Taking a hearing test is the first step to better hearing. Our board-certified, trained audiologist conducts a comprehensive evaluation of your hearing.
Your hearing will be tested using cutting edge technology to determine if a hearing loss is present and if so, the type and extent of your hearing loss. We offer a number of tests designed to accurately determine the issues that might be affecting your hearing ability. In one of our tests, you are asked to respond when a sound has been heard. This test is designed to look for the softest sound you are able to hear in each frequency band.
Together, we will review your audiogram, a visual representation of your hearing ability. We use this to determine whether you would benefit from further hearing treatment.
Hearing Aid Evaluations
Hearing Aid Fittings
If a hearing loss is detected, we will review your treatment options with you. We customize hearing aids to meet your hearing needs, based on your audiogram results. At this stage, we will also explain how to operate your new hearing aid(s). We clarify how best to insert and remove, operate, and maintain the device.
This appointment is an important stage in the process and will usually take at least one hour. It's advisable that you reserve enough time for a comprehensive fitting. It might also be beneficial to bring a family member to the fitting appointment.
