Community Recognizes EAR Audiology as San Diego's Best Audiologist

EAR Audiology, a hearing healthcare provider located in coastal Encinitas, won the Best Audiologist award in this year's San Diego Union-Tribune Readers' Poll.

ENCINITAS, Calif., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- EAR Audiology, a private practice owned and operated by Dr. Aaron Jones, received the 2011 San Diego's Best Audiologist award with support from patients, physicians, family, and friends. Voting took place on The San Diego Union-Tribune website as part of the newspaper's 15th annual Readers' Poll. The ballot included eight select audiologists who were named most often during the preceding nomination period. This marks the second consecutive year that audiologists were included in the poll, reflecting increased public awareness of the audiology profession.

Audiologists can evaluate and treat disorders of the hearing and balance systems. This includes conducting specialized tests, working with physicians to diagnose, monitoring, counseling, prescribing hearing aids and other assistive devices, rehabilitating, and providing both services and products for hearing conservation. According to the California Department of Consumer Affairs website, there are 191 licensed audiologists in San Diego County. They work in a variety of settings like hospitals and private practices.

When asked how often adults should see an audiologist, Dr. Jones replied "immediately if they have vertigo or dizziness, or if they have undiagnosed hearing difficulty or ringing in the ears; early diagnosis and treatment are critical. Frequent audiologist appointments are needed during administration of chemotherapy or intravenous antibiotics, or with repeated exposure to chemical fumes. People should visit an audiologist at least annually if they have a diagnosed ear disorder, wear hearing aids, or are regularly exposed to loud noise. In the absence of symptoms or exposure to loud noise and toxins, adults should see an audiologist every three years."

EAR Audiology attributes winning the San Diego's Best Audiologist award to the strength of its communications with existing and prospective patients. According to Dr. Jones, the company strives to "help patients understand both the rationale for conducting specific tests and the implications of test results." Besides dedicating time for discussion with every patient, Dr. Jones administers the company Facebook page. He also volunteers at the Encinitas Community and Senior Center by providing quarterly hearing healthcare screenings.
