Audiologists are the only health professionals with extensive training on the anatomy and physiology of the ear and hearing, and are the only health professionals certified to perform diagnostic hearing tests. A complete hearing evaluation begins by finding the softest sounds a person can hear across the range of speech frequencies. After these thresholds have been determined, testing for speech reception thresholds (the ability to repeat very soft speech), speech discrimination ability (the ability to understand speech presented at a comfortable listening level), and uncomfortable listening levels are performed. A referral to a physician will be made for any results that indicate medical and/or surgical intervention may be beneficial. * Hearing Aid Sales & Service Cedar Rapids Hearing Center offers a wide variety of hearing instruments featuring the latest technology.
