Finding an Audiologist

Do you know how to find an audiologist to test your hearing or help you choose a hearing aid?

If you’re unsure — or shaking your head no — you’re not alone. So what should you do? Here are four suggestions:

  • Contact the ear, nose and throat department of your nearest university medical center and ask if it has a list of audiologists in your area.
  • Go to the website of the American Academy of Audiology and search “find an audiologist.”
  • Contact the closest chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America and ask if it has a list of audiologists in your area.
  • Ask a friend who wears hearing aids for a recommendation.

How To Choose The Best Audiologist:

  • Ask for a referral.
  • Check if your insurance covers hearing tests.
  • Consider a business with history.
  • Read patient reviews.
  • Expect outstanding service.
