When you arrive at your Hearing Center
After learning about you and your hearing challenges, your Hearing Care Professional will look in your ears and then test your hearing in a sound-treated booth.
Using special headphones, you will hear a series of beeps, buzzes and words. Some of these sounds and words will be loud and some will be very soft. You will simply raise your hand, press a button or repeat the words you hear. Don’t worry! Your Hearing Care Professional will guide you every step of the way.
As part of the hearing test, your Hearing Care Professional may quickly set up a pair of hearing aids and have you repeat more words to get a better understanding of your hearing needs.
Your Hearing Care Professional will graph your hearing on an audiogram to determine your type and degree of hearing loss.
They will then go over the findings with you by explaining what sounds you may or may not be able to hear which often correlates to the hearing challenges you shared prior to the appointment.
From there, if a hearing loss is found, your Hearing Care Professional may recommend hearing aids. You may even take a pair home with you that day for a trial.
If your Hearing Care Professional finds that you have a hearing loss, they will recommend hearing aids for you based on your hearing challenges and type of hearing loss. We have a wide variety of hearing aid styles and technology, and we will work together with you to find the best solution for your lifestyle.
You might even be able to walk out that same day with a pair of hearing aids on your ears.
