What does an Audiologist do?
Audiologists are trained to specialise in providing services in all non-medical facets of hearing healthcare including specialist diagnostic assessment for local General Practitioners, Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists, and other Allied Health Professionals.
Audiologists are trained to identify and interpret problems within the hearing and balance systems and provide appropriate rehabilitation, counselling and support services, including prescription and maintenance of hearing aids and assistive listening devices.
Our Audiologist is a full member of the Audiological Society of Australia (ASA) and undergoes continued professional development through the ASA and other professional bodies to keep up to date with the latest advancements in hearing technology and hearing/balance assessment procedures.
