Hearing Tests

audiogram and otoscope

Undergoing a hearing assessment is a straightforward and non-invasive process that can provide valuable insights.

During your auditory examination, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation to better understand how any hearing impairment may impact your daily life. This involves reviewing your medical history and utilizing advanced technology to assess your current hearing abilities. Additionally, we explore various factors that may have contributed to your hearing loss.

A thorough hearing examination enables us to fully grasp the range of volumes and frequencies you can hear, as well as your ability to comprehend speech from others. If hearing loss is identified, our primary aim is to equip you with comprehensive information, empowering you to make informed decisions about the most suitable treatment options.

Even if you are not currently experiencing noticeable symptoms, it is highly recommended that everyone undergo regular auditory assessments. Many individuals underestimate the significant advantages these evaluations can provide, not only in preserving natural hearing ability but also in early detection of potential issues. Through our meticulous auditory assessments, we dedicate our efforts to understanding your specific hearing needs and devising effective strategies to enhance your listening experience.

What is the process?

In your consultation, we focus on transparency by providing a thorough explanation of our procedures. This guarantees that you understand each step of our journey together.

This includes reviewing your medical and family history, assessing your current medications, and discussing your lifestyle and treatment objectives. Through this initial consultation, we establish clear and honest communication, fostering trust as we embark on our journey towards improved hearing together.

After completing your initial consultation, we proceed to the evaluation phase, which comprises various tests to serve as benchmarks for monitoring your progress and evaluating the effectiveness of your chosen treatment. Our comprehensive hearing examination may include the following components:


1. Visual Inspection with an Otoscope: We use an otoscope to visually examine your ear canal and eardrum.
2. Familiar Voice Test: We assess your ability to hear in a conversational setting.
3. Preliminary Pure-Tone Screening: Different tones and frequencies are delivered through headphones to determine your hearing thresholds.
4. Speech Testing: This test measures your ability to comprehend speech at different levels.
5. Speech in Noise Testing (Quicksin): We evaluate your capacity to understand speech amidst background noise.
6. Tympanometry Testing: This test checks for fluid in the ear, perforated eardrum, or wax obstruction by using a puff of air.
7. Acoustic Reflex Tests: These assessments analyze how the small muscles in the middle ear respond to various sounds.


Through this comprehensive evaluation, we can assess your hearing abilities and gather the necessary data to assist you in making an informed decision about the most suitable treatment option. As part of our commitment to patient education, we will guide you through each step of the procedures, explain the results obtained, and help you understand their significance.
