How Otolaryngologists and Audiologists Work Together For Your Ears. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY HUDSON VALLEY AUDIOLOGY

L

ike Laurel & Hardy, Abbott & Costello, and Kareem & Magic, Otolaryngologists & Audiologists are a match made in (ear) heaven. Otolaryngologists, known as ENTs, are medical doctors who specialize in ears, noses, and throats. ENTs diagnose, treat, perform surgery and prescribe medication for those areas of the body. Audiologists are clinical doctors of hearing and balance and evaluate hearing and balance problems, identify pathologies, and dispense hearing devices for individuals with hearing loss. Although both professions share similar knowledge about the ear, neither the ENT nor Audiologist can work independently and still fully treat a patient with an ear issue. Your main complaint may dictate which specialist to initially visit. Is it hearing loss? Ear pain? Pressure in your ears? Tinnitus? Dizziness? Regardless of the issue, if you see a reputable ENT or audiologist that has a good working relationship with the other profession, rest assured you’ll get top notch care. Because of this, Hudson Valley Audiology teamed up with ENT Faculty in early 2018. We’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded our care, by providing an all-in-one patient referral system, offering same day appointments (if available), and expanding both adult and pediatric services. ENT Faculty has a stellar reputation of patient care, both in Rockland and Westchester counties. They have brought wonderful medical care to our patients, and will continue servicing you for your ear, nose, and throat needs for years to come. The following is a summary of the ENTs who work at our facility: RivertownMagazine.com / 87
