Why Should Someone With Hearing Loss Be Evaluated By An Audiologist?

Audiologists hold masters or doctoral degrees from accredited universities with special training in the prevention, identification, assessment and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders.  Audiologists are required to complete a full-time internship and pass a demanding national competency examination.  By virtue of their graduate education, professional certification and licensure, audiologists are the most qualified professionals to perform hearing tests, refer patients for medical treatment, recommend and dispense hearing aids, and provide hearing rehabilitation services.
