Learn More About Audiology

Audiologists are doctors who specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating hearing and balance problems in patients of all ages. It is recommended that patients over 50 undergo hearing evaluations by one of our audiologists in West Palm Beach, FL, every three years, but audiology care can be valuable and necessary at any age.

When To See Your Audiologist

An audiologist should be your first call if you a loved one is experiencing: 

  • New or worsening symptoms of hearing loss
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Unexplained ear pain
  • Dizziness, vertigo, and other balance problem symptoms

Schedule your appointment with your South Florida ENT Associates audiologist to get a quick and accurate diagnosis as well as a treatment solution that fits your lifestyle.

Are You Experiencing Signs of Hearing Loss?

  • Do you find it difficult to hear or follow conversations in loud, crowded places like bars or restaurants?
  • Do you often need to ask others to repeat themselves?
  • Do you sometimes turn the volume on the TV, radio, or stereo up high enough that others are uncomfortable or even need to leave the room?
  • Do you find yourself raising your voice during conversation without noticing until you’re almost shouting? 

If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions, a hearing evaluation with your trusted audiologist should be scheduled as soon as possible. 

Hearing loss can be isolating and emotionally upsetting, but the sooner you start working with your audiologist on personalized solutions, the sooner you can get back to hearing life’s most important sounds clearly.
