An audiologist is a healthcare professional uniquely qualified to evaluate and treat disorders of the auditory and balance system in infants through adults. The current standard of education is the Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree which involves an average of eight years of education plus clinical training. Audiologists must also meet their state’s licensure requirements to practice clinical audiology. By virtue of their education, training, and licensing, they are the most qualified professionals to assess and treat hearing disorders.
It is important to realize that hearing aids are only part of the solution for hearing difficulties. Our Doctors of Audiology will create an individual treatment plan including fitting verification, individual counseling, careful instruction, and detailed follow up appointments.
Our audiologists on staff are also trained to assess and treat balance system dysfunction, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), hyperacusis (intolerance to loud sounds), and are all very passionate about hearing conservation.
Our goal at Freedom Hearing Center is to listen to your concerns about your hearing and balance and create a comprehensive plan that fits your needs. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that many other hearing health professionals don’t offer, because we want to diagnose your hearing loss as thoroughly as possible.
Since every patient is different, we take the time to educate everyone that walks through our doors. We want you to feel empowered when it comes time to decide the hearing solution that’s right for you. Our professionals at Freedom Hearing Center know that your trust is important, and we want our credentials and experience to translate into a relationship that you can count on.
