Many people are concerned about losing their hearing. At Hearing Associates, we consider it our job to allay those fears and preserve your hearing long into the future. We want to provide you with answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about hearing tests.
An audiologist will perform a physical examination of your middle ear, eardrum, and ear canal. Sound and pressure tests may also be administered. Your audiologist will compose an audiogram (a physical representation of the state of your hearing) based on the test results and go over it with you.
You need a hearing test if you are having trouble hearing in crowds, on the phone, experiencing pain in your ear, experiencing dizziness, need new hearing aids, or if you simply have concerns about your hearing.
Hearing tests are painless and can be completed in a matter of minutes. We administer your hearing test gently and in a comfortable environment.
A hearing test will show the type, degree, and configuration of your hearing loss.
The data from hearing tests can be used to develop a treatment for hearing loss, tinnitus, and to fit you with the appropriate hearing aid device.
