COMPLETE HEARING ASSESSMENT:
This Comprehensive Test takes approximately one hour. This allows time for the actual assessment, along with time to explain test results in detail, and to provide recommendations. The assessment includes the following:
Otoscopic Examination: Looking into your ear with an Otoscope (ear light) allows us to see the health of the eardrum and ear canal. We can see the shape and size of your unique ear, and check if there is any wax that needs to be removed.
Cerumen Management: Cerumen is another word for Ear Wax. We do provide gentle ear wax removal in our office.
Tympanometry Diagnostics: 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 what your hearing levels are. We measure many different tones or frequencies ranging from 250 hz to 8000 hz. We test these levels with our State of the Art Audiometer using both air conduction and bone conduction.
Speech Recognition Testing: This test allows us to see how well your ears are transmitting or interpreting words. It is important to identify how well the ear is transmitting sounds from the ear to the auditory nerve to the brain. This step is so important to identify how clear words are sounding and if required just how effective a hearing device would be.
Speech in Noise Testing: This special test we use if you are struggling with background noise. It reflects again what our expectations should be in how we can manage in complex listening environments.
