Audiology & Hearing Aids

Audiology & Hearing Aids

We offer state of the art hearing testing and a variety of hearing aid options to suit specific patient populations.

What is Audiology?

Audiology is the branch of medicine and science that studies and manages our sense of hearing. At Mt. Scott ENT, our Audiology Department is staffed with well-trained audiologists who work closely with our physicians to provide the full range of diagnostic testing and hearing aid options for both adults and children.

Our audiologists evaluate, diagnose, treat and manage a variety of hearing and balance disorders and all hold either a Master’s or Doctoral degree in audiology. Those with symptoms of impaired hearing, ringing in the ears, dizziness or constant ear pressure, will often see one of our audiologists for testing to better identify the source of their issues.
