Question: Do you have to be a hearing Doctor (Audiologist) to give hearing test or to sell Hearing Aids?
Answer: No, The fact is that many Hearing aid sales people have very little training or none at all to answer questions about causation or the severity of hearing loss. Only a Doctor is trained to diagnose, manage and/or treat hearing or balance problems.

Protect Your Hearing
Being able to hear sounds is very important to human beings.
It enables us to communicate with each other and makes us feel as part of a group. Being able to hear well allows us to receive information, both from other people and from our surroundings.
Sounds can be pleasurable - the sound of nature or music, or noisy - sounds that are too loud or too uncomfortable.
