Why Choose an Audiologist?
The best person to see for a hearing problem is an audiologist. Audiologists are licensed practitioners who hold either a doctoral or other advanced degree and are qualified to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate patients with hearing loss. At Tucson Ear, Nose & Throat, our team of audiologists and physicians proudly work together to provide comprehensive ear care, hearing testing and hearing aids.
Tucson ENT was established in 1987 by a core group of the community’s outstanding otolaryngologists. Our dynamic practice has evolved and flourished, and now employs nine exceptional physicians, four audiologists and more than 40 additional staff members in two convenient locations. Just as our practice has board certified physicians that provide comprehensive treatment for all areas of ear, nose and throat care, our audiologists have unique skills and interests that allow our practice to meet the diverse needs of individuals seeking care for their hearing and balance problems.
Our certified audiologists are available to perform a full range of diagnostic audiological services for patients of all ages. In addition to standard hearing testing, we offer special examinations of hearing and balance including videonystagmography (VNG), electrocochleography (ECog), auditory brainstem response (ABR) evaluations and otoacoustic emissions (OAE) tests. These specialized tests allow our clinicians to assess patients who cannot typically be tested with standard evaluation techniques.
