Your hearing evaluation is an important first step to determine your hearing status. A hearing evaluation is used to find out how much you are hearing and to decide what technologies and/or treatments can best improve your ability to communicate. This may include hearing aids, assistive listening devices, or further evaluation for other specialized treatments. We may also recommend consultation with Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat physicians) or other specialist depending on the results of your exam. This would all be thoroughly discussed with you at the time of your evaluation.
What to expect during your appointment
A typical adult hearing evaluation includes:
- Hearing history and current concerns
- Otoscopy (assessing the outer ear)
- Tympanometry and Reflex testing (assessing the middle ear and auditory nerve status)
- Speech Detection and Understanding
