Comprehensive Hearing Test and EvaluationA comprehensive hearing evaluation will help us answer several questions:
- Is hearing loss present?
- How severe is the hearing loss?
- What is the type of hearing loss?
- Is the hearing loss medically treatable?
- Are hearing aids necessary?
The audiologist uses a variety of tests to evaluate your hearing. The process is painless, comfortable and safe. It may include:
- Pure-tone air conduction testing
- Pure-tone bone conduction testing
- Speech testing to include word recognition
- Speech in noise testing
- Tympanometry and/or acoustic reflex testing
Why are comprehensive hearing evaluations important?
A comprehensive hearing evaluation is an important tool in the identification of hearing loss and for determining the best course of action for your specific treatment. Some hearing loss may be treated medically and requires an evaluation by your physician or an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist prior to receiving your hearing aids. If it is determined that hearing aids are the best solution, the comprehensive hearing evaluation in conjunction with a thorough case history helps to determine the best treatment options for your particular hearing needs.
What to bring to your appointment?

Most importantly, it is recommended that you bring a family member or loved one along with you to the appointment. Hearing loss also affects those closest to us and having them present for the appointment allows them the opportunity to understand the test results and recommendations and be involved with the planned course of treatment.
