What Happens at a Hearing Test?

Hearing tests, part of keeping your hearing health in top shape, are quick, painless, and important for the whole family. The five easy steps of a hearing test at Center for Audiology Services include:

1. Interview

The interview process helps our audiologists determine the extent of your hearing difficulty and aids us in uncovering any specific areas requiring further attention.

2. Inspection

We take a close look inside your ear and figure out whether your hearing issue is due to an obstruction or damage to the ear canal or eardrum.

3. Testing

Our tests help us determine your level and type of hearing loss as well as the conditions of your outer and middle ear, with specific tests depending on your symptoms, age, and case history.

4. Review

We’ll go over the results of the examination and testing, including the nature and extent of any hearing loss or ear damage, options moving forward, and any questions you may have.

5. Solutions

Whether results show you simply need a good ear cleaning or that hearing devices would make a big difference, your audiologist will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.

A clear picture of your hearing starts with a hearing test. Getting regular hearing checkups, just as you would for your ears and teeth, can help you stay connected to what matters most.
