Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
Complete hearing tests can be scheduled and performed by our licensed Audiologists. You will be tested in a sound treated booth using a series of low to high frequency tones by way of Air Conduction and Bone Conduction. In addition, we will have you repeat a list of words to determine your ability to understand speech within a quiet conversation. The results of these tests will help us determine the amount of hearing loss you have, your ability to understand speech and how much benefit you may receive from hearing aids or other assistive devices.
