A hearing screening is a short 10-15 minute test and is appropriate for individuals who are not sure whether they have a hearing problem. A complete audiological evaluation is a thorough test (45-minutes-1 hour) that includes pure tone testing, speech testing, middle ear evaluation and counseling. This is appropriate for individuals who already know they are having a hearing problem. Most insurance companies cover a complete audiological evaluation on a yearly basis.
At the completion of the evaluation, the audiologist will explain the results and make recommendations. The audiologist will also assist you in carrying out the recommendations. This will include helping you to acquire hearing aids.
If you feel you are having a medical problem (eg. pain, discharge etc.) in your ears then you should see a medical doctor first. If you have a history of earwax, then you should have it checked before your evaluation. We will give you a medical referral if we feel it is necessary after we complete the evaluation. If you need a hearing aid, you will need medical clearance.
