Saratoga Hospital ENT Practice Adds Clinical Audiologist
Patients Benefit from Comprehensive Hearing, Balance-Related Services
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y., March 2, 2020—Clinical audiologist Sean Fuster has joined Saratoga Hospital Medical Group – Ear, Nose & Throat, giving patients easy access to comprehensive hearing and balance-related services.
Audiologists specialize in evaluating and treating hearing and balance-related conditions, including hearing loss, ear pain, speech sound disorders, noise or ringing in the ears and dizziness. These healthcare professionals often work closely with ear, nose and throat physicians.
“The ideal situation for patients is to have access to audiology services within an ENT practice,” said Dr. Richard Falivena, vice president and chief medical and physician integration officer at Saratoga Hospital. “With Dr. Fuster on board, our ear, nose and throat team can more easily collaborate to provide comprehensive, coordinated care.”
Fuster is experienced in treating patients of all ages. He comes to Saratoga Hospital from Oviatt Hearing and Balance, a private practice in Syracuse.
Fuster earned a doctorate in audiology from Salus University in Pennsylvania and completed residencies at Dent Neurologic Institute and Hearing Evaluation Services, both in Amherst, New York. He holds a Certificate of Clinical Competency in Audiology from the American Speech Language and Hearing Association.
