This in-depth examination includes a detailed case history, a communication needs assessment, and tests of hearing levels for soft tones and of regular speech as well as speech in noisy settings. The test reveals if you need hearing aids or if medical care is required.
If hearing aids are recommended, we follow up with a hearing test to determine how much improvement you can expect and a demonstration of the effect hearing aids would have on your hearing. The test is completely painless and can take up to two hours (this can be broken down into segments as needed).
Every patient will receive a comprehensive hearing test unless not permitted due to health reasons or if requested by the patient or their family.
