What Happens During a Hearing Test?
When you arrive for your hearing exam, our front office staff will greet you and may ask you to fill out a few forms, gathering contact information, medical history, and insurance verification.
When your hearing exam begins, we’ll review key personal information with you and ask you questions to discover the specific types of environments where you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing impairment.
Next, we may look into your ears with an otoscope, a special instrument to see the ear canal and the eardrum, and/or perform one of the tests below. This is a painless and highly informative procedure.
During this hearing test, you’ll be tested using a series of low and high-frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a short distance (simulating a conversation). We’ll also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine the degree of your hearing loss, your ability to understand speech, and if hearing aids will help you.

Your Hearing Test Results
We’ll record the results of your hearing test on a form called an audiogram, which we will review with you. The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. We’ll show you the type, pattern, and degree of hearing loss, as well as the percentage of normal conversational speech that you’re still able to hear. We will then relate these results to your concerns about your hearing.
Next, we’ll consider treatment solutions. You can count on our team to take the time necessary to understand your concerns so that they can provide you with everything you need to make an informed personal decision.
