Here at Amplifon Hearing Health Care, our goal is to restore the sounds of life to our members. One of our most valuable assets to meet that goal is our nationwide network of hearing health care providers who meet our strict credentialing requirements. Many of these professionals are Audiologists – individuals who’ve attained the pinnacle of their profession. In honor of October’s National Audiology Awareness Month, we are celebrating the incredible work of our audiologist partners and recognizing our two in-house Audiologists. Meet Thomas J. Tedeschi, Au.D., FNAP, our Chief of Audiology and Carrie Meyer, Au.D., our Director of Clinical Programs. The two of them have more than 70 years of combined experience. We sat down with Tom and Carrie to learn more about their passion for hearing health care.
Chances are you’ve probably heard of both an Audiologist and an ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) Doctor, but what’s the difference between the two and when should you see each one?

Perhaps they’re tired of struggling to keep up with conversations, fed up with frequently having to utter “huh?” or “pardon me?” Maybe they’ve cut back on social engagements, or they’re worried about how a hearing problem is affecting their career.
