Shelly Renee Jones, Au.D., is a clinical audiologist at Children’s Health℠ who cares for patients of all ages with hearing and balance disorders.
Audiologists specialize in providing diagnostic, rehabilitative and other services for conditions that affect hearing and balance.

She earned a Master of Science in audiology in 1989 from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City.

At Children’s Health, Dr. Jones evaluates and treats young patients in the Pediatric Audiology and Pediatric Ear Nose and Throat departments.
Dr. Jones performs a wide range of testing to diagnose hearing issues – including acoustic reflex, auditory brainstem response, conditioned play audiometry, otoacoustic emissions and visual reinforcement audiometry. She is also highly skilled in evaluations and fittings for hearing aids.
For patients who are struggling with balance issues, Dr. Jones uses many assessment methods – including videonystagmography, platform posturography and video head impulse testing.
