What is an Audiologist?

An audiologist is a professional who specializes in the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of hearing and balance disorders. They have to complete an internship, pass a national competency examination and obtain professional certification and licensure in the state(s) where they practice.

Why is Having an ENT on Site Important?

The best case scenario when choosing where to purchase a hearing aid is to visit an office where a Fellowship trained and Board Certified Otolaryngologist (ENT) works in conjunction with a Board Certified audiologist. If your hearing loss presents with an underlying medical condition, the ENT can work with your audiologist to treat your condition.  And, if issues arise once you are fit with hearing aids the ENT will be available to provide any necessary medical intervention.

“I’ve been going to Advanced Audiology Concepts for several years now and have learned a lot. Moving to Mentor from Akron area I was looking for a place closer to home when I met Dr. Jane Kukula. She is devoted to helping people hear better and so is the staff and Ashley Spisak, AuD (newest member of the team). They service hearing instruments, provide loaners, have customer appreciation days and birthday surprises. Last year I got pretty sick which included hearing impairment, desperate my husband took me to Dr. Jane who told him to take me to the emergency room. She was great help. Thank You.”
