Audiology

Juris Medicus has a licensed audiologist who has been awarded a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

 

Audiologists identify and diagnose auditory and inner ear problems including general hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and balance disorders that can result in vertigo, dizziness, and disequilibrium.

The management of these problems in everyday life is the focus of an audiologist. The treatment of the diseases and other issues underlying hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance disorders is the specialty of an otologist, who must go through medical school, residency, and a neurotology fellowship to practice. A four-year doctoral degree in audiology (Au.D.) is required to become a licensed audiologist. This specialist can fit and distribute hearing aids or other assistive listening devices, offer aural and speech rehabilitation and balance therapy, educate patients about hearing loss and its prevention, and advise patients on the use of technological resources to manage the effects of hearing loss.
