Why choose an Audiologist?
All Audiologists are required to complete a full-time internship, pass a demanding national competency examination and be licensed by the state. By virtue of their advanced education, professional certification and licensure, audiologists are the most qualified professionals to perform hearing tests, refer patients for medical treatment, fit hearing instruments and provide hearing rehabilitation services.
