Audiologist vs. Hearing Instrument Specialist
The primary differences between an audiologist and a hearing instrument specialist are their level of training and scope of practice. Audiologists have either a master’s degree or doctorate in the field of audiology (a total of 6 – 8 years of higher education) along with an extensive amount of training in matters relating to the ear. By contrast, hearing instrument specialists primarily have on-the-job training in a less formal setting.
The scope of practice is another consideration, for while both professions work with hearing aids, audiologists have a significantly larger wealth of knowledge. Dispensers are trained strictly in hearing evaluations for the purpose of fitting hearing aids, while audiologists are trained for full diagnostic evaluations of the patient’s entire auditory system, from the outer ear to the brain.
Rebranded Hearing Aids
Locally Owned & Operated vs. Franchises
- Are you an audiologist or a hearing instrument specialist?
- How many years of experience do you have?
- Do you sell multiple brands of hearing aids?
- Are your hearing aids “locked” or can another local office make programming changes to them?
- Are your hearing aids labeled with the major manufacturer’s names?
- Do you schedule aftercare appointments for as long as I own the hearing aids?
- Is the business locally owned and operated and decisions made at the local level?
Finest audiologist in Sierra Vista. Have been dealing with this company for over fifteen years. First my father and secondly my mother and now myself. Still servicing my 101 year old mother’s hearing aids. No high pressure sales, just a free audio exam and detailed discussion of results and what they mean. They market many different brands of hearing aids and can compare the different types as to which one best meet your needs. Many different pricing options to fit your budget. One thing to look for when purchasing hearing aids is to make sure that the manufacturer does not have proprietary programming software. I ran into this difficulty with my father as well as my mother. The representative of their manufacturer closed up and moved out of town. Their hearing aid software was proprietary and no other audiologist in town could adjust them. We were forced to drive to Tucson and find a representative who could do that. Quite an inconvenience. I had a hearing evaluation today, 15 June 18, and when given options as to what type would best meet my budget and requirements I asked about the proprietary software issue that I had run into with my parents. I was assured that all six manufacturers that they carried did not have proprietary software. If you move away, you can still have a better choice of audiologists for adjustments. I took the time to discuss this issue as I encountered it with both my mother and father!
