An audiologist is a healthcare professional who specializes in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of hearing and balance disorders. The audiologist detects hearing loss, assesses the extent of the loss and determines the best rehabilitation of that loss. Audiologists counsel patients on the use and care of hearing aids and other assistive devices. In addition, they work with physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of balance disorders.
At Midwest Ear, Nose & Throat Hearing Center, our audiologists are fully licensed and highly educated. They are able to provide hearing evaluations for patients from birth through the geriatric years. Each patient comes to us with unique needs and is treated individually. Appropriate diagnosis by an audiologist supplements the Otolaryngologist in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient. Our office in Sioux Falls has all the state of the art technology to test, diagnose, & help those in need of hearing help, whether the issue be large or small.
