Audiologist Vs. Hearing Aid Specialist:

The Difference Matters
By Davis Family Hearing
Audiologist Vs. Hearing Aid SpecialistAn audiologist is a specialist in hearing and balance.  They have studied for many years and are required to have a doctorate degree in the field of hearing.  While they do not perform ear surgery, they are experts in diagnosing and finding solutions for children and adults that are experiencing hearing loss.
A hearing aid specialist is not required to have a degree, although many of them may have a degree in another field.  They do need to take a certification course, which is usually a few months long.  They are not experts in the area of hearing, but they are trained to sell  hearing aid devices for you.  If you need hearing aids, it’s always best to see an audiologist first, especially if you haven’t had your hearing tested in a while, as hearing level loss changes can occur fairly quickly.
Why you should see an Audiologist
If you are experiencing hearing loss, it’s important to seek a qualified audiologist, because they are trained to get you the best outcome and resolution for your specific issue.  If you’ve noticed that it’s difficult to hear conversations in a noisy atmosphere, or you feel the need to adjust your television volume much higher than before, it’s vital for you to have your hearing checked.
Perhaps you or your loved one keeps asking for people to repeat themselves, or you can’t quite pick up where sounds are coming from; if this is the case, don’t wait until your hearing loss gets any worse.  Schedule your appointment as soon as you possibly can.  From children to adults, Davis Family Hearing has a reputation that the community respects and trusts.
