It is important to get a thorough audiological assessment by a licensed audiologist and not just a “hearing test” or “hearing screening” for the purpose of fitting hearing aids – unless you have already been diagnosed by an audiologist and there has been no major change in your hearing.
We begin by taking a thorough hearing-related medical history. Next, we look into your ear canals using an otoscope, checking for anything that might affect test results or require a visit with your physician. If our audiological assessment indicates a possible underlying medical cause, we refer you for follow-up with your physician.
If your hearing loss can be effectively compensated with hearing aids, we will recommend devices most appropriate for the degree of loss, your preferences, your lifestyle, and your budget.
