Tips for choosing the right Alaska Audiologist
Look For Professional Credentials
As you research different audiology practices and hearing aid businesses, you’ll find a variety of titles following a provider’s name.
“These titles can be confusing,” says Dr. McMahan, “But it’s important to understand what they represent.”
A Doctor of Audiology earns a doctorate in audiology from an accredited university. The audiologist’s title then becomes Au.D. or Doctor of Audiology. This degree represents the highest level of education an audiologist can receive. Dr. McMahan & Dr. Butler hold this degree.
You may also see M.S. or M.A. in a provider’s title. Audiologists with these titles have earned a master’s degree in audiology and have completed extensive academic and hands-on training.
