Meet Our Team
An audiologist holds a master's degree or certification from an accredited university and has received specialized training in the prevention, identification and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders. Audiologists are required to complete a full-time internship and to pass a national competency examination by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association for Certification. With a graduate-level education and professional certificate and license, an audiologist is the most qualified professional to perform hearing tests, refer patients for medical treatment and provide rehabilitation services such as hearing instruments.
