Prior to your initial visit, we will check your insurance to determine if you have hearing benefits. Then when you come in for your consultation, one of the members of the audiology team will take a complete hearing case history, listen to your hearing or ear care concerns, discuss our services and determine the next steps.
Since hearing loss typically comes on gradually and may be hard to recognize, a hearing test can give us an accurate picture of where your hearing is today and establish a baseline for future visits. We will check your ear canals for wax, use state-of-the-art equipment to test frequencies throughout the speech range, evaluate your ability to understand speech and assess the overall health of your hearing mechanism. We will then review all the results with you and discuss what follow-up steps, if any, should be taken, such as a medical examination or hearing aids.
