Providing a convenient solution for hearing loss and hearing test needs.
What happens during a hearing test?
When we arrive, you will have several forms to fill out prior to your hearing exam.
When your hearing exam begins, we 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, we will 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.
You will then be tested using a series of low and high-frequency tones and words 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.
This testing will enable your Hearing Instrument Specialist to determine:
- Whether or not a hearing loss exists
- The possible cause of any hearing loss (Conductive or Sensorineural)
- The degree and type of hearing loss and whether the loss exists in one or both ears
- The best treatment options
Hearing Test Results
The results of your tests will be recorded on a form called an audiogram, which we will review with you. The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. If you have a loss, you will be shown the type, pattern, and degree of hearing loss, as well as the percentage of normal conversational speech that you are still able to hear.
We will then relate these results to your concerns about your hearing. The next step is to consider treatment solutions. You can count on our team taking the time necessary to understand your concerns so that they can provide you with everything you need to make an informed personal decision.
You can’t solve what you don’t understand. Schedule a hearing test and discover how much sound you’ve been missing…and how much more you could be hearing.
Hearing Aid Fitting
How do we help you get the best sound with your hearing aids?
When people need eyeglasses, they have their eyes examined, the doctor writes a prescription for the glasses, the glasses are made to order and sent to the doctor or optician. When you put the glasses on, you can see better. But sometimes the optician has to adjust the way the glasses fit on your nose or over your ears so they are comfortable.
With your hearing aids, the initial prescription may need some fine tuning to help you hear the best in all of your listening situations. Usually, this is done over the course of two to three follow up visits. We can fine-tune your hearing instruments to help you hear in a variety of situations including restaurants, crowds, and other difficult listening situations.
