Diagnostic Hearing Evaluation During your initial visit, you will be asked questions about your medical and hearing history. The Audiologist then uses a lighted otoscope to inspect your outer ear and your ear canal for any abnormalities that may affect your hearing test results or require you to visit an ENT doctor. Next the Audiologist will conduct several tests to determine:
Audiometric Test You will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand vertiage within a short distance, as in a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech, and if hearing aids will help you.
Tympanometry This procedure is an examilnation used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane), along with bone conduction, by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal.
OAE Acoustically evoked otoacoustic emission testing allows the hearing instrument provider to understand how the outer hair cells of your inner ear are working.

Tinnitus will not cause you to go deaf, but its presence may affect your daily activities. Our professionals can help recommend a course of action to deal with this persistent problem.
