What Can Audiology Can Do for You

An audiologist is a specialized kind of doctor focused on the diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of hearing and balance disorders 

Hearing loss is most common in patients over 50. It is recommended that those patients should see an audiologist at least once every three years for a hearing evaluation. However, hearing problems and balance issues can happen at any age and it’s always a good time to take control of your hearing health with a visit to one of our audiologists in Weston, FL

Signs of Hearing Loss

  • Do you find yourself turning the volume on the TV, radio, or stereo up, up, and up until others are uncomfortable?
  • Do you find it difficult to follow conversations in loud or crowded places?
  • Do you need others to repeat themselves several times?
  • Do you sometimes raise your voice without noticing during conversations until you’re nearly shouting? 

Don’t delay! Remember, the sooner your audiologist can evaluate your hearing and make a diagnosis, the sooner you can get the right treatment and get back to living your life.

  • Speech Discrimination: This test helps the audiologist measure how well you can hear and understand spoken language.
  • Bone Conduction: This test measures the way your inner ears respond to sound.
  • Tympanometry: This test measures the movement of your eardrums.
