Your Hearing Journey – Getting Started
Why are comprehensive hearing tests important?
Comprehensive hearing examinations are 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 hearing test appointment?
Please complete and sign our online forms in the convenience of your home. Please bring a list of your current medications and supplements including dosage amounts.
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.
Finest audiologist in Sierra Vista. Have been dealing with this company for over fifteen years. First my father and secondly my mother and now myself. Still servicing my 101 year old mother’s hearing aids. No high pressure sales, just a free audio exam and detailed discussion of results and what they mean. They market many different brands of hearing aids and can compare the different types as to which one best meet your needs. Many different pricing options to fit your budget. One thing to look for when purchasing hearing aids is to make sure that the manufacturer does not have proprietary programming software. I ran into this difficulty with my father as well as my mother. The representative of their manufacturer closed up and moved out of town. Their hearing aid software was proprietary and no other audiologist in town could adjust them. We were forced to drive to Tucson and find a representative who could do that. Quite an inconvenience. I had a hearing evaluation today, 15 June 18, and when given options as to what type would best meet my budget and requirements I asked about the proprietary software issue that I had run into with my parents. I was assured that all six manufacturers that they carried did not have proprietary software. If you move away, you can still have a better choice of audiologists for adjustments. I took the time to discuss this issue as I encountered it with both my mother and father!
