Hearing Services: The 9 steps to Better Hearing
Step 1: Hearing Exam
We will begin by reviewing your hearing health history. Then we will inspect your ear canal and eardrum. This is a painless, easy task performed with a special instrument called an otoscope or video otoscope.
Step 2: Audiogram Results & Review
Our hearing test evaluates your hearing sensitivity and is performed using an audiometer, which determines the softest level at which you hear different frequencies.
Step 3: Hearing Loss Consultation
The hearing healthcare professional will review your audiogram from the hearing test, along with your Needs Assessment to prescribe the appropriate course of treatment.
Step 4: Hearing Aid Overview
You and your companion will complete a lifestyle and listening Needs Assessment with the hearing healthcare professional to determine the most common listening environments in which you need hearing help.
Step 5: Hearing Aid Demonstration
You may be fitted with a set of hearing instruments to try through the rest of the consultation. This will ensure that you can effectively communicate with the hearing healthcare professional as the evaluation proceeds.
Step 7: Possible Same Day Delivery of Hearing Aid
Step 8: Trial Period
You will have a trial period to ensure your complete satisfaction. It will begin the day of your fitting.
Step 9: Two Week Follow-up
You will be seen multiple times during this period by your healthcare professional for any needed adjustments and counseling.
