There are a lot of choices you need to make when it comes to your healthcare. Choosing the right insurance, tests, and people to work with are some of them. When you decide it’s time to take a hearing test, you need to choose an Audiologist. You don’t need to look far to find excellent support if you live near The Hearing Center of Dublin ENT, but how do you know what a good Audiologist should offer? Here we explore some of the qualities you can look for.


Look for experience

First off, check to see whether you are working with a fully-qualified Audiologist. There are people who provide hearing tests who have not had the same training. They need to have eight years or more of education to call themselves an Audiologist. If this is the case, it will say so on their website or literature.

It’s also worth digging a little deeper to check how long your chosen professional has been working in the field. Look at their story and see if they have a decade or two of experience to offer you. If so, you know you’ve found someone who is committed and enthusiastic about their work.



Personal recommendations are one of the best ways to find a great Audiologist. You might get this from a friend or from your physician. If neither of these is available, you can always check online testimonials to get a general view.


Check out the tech

Once you’ve had a hearing test, your Audiologist may recommend a hearing aid. You want to be able to choose from the latest in hearing aid technology. If they have a wide range on offer, you know you’ll be able to choose the best equipment for your circumstances.

For example, they might work with ReSound. This is a hearing aid brand that offers excellent sound quality, battery life, and streaming options. All these are key to having a great hearing aid experience. They ensure that your equipment supports your life.


Use your local clinic
