Audiology is the clinical evaluation and management of hearing and balance problems in people of all ages. It also involves the fitting and management of hearing aids and other hearing assistive devices.
Michael A. Sexton, Au.D., provides several hearing services on the campus of Parkway Regional Hospital.
Dr. Michael Sexton completed undergraduate studies in Communication Disorders at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He earned his Doctor of Audiology degree from the School of Audiology at Pennsylvania College of Optometry. He is licensed by the state of Kentucky as an audiologist and as a hearing instrument specialist, and holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association.
Dr. Sexton joined Parkway Regional Hospital's staff in 2009. He has fourteen years of experience as an audiologist. His clinic is equipped with a sound treated booth to assure test accuracy. Hearing ability can be evaluated through traditional techniques such as repeating words at various loudness levels or responding to soft tones over a range of pitches. A graph of your hearing ability, known as an audiogram, will then be obtained. If a significant hearing loss is noted, patients will be evaluated for hearing aids.
