What Do Audiologists Do?

An audiologist is a credentialed healthcare professional who specializes in evaluating, identifying, and diagnosing hearing and balance disorders. Hearing impairment affects more than just the ability to hear – it impacts quality of life. Wabash General Hospital Audiology Clinic stresses the importance of accurate, timely hearing tests. The hearing evaluation is only the beginning of your treatment, and it’s essential to setting your unique care plan in motion and taking action on hearing loss. Together, we can create a community of healthier, happier patients.
