If you think you might have a hearing loss, call and schedule an appointment with our doctor of audiology, Jared Young. Regular hearing tests for people over the age of 50 are recommended every couple of years.
Testing is painless, comfortable and safe. It consists of answering questions about your hearing health, recognizing everyday words at different volume levels, and identifying different sounds. Your ability to hear each tone or frequency produces a unique hearing pattern which is recorded on an audiogram. The test is completed in a sound booth using earphones and bone conduction oscillator. The Audiologist then uses the audiogram to determine the type and severity of a hearing loss and know whether that loss should be treated medically or with hearing aids.
