Hearing aid dispensers (HADs) are fully licensed experts who test hearing and provide aftercare for hearing aids. Hearing aid dispensers must be qualified and apply for a license in order to use hearing technology. Audiologists can assess and diagnose a larger range of hearing and balance problems. An audiologist may be more suited for more medically related services such as balance issues, earwax impactions, and noise-induced hearing loss. Both professionals may do hearing aid maintenance, cleaning, and repairs, as well as fitting and adjusting.
If you think that you or a family member may be exhibiting any of the symptoms above, give us a visit at Atlantic Hearing Care Massachusetts and have your hearing checked by a professional.
