What is an Audiologist?

An audiologist is an individual who evaluates, diagnoses, treats and manages hearing loss and balance disorders. The majority of hearing loss and balance disorders cannot be treated with medicines or surgery but can be treated by an Audiologist. Types of treatment can include hearing rehabilitation such as counseling, education, auditory training, hearing aids and assistive listening devices and vestibular rehabilitation for balance disorders. Audiologists receive extensive education in hearing and balance disorders earning the doctoral degree designated by the initials Au.D. Doctors Keeter and Mize use an evidenced based protocol to correctly diagnose and treat hearing and vestibular disorders to ensure the patient receives the highest level of care.
