What Is The Role Of An Audiologist?

The audiologist's role is both clinical and counseling. Your audiologist will conduct a number of tests to evaluate your hearing and determine if your hearing loss can be addressed with hearing instruments.

You will talk about your lifestyle; if you work or go to school, how you spend your leisure time and many other considerations to help determine the best hearing devices for your needs. Your audiologist may also provide counseling to your family members to show them how to communicate more effectively with you.

Choosing Your Hearing Instruments

Your audiologist will then test how well different hearing aids work for you. Several hearing instruments or several different settings on one hearing instrument may be evaluated to see which hearing instrument(s) are best for you. You may also look at different shapes and styles of hearing instruments.

Your audiologist will show you how to care for your hearing instruments and, if applicable, how to adjust them to your different hearing environments. Consumers who purchase hearing instruments in the state of New York have a 45 day trial period, giving you time to get accustomed to the the hearing instruments. This time period also gives the audiologist an opportunity to fine tune the hearing instruments as needed.
