You have a Russian speaking audiology specialist in your office. Tell us more about the role of the audiologist in diagnosing and treating hearing loss and choosing the best hearing aid.

When hearing loss is suspected the doctor will refer you to the audiologist for the comprehensive audiologic evaluation. The audiologist performs appropriate individualized onsite audiologic testing to assess the degree and type of hearing loss you have. If you are a candidate for amplification, an extensive hearing aid evaluation appointment is recommended to discuss your particular hearing difficulties and listening needs, as well as your lifestyle, manual dexterity, and your medical and audiological history. Styles, features, and levels of technology of hearing aids will be also discussed. The audiologist then will suggest specific hearing aids and accessories to address your complaints. With the hearing aid purchase you will get a service plan including trial period, manufacturer warranty, and audiology visits. By working with your audiologist, the hearing aids can be adjusted to perform most functions optimally and automatically according to your individual communication needs.

How often would you suggest people visit ear, nose and throat doctor? What are the common mistakes people make and how would you suggest they take care of their health?

One common mistake: people know they have difficulty hearing but do not mention it to their doctor. Early detection of hearing loss is very important in the treatment and rehabilitation process. Another common mistake is avoiding hearing aids when they have been recommended to you by the specialist. The longer your hearing loss goes untreated the more your brain suffers from auditory deprivation. Your brain gradually “forgets” how to hear, making successful amplification later more challenging. Auditory deprivation may also lead to cognitive decline. Don’t delay getting hearing aids! Remember to aid each ear that needs improvement in hearing for best hearing health.
