What is an Audiologist?
People with hearing loss can be assessed, treated and rehabilitated by an audiologist. Audiologists are healthcare professionals who provide patient-centered care focusing on the prevention, identification, diagnosis and treatment of hearing and auditory disorders of their patients. Hearing and balance disorders are extremely complex with medical, psychological and physical implications. Audiologists are required to be educated to provide treatment services and have knowledge of a large array of existing and emerging technologies, as well as interpersonal skills to counsel and guide patients and their family through the rehabilitative process of learning to live with hearing loss. To minimize the negative impact of any hearing loss disorder, Audiologists provide professional and personalized services which lead their patients to dramatically improved outcomes and quality of life. Audiologists are licensed and regulated in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. www.asha.orgwww.osha.org
What happens if I wait?
Most people will see an optometrist or get glasses as soon as they have difficulty seeing. But, for some reason, when hearing becomes a challenge, many people ignore or delay doing anything about it, rather than take corrective action.
