Why choose an audiologist for hearing health care?
An audiologist is a doctoral-level or masters-level health professional who specializes in the identification, evaluation, rehabilitation, and prevention of hearing impairment and balance disorders. Audiologists are licensed, have passed a national standardized exam, and have completed clinical internships. An audiologist with pediatric expertise should be the only hearing professional evaluating and fitting hearing aids for children.
