What Audiologists check for

What does an audiologist do?

Audiologists (Doctor of Audiology) determine appropriate patient treatment of hearing and balance problems by combining a complete history with a variety of specialized auditory and vestibular assessments. The objective of a modern Audiology facility is to provide a complete service to their patients. As such, our Audiologists also dispense and fit hearing aids. Audiologists may be found working in medical centers and hospitals, private practice settings, schools, government health facilities and agencies. They also work as instructors in Audiology, Speech Pathology and Medical schools in colleges and universities. As a primary hearing health provider, Audiologists are trained to recognize abnormalities in the auditory and vestibular systems. As such they are qualified to refer patients to physicians, specialists and various other healthcare providers. They also provide their expertise to industry and government suggesting ways to minimize the impact of noise on people’s hearing. Audiologists engage in research in hearing science, and the habilitation and rehabilitation of individuals with hearing problems and are involved in the clinical education of students.
