Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
When you arrive for your hearing exam, you will be greeted by the front office staff and asked to fill out several forms, including those that record your personal information, medical history, and insurance verification.
As your hearing exam begins, your tester may review your personal information with you and will ask you some questions that are designed to discover the specific types of environments in which you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing problems.
Next, your tester may look into your ears by using an otoscope. This instrument is used to see the ear canal and the eardrum and whether or not there is earwax obstructing the canal.
We do have a video otoscope and will sometimes use this so that you can see inside your ear as well!
