Let’s get you on the road to better hearing with a comprehensive hearing evaluation from one of our team members. If you believe you may be experiencing hearing loss and other hearing problems, please do not hesitate to contact us!
What is a Hearing Evaluation?
A hearing evaluation is the initial step to understanding your hearing problem. From the evaluation, we can determine what type of hearing loss is present and its severity. The evaluation tests allow us to hone in on your personalized treatment plan to a solution.
What Tests Will Be Completed?
The particular types of tests conducted will be determined based on your age, and current hearing status. The test will help articulate the degree, type of hearing loss, and condition of the ear canal and middle ear. It is the first step in understanding the extent and impact of the identifying hearing loss and learning how to correct it to improve your quality of life.
Types of test include:
Air Conduction Testing
Bone Conduction Testing
Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions (DPOAE) Testing
Tympanometry or Acoustic Immittance Testing
What Happens After the Evaluation?
Expect the evaluation to last approximately 20-40 minutes. After the evaluation is complete, we will spend time discussing your results as well as our recommendations for further action. Please, feel free to ask questions during this time. We want our care to reflect your personal listening lifestyle and listening needs as well!
