Hearing Testing

Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a member of our front staff, and asked to provide information, including medical history and personal information, along with insurance confirmation. When your assessment starts, your audiologist will ask you some questions and review essential personal information with you to uncover the specific types of surroundings in which you may be encountering hearing loss and hearing trouble.

Next, using an otoscope your audiologist may look into your ears to see the ear canal and the eardrum and determine whether or not there is earwax obstructing the canal.

This testing will enable your audiologist to determine:

  • If hearing loss exists
  • The possible cause(s) leading to any hearing loss
  • The degree and type of hearing loss
  • Whether the loss exists in one or both ears and the best treatment options

Hearing Test Results

An audiologist will go over your test results that have been recorded on an audiogram. The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. We walk-through the results with you to understand your hearing, including the degree of hearing loss and the percentage of normal conversational speech you are still able to hear. 

The next step is to discuss your treatment options. You can rest assured that we will take the necessary time to understand your concerns so we may provide you with enough information to make an educated decision. 

Schedule your hearing test with one of our skilled audiologists and hear the sounds you’ve been missing.

Hearing Aid Fitting

Once you are fit with your hearing aids, be prepared to have them adjusted a few times. Our office may not be the best representation of your everyday listening environment. While you’re out and about wearing your new hearing aids, keep track of what is working well and what still needs adjusting. Be as detailed as possible during your follow-up appointments. Your feedback helps us adjust your devices to meet your specific preferences

A successful hearing aid fitting is more than just selecting the correct device for your hearing needs. The hearing aids need to be properly fit to your ears so that they provide the correct amount of amplification to maximize hearing aid benefit.

Proper confirmation of your hearing aid settings is necessary for a successful hearing aid fitting. If these actions are not completed, the audiologist will not know whether your hearing aids are programmed properly. This will ensure that you are receiving the appropriate amount of amplification to match the severity of your hearing loss.

Live Speech Mapping/Real Ear Measurement

We also use Live Speech Mapping, a fitting process that uses probe microphones and live, real-time speech to allow you and your family members to immediately see and understand the benefits of hearing aids and fitting adjustments.

There are three things you can do to get the most from your hearing devices and to help us adjust them, so you get the maximum benefit from wearing them:

1. Wear hearing aids as much as possible. The more you wear them, the more you’ll get used to them and, most importantly, the more information you’ll have to tell us so we can make adjustments.
2. Write down the situations where you feel you aren’t hearing your best. That way, we can reprogram the devices to work better in that specific situation.
3. Be patient. Most of the time, we can help you get more from your hearing aids, but it does take two or three visits to make this happen.
