Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations

During your initial visit, you will be asked questions about your medical and hearing history. Then the Audiologist will use a lighted otoscope to inspect your outer ear and your ear canal for any abnormalities that may affect your hearing test results or require you to visit either your primary care physician or an ENT doctor. Next, the Audiologist will conduct several tests to determine:

  • Whether or not a hearing loss exists
  • Its possible cause
  • The degree and type of hearing loss and whether the loss exists in one or both ears
  • The best treatment options

Audiometric Test

You will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a short distance as in 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 if hearing aids will help you.

Tympanometry

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.

Tinnitus Evaluation and Management

Tinnitus is a common condition, where a person experiences a ringing, rushing, or buzzing in the ears. Tinnitus will not cause you to go deaf, but its presence may affect your daily activities. Our professionals can help recommend a course of action to deal with this persistent problem. Each person has an individual response to treatment. Our goal is to work with you to relieve this condition.

Fitting and Follow-Up Care

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.

Cerumen (Wax) Management

Earwax ,or cerumen, is a waxy substance secreted in the ear canal. Its purpose is to protect and clean the skin of the human ear canal while protecting it from debris, bacteria and water. Sometimes the ear produces too much wax which can become impacted and press against the eardrum. This can impair the ability to hear. We can assist in the safe removal of ear wax

Evaluating Dizzy Patients, Vertigo, and Balance Disorders

We evaluate dizziness and balance disorders with Videonystagmography (VNG).

VNG testing is used to determine if a vestibular (balance system) disorder may be causing a balance or dizziness problem, and is one of the only tests available today that can decipher between a unilateral (one ear) and bilateral (both ears) vestibular loss. VNG testing is a series of tests designed to document a persons ability to follow visual objects with their eyes and how well the eyes respond to information from the vestibular system.

This test also addresses the functionality of each ear and if a vestibular deficit may be the cause of a dizziness or balance problem. To monitor the movements of the eyes, infrared goggles are placed around the eyes to record eye movements during testing. VNG testing is non-invasive, and only minor discomfort is felt by the patients during testing as a result of wearing goggles. Appointments usually last about 1.5 hours.

Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions Test (DPOAEs)

The DPOAE test is an objective test that allows us to evaluate outer hair cell function in the inner ear for patients who may not be able to undergo a hearing test and/or to verify validity of hearing test results, as well as utility for testing patients with complaints of tinnitus.
