What is an Audiologist?

There has been an unfortunate proliferation of hearing aid centers staffed by individuals with superficial training whose primary objective is sales. An audiologist is a highly skilled, university-trained professional who has an advanced degree in Audiology. An audiologist provides every patient with individualized treatment that meets the highest hearing care and ethical standards to achieve optimal hearing improvement. Audiologists can provide exceptional hearing and balance care with outstanding results.

Why Choose an Audiologist?

Patients affected by hearing loss deserve expert, knowledgeable care from an audiologist who can accurately evaluate the patient’s condition and prescribe the hearing-improvement solution that specifically addresses that patient’s needs. This is precisely the care offered by an audiologist.


An audiologist:

  • Has a professional degree in Audiology from an accredited university and has undergone extensive training in all aspects of hearing impairment causes and solutions.
  • Thoroughly analyzes each patient’s health history, including factors such as medications, diseases, physiology, genetics, and past exposure to noise to determine their impact on the patient’s hearing.
  • Provides highly effective treatment strategies that specifically address the patient’s particular needs.
  • Has the extensive education and training necessary to determine when a patient requires hearing aids.
  • Has the uncompromised expertise to provide precise fitting of hearing instruments, as well as custom tuning and verification of the instruments’ performance.
  • Is independent of any large retail corporation and its bottom-line focus on profits over patient needs. The objective of an audiologist is to provide each patient with complete, respectful care that expertly resolves hearing problems in the most effective manner possible.

We recognize the significant impact the COVID-19 pandemic has already had and will continue to have on your day-to-day lives. No one knows how long or severe this crisis will be. However, please know that Lake Mary ENT & Allergy will do everything possible to protect the public health, to heal those who are suffering, and hopefully be beacons of hope in our community. We understand that you may be anxious and fearful at this time. As the typical viral season winds down and allergy season ramps up, it may be difficult to tell if your symptoms are due to your allergies or possibly COVID-19. We are here to help you during these difficult days ahead.

We understand the importance of our role as your healthcare provider, particularly for patients with asthma and other allergic conditions who may be at higher risk of experiencing severe symptoms with COVID-19. We are committed to helping you navigate through this difficult period. It is imperative that you keep your asthma and other allergic conditions under control during these next few months. This means taking your medications as prescribed to you by Dr Damask, including your allergy shots or allergy drops and if you are on a biologic medication that you keep up your regime with your in-office injections.

Dr Damask and her staff at Lake Mary ENT & Allergy want you to know that we are taking great care to ensure proper sterilization of the instruments used for examination and we are also maintaining a sanitary office environment for all our patients by disinfecting the exam rooms after each patient.

We have rearranged our waiting room to promote social distancing and we have set up a special area just for patients with respiratory symptoms. We also have appropriate supplies for hand washing as well as hand sanitizer for your use in the office. If you are interested in alternatives to in person visits, contact the office about telehealth options. We are now offering virtual visits through a webcam or your phone.

Please follow the CDC recommendations regarding measures such as frequent handwashing and not touching your face. If you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath AND have had recent international travel/been on a cruise OR have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please contact the COVID-19 Hotline at 1-877-VIRUSHQ or 1-866-779-6121 to speak with a clinical expert about your concerns and receive guidance on the next steps that are right for you.
