What is a diagnostic hearing evaluation?
A diagnostic hearing evaluation is a collection of tests that require the patient to respond to frequency-specific auditory stimuli and speech.
Why are these important?
Diagnostic hearing evaluations not only provide information about your ear-specific hearing sensitivity but will provide important information in order to help determine the best course of action for treatment.
Is a hearing evaluation right for me?
If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, you may want to consider scheduling a hearing evaluation. Schedule a consultation
- Do you have difficulty following conversations in noisy or crowded environments?
- Have you found yourself frequently asking others to repeat themselves?
- Have you been told that you speak too loudly when speaking?
- Have you experienced pain or ringing sensations in one or both of your ears?
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any tests that I have to undergo prior to my evaluation?
Depends. When you contact our office, our staff will walk you through the necessary steps to take prior to your evaluation. However, oftentimes, patients are asked to undergo cerumen (ear wax) removal prior to testing to ensure that it is not impacting test results
