“They were wonderful. They were very good. There just wasn't enough explanation about the hearing percentage. We weren't able to clarify that. ”
Official Response from East Valley Hearing Center, Inc.:“As a clinical audiologist, I often am asked by my patients what their "percentage of hearing loss" is. While I would like to be able to provide my patients with this information, I am unable to accurately define hearing losses on a percentage scale. When completing a hearing test I test multiple pitches at different levels. The goal is to find the softest sound a person is able to detect at each individual test pitch. I find that many people have more hearing loss at one pitch than they do another. Because of this, it is difficult to weigh the importance of information from one pitch over another; therefore, we do not give a percentage of hearing loss because a percentage would not be an accurate way to describe one's hearing ability. Another thing to consider is that there are different elements to hearing. There is the ability to detect sound (push the button when you hear the beep) and there is the ability to understand and make meaning of sound (say the word...). When completing a hearing test two people with the same ability to detect sound may have different levels of difficulties due to differing word understanding abilities. This occurs because sound is processed in the brain and not the ear by itself. We at East Valley Hearing Center take pride in educating our patients about their hearing loss. We are sure to discuss each patient's unique hearing ability and why their hearing loss is causing the individual difficulties that they are experiencing. It would be a privilege to clarify any questions you may have about your hearing loss. Please give us a call and we'll set up an appointment with one of our audiologists. --Heather Guerra, Au.D., FAAA Doctor of Audiology, Tinnitus Associate”
