Our Team

The Division of Audiology - Head and Neck Surgery

Audiologists 

The Division of Audiology provides services to a wide variety of patients, ranging from newborn babies to elderly adults. Audiologists perform a number of diagnostic tests in our state-of-the-art clinic. Testing ranges from basic hearing tests that require the patient to raise their hand in response to sounds to more advanced testing which uses computer generated signals to elicit responses in the brainstem (ABR). We also provide testing for those who are suspected of having auditory processing disorders. Audiologists are also principal providers of diagnostic testing for patients with dizziness and balance problems. Outside of the clinic, you may find audiologists in the operating room performing ABR on those children who are difficult to test or assisting surgeons during intricate surgeries by monitoring the cranial nerves.

In addition to diagnostic testing, providing information and helping patients with strategies for coping with hearing loss, audiologists also fit patients with hearing aids. We offer the latest in digital hearing aid technology and offer a variety of sizes and options. We also fit special earplugs for musicians, dentists or workers who need sound reduction or protection from noise exposure. Water resistant earmolds are also made at our clinic for those who have tubes in their ears or who are prone to swimmer's ear. Finally, we offer consultation on the use of assistive listening devices.
