Hearing screening tests and comprehensive hearing assessments.

Our team of Audiologists are professionals dedicated to conducting comprehensive diagnostic hearing assessments in adults and infants to determine the type and level of hearing ability.  Like our vision, our hearing mechanism relies on input from both ears to locate sound sources and focus on specific sounds and conversations.  Under any circumstances, regular examinations and hearing tests will provide a certain answer.
A comprehensive hearing evaluation consists the following:

  • Pure Tone Audiometry consisting of air and bone conduction measurements
  • Immittance testing which assesses middle ear function, including membrane mobility, middle ear pressure, acoustic reflexes, and reflex decay
  • Speech Audiometry, which assesses a patient’s ability to discriminate and comprehend speech in both noise and quiet.
  • Tympograms: Ipsilateral measurements.
  • Video Otocsope ear inspections.

Hearing Screenings consist of the following:

  • Pure Tone Testing
  • Video Otoscopy

Recommending and fitting hearing aids.

Our team of experts combine experience and superior levels of service with the newest, most innovative techniques and digital technology available today.
In addition these professionals provide follow-up care for patients and family members to ensure success with their hearing.

Advanced Diagnostic Services

  • Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) testing :
    allows the audiologist to confirm normal peripheral hearing status in difficult to test patients, such as newborns, and offer additional information to confirm the site of lesion of the hearing loss. Also, the effects of factors such as hazardous noise levels, ototoxic medications, and Meniere’s Disease may be detected and monitored before they are measured by standard hearing testing.
    Tinnitus assessment and counseling.
  • Tinnitus Assessment & Counselling:
     is the medical term for the sensation of hearing sound in your ears when no external sound is present. Typically, sufferers describe the sound as “ringing in ears,” though others describe it as hissing, buzzing, whistling, roaring and even chirping.
    While there currently is no known tinnitus cure, there are recommended ways to get tinnitus relief, including counselling and sound therapy.
    Hearing aids can be an effective part of any sound therapy. According to the non-profit Better Hearing Institute, “the use of hearing aids improves communication, reduces the stress associated with intensive listening, and also can partially mask tinnitus.”

Cerumen Management for Hearing Aid Patients

Approximately 80% if hearing aid patients experience hearing aid breakdowns due to excessive cerumen (ear wax). Keeping the outer ear and canal free of cerumen creates the best success for hearing aid patients.
Audiologists are trained to remove cerumen. Removing cerumen for patients with hearing instruments is critical for the purpose of maintaining their hearing instruments so that the instruments can function at an optimal level.
