Riverwood Healthcare offers a complete range of audiology services with Dr. Sarah Nelson, a certified audiologist.
Services include diagnostic evaluations of hearing and hearing aid dispensing, including customizing hearing aids for patients’ special hearing needs. Testing is done at the Specialty Clinic in Aitkin.
Audiologists have a greater knowledge of human hearing and balance than other hearing professionals. They study the intricate designs and workings of the entire human ear and the physics of sound and hearing. Audiologists don’t perform ear surgery or prescribe treatment for diseases of the ear.
Dr. Nelson refers patients who need more advanced treatment for ear conditions to Dr. Mark Rhodes, Ear, Nose & Throat specialist and surgeon who also sees patients at our specialty clinic and for surgery, as needed, at Riverwood Healthcare Center.
