Have you been having difficulty hearing? Are you having problems with your ears? We understand how challenging life can be if you can’t actively participate in conversations and social gatherings. With advancements in medical treatment and hearing aid technology, your problem can be treated effectively. It can be difficult to know whether a visit to a local audiologist or an ENT for treatment is appropriate.
What is the Difference?
ENTs (Otolaryngologists) treat medical problems related to your ears, nose, and throat. Ear Nose and Throat physicians treat ear infections and medical causes of hearing loss that require surgery or medication.
Local audiologists or hearing doctors specialize in the treatment of non-medical hearing loss, tinnitus, and other hearing conditions. Audiologists diagnose and treat hearing loss with hearing aids and rehabilitation. They also provide custom hearing protection to prevent hearing loss and local audiologists can work with you to minimize hearing loss due to noise exposure.
