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 to Our Office
You will be greeted by one of our friendly patient care representatives as soon as you walk into our office. We want you to feel at home, so we may offer you some hot coffee or cold water to help you relax and make yourself comfortable. We try to avoid making you rush to fill out paperwork while you wait, which is why we provide patient forms that you can fill out and submit online before coming in for your appointment (if you haven’t done so, you should plan to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment). When your audiologist is ready for you, our patient care representative will guide you to the consultation room and provide whatever you need to help you relax.
#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.

With hearing loss impacting 1 in 5 of us, the data suggests that at least one special person in our lives are struggling with hearing loss. The challenge is that it's often difficult for these people to admit that they have a challenge with their hearing or be open to seeking help.
That's why we have developed a free white-paper to help you to understand the different ways that you can support a loved one and encourage them to get the help that they need.
