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 From The Comfort of Your Vehicle

Since the pandemic began, we have had to change how we see patients; our waiting room has been closed, and patients have been encouraged to wait in their car until they are invited in for their appointment.

But what we have accidentally learned is that this approach actually works far better.

It means that appointments aren’t rushed, you can receive the one-to-one focus that you deserve without distractions and it ensures that the schedule runs much smoother.

This means that when normality finally returns, our waiting room will not.

Instead, we’ll be keeping the current approach of encouraging you to stay in your vehicle.

When you pull into a parking bay, you can simply call us at (541) 612-7555 (the phone number is also on signs throughout the parking lot), and we’ll come and get you when we’re ready to see you.

You can then walk straight in for your appointment and be seen right away, ensuring that you’re not waiting around and the time spent with you can be maximized.

#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!
