Proper Hearing Evaluation

Evaluating the hearing system can be complex and sensitive. More than a simple and quick exam performed in a location other than a specially sound treated room is necessary to distinguish between a medically correctable hearing loss and a loss that will benefit from a hearing aid.

Audiologists are the only hearing professionals trained and licensed to evaluate your hearing with more sensitive diagnostic equipment. While audiometers are used to measure hearing to fit hearing aids, we use it as part of our comprehensive assessment to rule out medically correctable hearing loss.

We also use Acoustic Impedance to determine if there is ear disease; Auditory Brainstem Response equipment to assess the hearing of infants or to rule out problems such as tumors; and electronystagmography (ENG) to assess inner ear disorders.
