3 Reasons to Choose An Audiologist

If you or a loved one are having problems with your hearing and want to make a change, you will find that there are many options available to you. You may be new to the world of hearing health, and all of these options can seem daunting or confusing.

Here, at Selective Hearing, we believe that audiology is the safest, wisest route to choose for pretty much anyone. The question is, why should you choose an Audiologist like us? There are 3 main reasons.


1. Access to specialist experience and knowledge

Your overall health is number one, why should your hearing health be any different? It is important to know the expertise of your healthcare professional before they treat you.

An Audiologist is like a doctor of hearing. Every qualified Audiologist has to study a 4-year medical degree, which allows them to diagnose, treat and monitor disorders of the hearing and balance system.  This degree includes 350 hours of real patient care and 12 months of full time supervised clinical practice.  You can relax and feel assured that they will have both extensive theoretical knowledge and clinical practice in the area you need.


2. Aftercare

Like anything else, your hearing requires long-term, ongoing care. Your health situation or lifestyle might change, and there may be adjustments to be made. An Audiologist provides comprehensive aftercare to make sure your hearing treatment is going as well as possible. We will check your device is working properly and ensure you are getting the best out of them, plus answer any questions that might come up when you’ve used them for a while.

We also stay ahead of the curve with the latest technology, so if you’re looking for an upgrade, we will be able to tell you all about new devices and their features.


3. Value for money

Remember, you are receiving far more than a hearing aid when you visit an Audiologist.  As well as the above aftercare, you also get professional fitting, personalized hearing care advice, support and counselling or advice for loved ones, all as a standard part of the comprehensive service.

So, when you make the wise decision to take the next steps to improve your hearing health, consider these three great reasons to choose an Audiologist.
