    Thanks for putting together some tips for choosing the right audiologist. You make a good point about how, aside from great credentials, it is best to choose someone who treats you with respect and makes you feel comfortable. I have been having some trouble with my hearing lately, so it seems like a good idea for me to ask around for some reputable audiologists to consider.

    It’s good to know that I should be looking for a medical professional who has a Doctorate or a Masters of Audiology. I think that will really help me narrow down my options that I currently have. My general practitioner gave me a list of audiologists in my area, but there are a ton!

    I appreciate your tip on looking for an audiologist with a great reputation. I would imagine that a company that has good patient testimonials would be someone who would do a good job. We think our son may have some hearing issues so when we take him to an audiologist we’ll have to find someone with a good reputation.

    I have a close relative that his hard of hearing, and she is taken great care of by her audiologist. I really like what was said about how it is important to have an audiologist that will take the time to learn about your hearing needs, and even about your family! This is great because hearing loss affects not only the individual, but the individual’s family!

    Thanks for pointing out that you are actually hearing with your brain and not your ears. You also mention that your hearing should be properly programmed and adjusted by a license. I think it’s a good idea to choose an audiologist that has been referred by your trusted friends and family.

    That’s a good tip to check if the audiologist has the right training. It takes a lot of education to be a hearing doctor. I’m a musician and as I get older I think I’m going to have to find an audiologist to visit regularly.

    You said that audiologists are educated and specifically trained. If I was going to find an audiologist I would want to make sure that they had the proper training. I’ll need to do some research so that I can find the right professional for my needs.

    I like that you mentioned finding a person that is passionate about what they do and helping others. Your hearing has an incredible effect on your overall health so you want someone who cares. We are moving to a new area and will need to be finding a new audiologist. I will be sure and visit them personally before hiring.

    I didn’t realize that there were so many credentials and training that an audiologist needs to have in order to be an expert. Do all practicing audiologists require the same credentials regardless of what state or locality they practice out of? I’d be curious to know since I want to take my mother-in-law in for a hearing test.

    A good friend of mine was considering finding some audiology services. This way, he could get the desired help that he has been looking for in this medical field. I will be sure that he looks for someone that can provide clinical counseling and that is highly educated.
