Audiologists are licensed health care professionals who care for veterans and service members through the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of hearing disorders that include hearing loss, balance impairment, and tinnitus. Audiologists counsel patients and families regarding good hearing health practices and advise them on appropriate management strategies.
Audiologists utilize comprehensive diagnostic audiology tests to assess the hearing of Veterans Health Administration (VHA) audiology patients. If, upon review of these test results, a hearing loss is determined to be present, the audiologist will discuss with the patient the best treatment options. VHA Audiology has access to the most current, state-of-the-art technologies, including hearing aids, personal amplifiers, assistive technologies, and cochlear implants.
