What Is an Audiologist?

A Doctor of Audiology

Audiologists are health care professionals who provide patient-centered care in the prevention, identification, diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment of hearing, balance, and other auditory disorders for people of all ages. 

Audiologists provide professional and personalized services to minimize the negative impact of these disorders, leading to improved outcomes and quality of life.  Our audiologists have received an Au.D. degree (doctorate in audiology) from accredited universities with additional credentialing in the state of California.  Our audiologists specialize in the following services:

  • Diagnostic hearing examinations

  • Fitting, adjustment, and maintenance of hearing aids
  • Real-ear measurements and hearing aid validation
  • Perform assessment and nonmedical management of tinnitus
  • Aural rehabilitation and communication strategies to improve overall quality of life
