The effects of hearing loss can be minimized if:

1. Your problem is correctly diagnosed

2. You received the right type of treatment

3. You and your hearing healthcare team are committed to solving the problem.
 A comprehensive hearing evaluation will assess the type,
degree, and cause of hearing loss. Our goal is to get to the bottom of your hearing loss, not just to see if you need
hearing aids. We are a diagnostic focused clinic.The following is an example of what you can expect to be done during your comprehensive audiological examination:

1. The Interview

 The purpose of this step is to help our audiologist dtermine the extent of your problem and uncover any specific areas requiring further attention. Some examples of questions asked at this meeting are "has anyone else in your family had hearing loss" and "have you had any illnesses or injuries that might have affected your hearing".

2. Examination

 During the examination the audiologist will be able to determine whether the hearing issue you are experiencing could be caused by an obstruction or damage to the ear canal or drum. Your audiologist will use a special instrument called an otoscope to inspect the other ear.

3. Hearing Test

 A hearing test is done to help your audiologist determine the nature of your hearing loss. Tests, like the following, may be used depending on their assessment of your needs:

 Audiometric Pure Tone Evaluation
 - to measure your hearing at different frequencies.

 Speech Evaluation
 - to measure how well you hear and understand ordinary conversation at different listening levels.

 Immittance Middle Ear Evaluation
 - to measure how your eardrum and hearing react to varying degrees of air pressure.

4. During your consultation, we will explain your results and answer your questions. If you need hearing devices, we will prescribe the digital hearing devices based on your individual needs. If your hearing loss can be medically treated, we will discuss that with you also.

 Based on your hearing loss and the struggles you are having, specialized assistive listening devices may also be prescribed. These devices work with your hearing devices to facilitate improved face-to-face communication, reception of electronic media, telephone reception, and the reception of important warning sounds.
