The first thing we start with is a simple questionnaire. The survey is conducted to establish the patient’s hearing history. After that, we provide a visual examination of your ears with an otoscope — a medical device used for evaluating hearing loss. The main aim of the examination is to reveal existing ear obstructions and problems that may be affecting your hearing. You will go through a series of hearing and speech recognition tests that will help determine both possible causes and the degree of hearing loss that may exist. If your condition requires medical treatment, then you will be referred to ENT Specialist for further testing. In case there is no any medical condition causing the hearing loss, the specialist will make a brief summary of relevant clinical guidelines that will help you move forward.
Hearing on Call Specialists regularly use audiometers in their practice. An audiometer is a medical test that evaluates your hearing by emitting sounds and tones at different frequencies. During the evaluation, the Specialist will notate all your responses — responses, and these response will form the basis of an accurate diagnosis. Since sensitivity to sound frequently differs from one ear to the other, we test each ear separately.
Depending on your level of hearing loss, the Specialist will recommend a hearing solution that best fits your hearing severity and budget. We also take into account your lifestyle and cosmetic preferences. It often happens that a patient’s hearing loss doesn’t require any hearing instruments. In this case, we schedule such individuals to come back in a year to monitor any progression of hearing loss. In some cases, the Specialist can fit you on the same day with a variety of hearing instruments to show how today’s digital hearing technology can reverse the effects of hearing loss on your life.
