Audiologists specialize in providing diagnostic, rehabilitative and other services for conditions that affect hearing and balance.

They also work closely with ear, nose and throat physicians (otolaryngologists) to care for the medical causes of hearing problems.

At Children’s Health, Dr. Shelburg is a member of the pediatric hearing aid team. She provides hearing aid assessments, fittings and troubleshooting for children with hearing loss.
