What services do you currently offer?
Chesapeake Hearing Centers offer a full range of audiological services, including hearing evaluations, tympanometry,
electronystagmography/videonystagmography, otoacoustic emissions testing, hearing aid assessment, fitting, and other services. However, one of our most important services is counseling our patients and their families on the implications of hearing loss and how best to communicate.
What is the difference between referring your patient to a doctor of audiology and referring them to an ear, nose, and throat doctor?
An ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor’s main focus is the physical properties of the ear. The ENT can diagnose and offer treatment options such as surgery or medication when appropriate. Doctors of audiology are licensed to evaluate hearing and other ear-related disorders, such as dizziness and tinnitus. The audiologist may provide the needed information to the ENT that allows them to decide what medical or surgical treatment option may be best. However, the audiologist can also evaluate where the hearing loss is coming from in the ear system and determine if amplification would be more appropriate. The audiologist is then the professional most qualified for assessing, fitting, and following up with the hearing aid candidate.
