Common Questions

Can you self-refer to an audiologist?

You can self-refer to an audiologist if you are ready to pay for audiology treatments out of pocket. If you self-refer, there is no need to contact a doctor. Often, you must first obtain a doctor’s referral before you may use your insurance for testing and other related fees.

Do you need a doctor's referral for a hearing test?

You can choose to have your hearing evaluated without a recommendation from your doctor. Most insurance companies, including Medicare, will allow you to bill insurance for hearing tests without a referral for diagnostic purposes. You should get a referral from a doctor if you are obtaining a hearing evaluation due to vertigo or sudden hearing loss.

How do you select the best hearing aid?

We suggest you start by selecting a hearing healthcare expert you trust to guide you through the process.  Our Doctors of Audiology use evidence-based practice with standard hearing tests, plus specialized testing for hearing in noise and cognitive testing to help make the best recommendation for your needs.  Hearing aids are available in different sizes, models, levels of technology and designs. When choosing a hearing aid, the first thing you need to consider is the type and degree of hearing loss you have.

How do you get rid of tinnitus sounds?

Tinnitus is usually most noticeable in quiet settings. Over 50 million Americans report some degree of tinnitus. To most, it is non-bothersome. Although there is no cure, MOST of the time, certain types of tinnitus can be mitigated by treating the underlying solution. If you have tinnitus, you should have a diagnostic hearing evaluation to ensure it is benign. To combat bothersome tinnitus, a white noise machine, soft music or low-volume radio static may be used to mask the tinnitus noise. Tinnitus with hearing loss may be managed with hearing aids that have built-in tinnitus maskers. Tinnitus is often negatively impacted by stress. Use stress reducing activities to help reduce the negative effects of tinnitus.

Is a hearing aid specialist or hearing aid dispenser the same as an audiologist?

It can be easy to become confused about which type of expert you are visiting. There are, however, some significant variations between the education level and what these three professions can achieve for you. A hearing aid expert can test your hearing and equip you with a hearing aid. A hearing aid dispenser does training to work with hearing equipment and state depending, will get hours working under a qualified Audiologist in order to apply for their license. An audiologist, on the other hand, must get both an undergraduate and doctoral degree in audiology. They have an extensive supervised externship before the professional may test for their national certification and state licensing. Audiologists are more specialized. Therefore, they can evaluate and diagnose a broader spectrum of hearing, tinnitus, and balance issues.
