Audiology

Adept Audiology

If you have a hearing or balance problem, you may be referred to a specialist for further testing or treatment. Should you see an Audiologist or an ENT Physician? Sometimes the answer is “both”.

We talked to Paige Holt, Doctor of Audiology with the Hearing Aid and Audiology Specialists at Lake Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery about the benefits of having audiology services and ENT specialists, all under one roof.

Kids’ Hearing Health

Hearing loss is typically a gradual process, and one that can have a major impact on how a child performs in school. Right now, one in five American teens suffer from some form of hearing loss, according to a study by the Journal of the American Medical Association. That’s about a 30 percent higher rate than in the 1980s and 1990s.

The Hearing Aid and Audiology Specialists at Lake Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery talked to us about some of the ways they can help improve a young person’s ability to hear.
