What is an audiologist? |

An audiologist is a professional who diagnoses, treats, and manages individuals with hearing loss or balance problems. The audiologists at Cornerstone Ear, Nose, and Throat have earned a doctor of Audiology degree (Au.D.). They have completed extensive academic and clinical training in the field and are licensed through the state of North Carolina. Our audiologists’ training provides the foundation for managing patients of all ages. They counsel families though a new diagnosis of hearing loss in infants, and help teach coping and compensation skills to hearing impaired children and adults. They dispense and fit hearing aids as part of a comprehensive rehabilitative program. As a primary hearing health provider, audiologists refer patients to our ear, nose and throat physicians when the hearing or balance problem requires medical or surgical evaluation or treatment.
