How Can an Audiologist Help?

 

Audiologists can help by:

  • Completing an audiologic assessment in addition to formal testing of the vestibular system (the system that organizes the senses that relay information about balance and motion to the brain)
  •  Working in conjunction with an ENT (otolaryngologist) to monitor and/or treat the symptoms of this disease
  • Prescribing a hearing aid if needed
