This is a very important question. Audiologists can specialize in many different problems from hearing aids, to balance problems, to educational audiology, and on the job noise exposure. At Audiology Center Northwest, we specialize in hearing loss, hearing aids, and auditory processing disorder.
Do you hear best if people are facing you? Do you feel like people mumble? Do you have significant difficulty understanding speech in background noise? Do you always hear people talking, but often find that you can’t understand? If so you are at high risk of having a partial hearing loss and should have a hearing evaluation as soon as possible to find out what your treatment options are.
