Complete Hearing Assessments: 

This comprehensive takes approximately one hour.  This allows time for the test itself, along with a case history, time to explain test results, and to provide recommendations.

This assessment includes:

  • Otoscopic Examination: 

    • This is a quick step, but very important.  Looking into one’s ear with an ear light shows us the visual health of the eardrum, the ear canal.  We can see the shape and size of one’s unique ear, and exam if there is any wax that needs to be tended to.
  • Tympanometry diagnostics:  

    • This is a quick and easy test.  This test allows us to measure the compliance or flexibility of the eardrum and to assess your ear pressure.
  • Audiometry testing:  

    • This test helps us determine where your hearing levels are and what the softest sounds are that you can hear.  We measure many different tones or frequencies ranging from 250 hz to 8000 hz.  This allows us to see where you may be having difficulty – results may show that some tones are heard very well, while there may be some other tones that are not.  We test these through what we call air conduction and bone conduction.
  • Speech Recognition testing: 

    • This test allows us to see how well speech is being interpreted.  While the volume of sound is important, the ability for the ear and auditory nerve to process sounds clearly is critical.  A thorough speech test allows us to really see how well one is recognizing words, and ultimately how effective a hearing device would be. 

 

Impression:  

An impression is required when we need a mold of your ear. Whether it be for a custom hearing aid or custom earmold for swimming or noise protection.  

Hearing Aid Maintenance + Repairs:  

Hearing aids are exposed to so many different environments and work so hard, they need to be serviced on a regular basis with regular maintenance and cleaning.

Hearing Aid Warranty Handling:

Should anything happen to a hearing device, we do take care of warrantied issues and deal directly with the manufacturer for you.  Even if you purchased your device from another office.

 

Hearing Aid Recommendations + Consultations: 

If someone has questions or concerns, we are more than happy to sit down with them and discuss.  This could be set for someone who is interested in seeking a second opinion, or someone who just has questions.

Hearing Aid Fitting/Dispensing: 

Once someone has decided to proceed with hearing aids, we schedule a fitting appointment.  The device is custom measured and fit and then we digitally program the device to a comfortable setting where they need assistance.

Comprehensive Follow Up Care + Counselling: 

Follow Up care is critical for hearing aid users. Changing your sense of sound is tricky business. We want to make sure that things are going well.  We schedule several follow up appointments to ensure your investment is successful.  

Hearing Aid Adjustments:  

These adjustments could entail how their hearing aid is fitting in or on their ear, or if the sound of the hearing aid tone requires an adjustment.

Some of these adjustments can even be done from your own home through the internet!

Hearing Aid Maintenance + Repairs:  

Hearing aids are exposed to so many different environments and work so hard, they need to be serviced on a regular basis with regular maintenance and cleaning.
