If you suspect you may be suffering from hearing loss, the first step is to schedule a hearing test with one of our qualified hearing instrument specialists.
Having your hearing tested may cause feelings of anxiety or nervousness, but rest assured that the exams performed by our patient care specialist will be non-invasive and pain-free. So what should you expect when it comes to having your hearing tested?
Gathering Background Information
The first step to having your hearing tested is to provide the hearing instrument specialist with a list of your symptoms and any particular words or sounds you’re struggling to hear. We may also request some comprehensive information about your medical background to find out what issues you’re facing and how they are impacting your day-to-day activities. Once this information has been collected, our hearing instrument specialist will conduct the hearing tests.
The Hearing Tests
Our hearing instrument specialist will conduct a series of tests to determine if you have hearing loss and might benefit from the use of hearing aids. The series of tests our specialist conducts will depend on your symptoms and what they’re looking for, but will always be simple and comfortable. They generally involve wearing headphones and raising your hand or tapping a button when you hear a series of sounds and pitches. These tests should not take an extended amount of time and will provide the professional with important results to help gauge your hearing health.
Hearing Test Results
Our hearing instrument specialist will examine the results of your hearing tests to determine if hearing aids are the proper course of treatment for your issues. They will then discuss with you which sounds you’re struggling to hear, and if hearing aids can improve your listening experience. Hearing aids are the most common form of hearing loss treatment and provide wearers with the confidence and capability to hear the world around them again. Our hearing instrument specialist will walk you through all the hearing aid options available to you, from devices that work behind the ear to smaller ones worn in the ear canal.
Having your hearing tested is a simple evaluation performed by a qualified hearing specialist and will provide you the peace of mind knowing whether or not you need to seek treatment. This service is offered free at Beck Hearing Aid Centre, with no obligation to buy. Don’t put it off any longer; schedule an appointment with one of our hearing instrument specialists and get your results immediately.
