Audiology is the study of hearing, balance, and their related disorders. It combines medical science with technology to diagnose and treat people of all ages who have a hearing loss or related problems involving balance.
Audiologists help patients manage their hearing, providing services and rehabilitation to improve social and personal interactions with the world of sound surrounding us. They offer services to treat tinnitus, balance disorders, and ear wax removal. They also prescribe and fit hearing aids, helping patients weigh their options concerning technical assistance with hearing disorders.
