What is the difference between an Audiologist and a "hearing instrument specialist"?
To best answer this question, it’s important to understand the role of your Audiologist and ENT Specialist.
In many cases, hearing aids are not the answer to hearing loss. With a complete medical workup, we can develop a clear picture of a patient's needs and provide the best medical care for each individual person -- not a single one-siMemorial Village Sinus and Hearing provides a complete end-to-end health care approach, specializing in patient needs rather than a sales-based business model. In partnership with Dr. McCutcheon, hearing health treatment plans are developed based on the entire medical picture each patient presents. A holistic medical treatment plan (usually covered by insurance) can only be provided by the partnership of an Audiologist and Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. This includes diagnostic hearing evaluation, medical evaluation, diagnosis of the cause of the hearing loss, any necessary medical treatment, hearing aid selection and fitting, hearing aid follow-up care, and long-term treatment plans including rehabilitation and patient counseling.
