What to Expect During Your Test

If you're not hearing like you used to, schedule an appointment and get a hearing exam from a highly-rated Audiologist. We will perform a comprehensive test that will help to identify your problem areas and possible solutions.

Before you start the exam, we'll check to see if there are any concerns about your hearing health, whether there is a family history of hearing loss and whether you have ever experienced any particularly loud and prolonged sounds. Your replies are crucial to understanding whether further tests are required.

After the consultation, we will check your ears with an otoscope. We are checking to see whether your ear canals are blocked by wax or any other obstructions which may impact your hearing.

Your hearing test is conducted in a sound booth and consists of two parts:

  • The first section examines which frequencies you can and cannot hear. A sequence of gentle “beeps” or sounds will be played while you wear headphones.
  • The second part explores your capacity to understand speech. You will be asked to repeat words at different volume levels. Sometimes there will be noise present while you try to understand the words.

When the test is finished, a graph called an audiogram displays your results. We will discuss the data displayed with you and offer advice on your next steps. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions you may have about your test results, our recommendations for treatment, types of hearing aids or anything else about your results.
