staff is committed to you and our state of the art hearing tests reflect just

What happens during a hearing test?
• When you arrive for your hearing exam, you will be greeted by our front office staff and asked to fill out several forms that will verify identity, insurance, personal information, and medical history.
• When your hearing exam begins, your hearing aid specialist will review key personal information with you and will ask you a few questions to discover the specific types of environments in which you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing problems.
• Next, your hearing aid specialist may look into your ears by using an otoscope. This instrument is used to see the ear canal and the eardrum and whether or not there is earwax obstructing the canal. Sometimes the hearing aid specialist will have a video otoscope, so you can see inside your ear as well.
This testing will enable us to determine:
• Whether or not a hearing loss exists
• The possible cause of hearing loss
• The degree and type of hearing loss and whether the loss exists in one or both ears
• The best treatment options
Type of Hearing Test
You will be tested using a series of low and high frequency
tones to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a short distance
(as in a conversation). We will also give you several words to repeat. The
results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to
understand speech and if hearing aids will help you.
Hearing Test Results
Our hearing experts will go over the results of your hearing
test on our audiogram form. This form reflects your hearing loss in frequencies
and decibels. You will be shown the type, pattern and the degree of your
hearing loss, as well as what percentage of conversational speech you are still
able to hear. With these results and more we will then discuss the options
available to you and discuss in detail what the next steps are.
You can’t solve what you don’t understand. Schedule a
hearing test with our trained hearing aid specialists and discover how much
sound you’ve been missing… and how much more you could be hearing.
