they are doing, know that they are audiology doctors with the highest level of medical expertise. They specialize in issues related to hearing and balance. An audiologist will regularly perform tests, diagnose the causes of problems, and help fit you with a hearing aid. When you see an audiologist, they may perform any combination of these services depending on the situation. In most cases, you will see an audiologist after receiving a referral from a doctor, such as a primary care physician or ear, nose, and throat specialist.
Hearing Aids and Hearing Aid Specialists
When getting a hearing aid, you must ensure that you get the right technology and fit. Getting the right type of hearing aid will ensure that it corrects your specific hearing-related issue. Getting the right fit ensures that you can wear it for as long as you need without any discomfort. Ear, Nose, and Throat, Inc’s hearing aid specialists can help you find the right corrective device for your ears. The hearing aid specialists may also perform testing just to make sure your hearing aid works perfectly. There are four main styles of hearing aids which include:
- Behind the Ear (BTE)
- Receiver in the Canal (RIC)
- Extended Wear
- Custom Hearing Aids That Fit Completely in the Canal
How Audiologists and Hearing Aid Specialists Are Different
While audiologists and hearing aid specialists are both key members of your team here, they serve different roles. Your audiologist is a doctor who specializes in hearing. So, they can offer medical services like diagnosing issues, running specialized testing, and providing balance rehabilitation. On the other hand, a hearing aid specialist can help you with everything that involves your hearing aid. Sometimes that may include hearing tests and follow-up appointments. Our hearing aid center can help you with everything from hearing aid repairs to understanding the features of your device. It is essential to understand that our hearing aid specialists are not doctors, and because of that, they cannot offer medical advice and may need to defer to an audiologist in some cases.
