Frequently Asked Question

What Is An Audiologist?
Audiologists are the primary health-care professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and manage hearing loss and balance disorders in adults and children. Most audiologists have earned a doctor of audiology (Au.D.) degree and all audiologists must be licensed to practice in the state of Michigan. For patients experiencing hearing loss, an audiologist is the most qualified professional to treat their condition. No other professional has the education, skills, and training of an audiologist, and few are able to provide the level of follow-up care necessary to ensure the ongoing success of patients with hearing loss.
