Dr. Brianne - Camellia ENT

What is a Doctor of Audiology?

A Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) is a professional degree for an audiologist. The Au.D. is an audiologist who is skilled in providing diagnostic, rehabilitative, and other services associated with hearing, hearing loss treatment, balance, tinnitus management, and related audiological fields.

Why Choose an Audiologist?

Audiologists are university-trained healthcare professionals. In fact, they are the only experts who are licensed to identify, evaluate, diagnose and treat hearing disorders. On the basis of their medical education, extensive training and best practices skill set, they are the most qualified to assess hearing loss.

Audiologists and ENT Specialists often work together. An ENT will address any treatable causes of hearing loss or tinnitus. To be fit with hearing aids, however, a patient will generally be referred to an audiologist. Similarly, if an audiologist suspects an illness or disorder is causing hearing issues, they’ll refer a patient to an ENT.

Our personalized process includes fitting verification, expert programming, detailed usage guidance and practical counseling on an ongoing basis. We are deeply committed to providing caring professional service for you and your loved ones. Please accept our sincere thanks for the opportunity to be of service.

What can we offer?

Camellia Audiology offers comprehensive hearing evaluations for adults and pediatrics including:

  • Impedance Testing: Tympanometry & Acoustic Reflex testing are important in measuring middle ear function. It can diagnose several problems such as fluid in the middle ear, negative middle ear pressure, disruption of the middle ear bones, and perforation of the eardrum.
  • Hearing Test: Hearing is measured by determining the softest sound a person can hear by using a range of low to high frequencies. The audiologist will then determine your ability to both hear and understand conversations by measuring the softest sound that your ear can detect and how clearly you comprehend spoken words.
  • Otoacoustic Emissions: This test uses a probe placed in the ear canal to measure the function of the outer hair cells in the cochlea by measuring nearly inaudible sounds created by your inner ear in response to external noises. If these sounds are not produced, it can be a sign that you have hearing loss.
  • Tinnitus Evaluation and Treatment: Tinnitus is perceived differently by each person; therefore, the tinnitus is measured by determining the specific loudness, pitch, and minimum masking levels that they experience for each ear.

We also offer services that include hearing aid selection and fitting of the latest technology from major hearing aid manufacturers as well as custom and non-custom hearing protection devices.
