What To Expect
Hearing loss occurs so gradually you might not notice it. That’s one reason the average person lives with hearing loss for seven years before seeking assistance. Your hearing evaluation appointment will begin with a frank discussion about situations in which you find it difficult to hear. In addition, our hearing health care professionals will review your medical history and go over any medications and supplements you take.
Next, we’ll examine your ears with an instrument called an otoscope. This exam is painless and allows our health professionals to see your ear canal and eardrum.
Feel free to bring a friend or family member along if it will make you feel more comfortable.
