Who Are Private Practice Audiologists

Private practice audiologists are in the trenches fitting various levels of technology to people from every walk of life. Unlike manufacturers or researchers, they see the results of what works and doesn’t work firsthand as their patients live with hearing loss and the day-to-day struggles. They have to stay up-to-date on treatment options for their patients.

They are answerable to their patients not to a manufacturer, investors or grant funding.

Doctors of Audiology are the only experts that are university trained to not only understand the auditory system but how hearing aid technology impacts audition and how every individual’s hearing loss is unique like a thumbprint. There is no one size fits all solution. From otoscopy, where wax could be the cause, to how the brain processes auditory information, these are the experts you want to HEAR from.
