Hearing Evaluations & Mapping
Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations for Adults
Scheduled and performed by our licensed and nationally certified hearing care providers. Diagnostic evaluations are subject to professional fees. Insurance often covers these services.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
During your examination you will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Hearing Rehabilitation & Training
People with hearing loss sometimes have difficulty understanding speech in noise. We provide training to help your brain learn how to “hear again” with your new hearing aids. Rehabilitation occurs by playing hearing games online and at home. One of our online training games is called HearCoach, which has a proven record of improving one’s ability to listen in noise. When people have improved listening in noise they don't have to work as hard to hear and can relax and participate in conversations without straining, even in loud or busy environments.
Hear Coach is a suite of listening games developed by Starkey Laboratories; it features games that challenge both your cognitive and auditory perceptiveness.
Live Speech Mapping
Live Speech Mapping is a fitting process that uses probe microphones and live real-time speech to allow the patient and their family members to immediately see and understand the benefits of hearing aids and fitting adjustments.
Tinnitus Evaluation & Management
Tinnitus is described as a ringing in the ear, and can range in severity. A tinnitus evaluation can help you identify how much tinnitus interferes with your daily life and if there are treatment options that can benefit you.
Tympanometry is an examination used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones, by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal.
