Hearing Care Services
As part of our commitment to you, upon a visit with us you will experience a very thorough evaluation process in a very well equipped facility utilizing cutting edge technology and services. A new patient should expect 1 to 2 hours for the initial test and counseling visit, and 30 minutes to 90 minutes for the return fitting and verification session.
The entire process typically includes the initial question and answer and patient history profile discussion, followed by:
Close visual inspection of the outer ear, canal and eardrum by fiber optic camera. This procedure is entirely visible on screen to the patient.
Pure tone and speech testing performed in our large Isolation Sound Suite. The completely enclosed booth isolates you from the person administering the test and all other sounds to guarantee accurate results.
Test results are explained in detail to all concerned with any and all questions answered. Patients exhibiting any red flags, suspicious or obvious symptoms are always counseled to see their family physician as soon as possible.
Our goal by this point is to have helped the patient to be well enough informed to make a confident choice about the level of technology best suited for their hearing and lifestyle requirements and budget.
