In brief: See both

The otolaryngologist is the physician and surgeon who should obtain a detailed history and examination of your condition.
The audiologist should perform a detailed hearing evaluation. Ultimately, the ENT physician should guide your care. Seek a practice that has both practitioners under one roof to give you the best care.

In brief: Audiologist

Audiologists do a much more complete exam and can isolate the specific abnormality with hearing, which is helpful to an ENT physician in terms of diagnosis and treatment.
