Hearing Aid Consultations
Hearing Aid Evaluation
The hearing aid evaluation service is designed to help the patient determine the hearing instruments of choice for his or her particular hearing loss. The hearing aid evaluation requires 1 to 1 1/2 hours of testing. The purpose of the evaluation is to determine the patient’s potential to benefit from a hearing aid and determine which hearing aid style will best suit the patient’s needs.
At the hearing aid evaluation, an audiologist uses comparative tests with and without hearing aids. The process also includes counseling to help the patient understand hearing aids and the necessary steps for optimal results. The patient then receives an appropriate recommendation (prescription) for hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Check
The purpose of this visit is to evaluate the patient’s adjustment to the aid and to provide guidance and counseling regarding the use of the instrument.
Hearing Aid Measurement
This test measures the function of a hearing aid on a test instrument. It can help the audiologist determine whether the hearing aid is functioning properly.
