In our first meeting we conduct a thorough review of your hearing and the factors that can affect your hearing health. This appointment will take approximately 90 minutes. We recommend you bring a friend or family member so we can evaluate parts of the hearing test using a familiar voice.
Examination: a visual exam of your ears for any factors that could affect the hearing test results such as infection or wax build-up.
Hearing Health History/Personal Hearing Survey: you will be asked specific questions about your otological (hearing) health and general health factors that can affect hearing such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Hearing Needs Assessment: your Connect Hearing Professional will ask you about 3-4 daily situations in which you would like to improve communications.
Hearing Test: A hearing test is an evaluation of the sensitivity of your hearing. It takes place in a sound-proofed booth or room. Seated comfortably, you’ll put on headphones and listen to a series of tones. You will push a button when you hear each sound.
Results: your Connect Hearing professional will explain your results and how they relate to the communication situations you’ve described.
Solutions: if you can benefit from hearing aids, your Connect Hearing professional will recommend a solution for your individual hearing loss, including the option to try hearing aids for two weeks at no obligation so you can experience the improvement first hand.
