Comprehensive Hearing Testing
If you suspect you or a loved one may have hearing loss, it is important to seek proper testing and evaluation by an audiologist. The purpose of an audiological evaluation is to determine whether a hearing loss is indeed present, and if so, the type and severity of the hearing impairment.
The audiologist uses a variety of sounds and test equipment such as earphones and speakers to evaluate your hearing. The process is completely painless, comfortable and safe.
Tests may include:
- Comprehensive Audiometric Evaluations - Pure tone air and bone conduction to determine the type and severity of hearing loss
- Tympanometry - Evaluation of middle ear function
- Auditory Processing Testing - To identify problems with understanding speech, following directions, or listening in different environments
- Otoacoustic Emission Testing - Detects cochlear dysfunction
