What Most People Don’t Know about Hearing Assessments

Some people believe that a hearing loss is a negative sign.

But we see it differently because with most hearing losses being a result of the lifestyle that you’ve lived, we see a hearing loss as a clear sign that you’ve lived a life full of fruitful and rich experiences.

In the same way that the faster that you drive a car, the more likely that you are to have to replace the tires – your ears have had to work hard to keep up with the life that you’ve experienced and this has slowly taken its toll on your level of hearing.

One of the biggest challenges that we face as hearing care experts is that far too many people don’t recognize the first signs of hearing loss and often come to us when it’s too late.

Whereas if they had visited us upon recognizing the first signs, we could have taken the right precautions to protect their level of hearing and prolong their hearing health.

This is the reason that we strongly encourage routine hearing assessments.

If you’ve never had a hearing assessment or it’s been over two years since your last assessment, we strongly encourage you to pay us a visit.

A hearing assessment is quick, non-invasive, and you get the results immediately.

What Happens at a Hearing Assessment?

#1 - A Warm Welcome

You’ll be invited into a comfortable waiting room and served with delightful hot coffee as you complete some paperwork so that we can understand your medical history and get all the information that we need prior to your appointment. 

#2 - Get to Know You

We’ll then invite you into a private room for a friendly conversation to understand what has brought you for a hearing assessment and what your concerns are.

#3 - Start Your Assessment

We’ll pop some headphones on you (like the picture to the right) and we’ll play a range of sounds at different frequencies. All you have to do is let us know when you hear a sound. This allows us to test if you’re missing any frequencies to plot the results on an audiogram.

#4 - Review Your Results

We’ll then review the results of your audiogram to see if you have any level of hearing loss. If we find that you do have a hearing loss, then we’ll be able to discuss your options with you in a relaxed, pressure-free environment.

I love Erika. She is so nice and thorough and explains everything and answers any questions. I have never felt rushed by her!
