WHAT IS AN AUDIOLOGIST?

Headphones and Otoscope

Audiologists are the primary health-care professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat and manage hearing loss and balance disorders in adults and children.

AUDIOLOGISTS:

  • Prescribe, fit and dispense hearing aids and other amplification and hearing assistance technologies
  • Are members of cochlear implant teams
  • Perform ear or hearing-related surgical monitoring
  • Design and implement hearing conservation programs
  • Design and implement newborn hearing screening programs
  • Provide hearing rehabilitation training such as auditory training and listening skills improvement
  • Assess and treat individuals, especially children, with central auditory processing disorders
  • Assess and treat individuals with tinnitus (noise in the ear, such as ringing)
  • Audiologists treat all ages and types of hearing loss: the elderly, adults, teens, children, and infants.

Almost all types of hearing loss are treatable by an audiologist.  Most hearing is caused by nerve damage and is treated by an audiologist with hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and hearing rehabilitation.

At Orland Hearing Aid Center we have the only private practice audiologist in the area.  If you or someone you care about is experiencing hearing difficulties or perceiving unwanted sounds, please call us at 708-448-1234 to learn about your treatment options.
