Since hearing problems can only be correctly treated when they’ve been accurately evaluated and diagnosed, it’s important to visit an experienced professional. Choosing an audiologist to care for your hearing means that you’re choosing someone with the most extensive education in hearing conditions and the proper treatment and management of them.
Audiologists earn an advanced degree in audiology (either a Master’s or Doctorate degree), and complete rigorous training and testing in order to become licensed to practice. They specialize in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of hearing and balance disorders, and when licensed by their state Board, they’re approved to dispense hearing aids and practice audiology with the best interest of their patients in mind.
Hearing aids are medical devices and must be recommended and prescribed by licensed and qualified professionals. Audiologists offer the highest level of expertise, and because of their lengthy training, audiologists are the only hearing professionals licensed to perform several hearing health services, such as earwax removal, and to get to the bottom of what is actually causing your hearing problems using thorough diagnostic testing.
Beyond their extensive training, these hearing healthcare professionals’ commitment to ethical practice is evident by the required oath they pledge to their vocation and must adhere to in order to maintain their license. This oath states that audiologists must always practice in the best interest of the patient and means that patients can always count on the advice and recommendations from an audiologist to be honest no matter what.
