What is an Audiologist?

Audiologists, identify hearing and balance disorders, provide rehabilitative services, assess amplification devices and instruct patients in their care. 

A Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) is an independent professional who specializes in diagnosing, managing, and treating hearing- and balance-related disorders. Audiologists treat patients from birth through adulthood.

What is Hearing Loss?

Conductive Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is conductive when there is a problem with the ear canal, the eardrum and/or the three bones connected to the eardrum. Common reasons for this type of hearing loss are a plug of excess wax in the ear canal or fluid behind the eardrum. Medical treatment or surgery may be available for these and more complex forms of conductive hearing loss.

Sensorinural Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is sensorineural when it results from damage to the inner ear (cochlea) or auditory nerve, often as a result of the aging process and/or noise exposure. Sounds may be unclear and/or too soft. Sensitivity to loud sounds may occur. Medical or surgical intervention cannot correct most sensorineural hearing losses. However, hearing aids may help you reclaim some sounds that you are missing as a result of nerve deafness.

What is "Dizziness"?

Dizziness is a term often used by patients to relate a disturbance in their equilibrium. The term is very general and can include a wide array of symptoms such as fatigue, visual disturbance, lightheadedness, confusion, vertigo, and many others. 

It is often difficult for the patient to adequately describe the symptoms. One of the goals of the physician specializing in dizziness is to gain an understanding as to what type of “dizziness” the patient has been experiencing.
