Why Choose an Audiologist

Audiologists are licensed health professionals with a Master’s Degree (M.S or M.A) or Doctoral Degree (Au.D) from an accredited university. Audiologists are specialty trained in the prevention, identification, assessment and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders.

Audiologists can identify a wide variety of pathology and underlying medical conditions of the hearing and balance systems and understand when it is appropriate to refer for further medical treatment.

The California Department of Consumer Affairs Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology Board & Hearing Aid Dispensers Board defines the practice of audiology as the application of principles, methods and procedures of measurement, testing appraisal, prediction, consultation, counseling, rehabilitation instruction related to disorders of hearing and balance systems, hearing conservation, hearing aid recommendation and evaluation, relating to hearing loss.

Expectations and Outcomes

It is important to realize that we hear with our brain. Our outer ear, middle ear and inner ear system are pathways that bring sound to our brain for interpretation. Hearing devices make sounds easier to hear, but it is important to have realistic expectations. Successful use of hearing devices rely on realistic expectations. Some people are able to adapt easily to hearing aids while others take longer. Your audiologist will work closely with you on this to guide you and help you during this process. It is important to wear your hearing device daily to get accustomed to new sounds and retrain your brain to hear sounds around you.
