What is an audiologist?
An audiologist is a professional trained in the evaluation and treatment of hearing and balance disorders. This training is received at a college or university, and an audiologist has a master's or doctorate degree in audiology. Additionally, an audiologist has a state audiology license and is certified by the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and/or the American Academy of Audiology (AAA). An audiologist cannot perform surgery, prescribe medications, or treat physical injuries to your ear, however, most hearing problems are not medically or surgically correctable, and the audiologist is the best qualified professional to diagnose your problem and recommend the best treatment solution. If a medically treatable condition is identified, the audiologist will work together with your doctor, or refer you to another specialist.
