All clinics are now closed due to COVID-19. Read our latest statement here.
A full hearing evaluation will give us a detailed understanding of your hearing, hearing health, hearing challenges and hearing needs.
The hearing evaluation adds to the information we have from a Hearing Health Check. The hour long appointment is very thorough and we will share the results with you, in language that you can understand, be it at home or in clinic.
Our approach is caring, friendly and empathetic. We will listen. You will have a chance to express how you feel about your hearing and communication challenges and let us know what it is that you need and want. Most importantly, we will have a chance to learn about you and your hearing. It is ideal if you are able to bring a family member of friend in support. Having someone else present helps build a more detailed picture so that we can understand your hearing needs better. This can have a direct result of improved communication in terms of good communication advice, even if you took no further action. Having support, can help you to make a good informed decision so you won’t have to repeat everything you have learned about your hearing when you get home.
It’s about you and why you are having a Full Hearing Evaluation. Understanding how you feel about your hearing is very important. No one can place themselves in your shoes and your hearing is probably normal for you.
(If you have had a sudden change in your hearing, you should seek urgent medical advice.)
Creating a medical record. We will record information about your ear health and health in general. This is where we get to look down your ear canal with a video camera and ask you questions about your ear health history and medications etc.
The actual hearing and speech in noise test. We will find out how you hear with each ear. We will get an understanding of just how efficient ears are in delivering sound vibrations to the nerve of your ear as well as how well you understand a foreign accent when it is noisy.
Evaluation of results
A detailed examination of all the data brings everything together. We will do our best to try help you understand your test results for your left and right ears. We will provide you with a report and discuss the next steps with you.
The next step. We will test the prescription in the office using my demonstration hearing aids if this is required. This is not ideal test because it is unlikely that this is a typical situation listening environment for you. It will however give you and your loved one you brought along a clearer understanding of your hearing and the potential for improvement.
Ask about our Flex Trial Hearing aids or make use of the 60 day money back offer to try out a solution, if this is appropriate.
