Audiology Care for Your Unique Needs

Audiologists are specialized doctors who diagnose, treat, and prevent hearing and balance disorders for patients of all ages. It is recommended that patients 50 and over visit an audiologist for a hearing evaluation approximately once every three years. However, emergent symptoms at any age may require a visit to your friendly South Florida ENT Associates for quick, accurate diagnosis and personalized, effective treatment.

When To Seek the Care of an Audiologist

Outside of regular hearing health maintenance, it is important to make an appointment to see your audiologist as soon as possible if you or a loved one are experiencing:

  • New or worsening symptoms of hearing loss 
  • Unexplained ear pain
  • A persistent ringing in the ears – a condition called tinnitus
  • Symptoms of vertigo, dizziness, or other balance problems

Audiology is a rapidly developing field. Your South Florida ENT Associates audiologists prioritizes matching you with the cutting-edge of hearing aid technology, outpatient procedures, and more to help you meet your unique hearing health goals. 

Get to Know the Signs of Hearing Loss

  • Do you turn up the volume on the TV, radio, or stereo high enough that others are uncomfortable?
  • Do you find it difficult to hear or follow conversations in loud or crowded places?
  • Do you ask others to repeat themselves repeatedly?
  • Do you find yourself raising your voice without noticing until you’re almost shouting? 

If you answered, “yes” to one or all of these questions, you may be experiencing symptoms of hearing loss. The audiologists at South Florida ENT Associates can help. Give us a call today to schedule a hearing evaluation and start your road to recovery with an accurate diagnosis and customized treatment plan. 

Hearing Evaluation Tests and Procedures

Your audiologist will always match your treatment plan to your individual lifestyle and goals, but there are a few tests and procedures you will likely undergo during your initial hearing evaluation. These quick, painless tests and procedures help your doctor gain a clear picture of your current hearing ability and develop your treatment plan. 

Potential procedures include:

  • Otoscopy, when the doctor checks your ear canal for obstructions.
  • Pure Tone, a test to measure hearing levels in each ear.
  • Speech Discrimination, a test of your ability to hear speech.
  • Bone Conduction, a measurement of how your inner ears respond to sound.
  • Tympanometry, a test to measure the movement of your eardrums.
