People often have many questions about their hearing and hearing health, but they aren’t always sure where to start or who to trust. A diagnostic hearing evaluation can provide answers to many of these questions quickly and painlessly, so when these questions arise the best first step is to have a diagnostic hearing evaluation with a licensed audiologist. We strive to make this process as low-stress as possible for our patients by explaining each step along the way. We welcome you to bring a trusted loved one, if you prefer a second set of ears.

Our hearing evaluations involve a complete, non-invasive assessment of your hearing using state-of-the-art equipment. Our tests are designed to assess the degree of hearing loss so we can give you the best possible care.
We'll begin by asking you questions about your medical history. Then, we will inspect your ear canal and eardrum using an otoscope. This procedure is painless and noninvasive. We perform the examination to rule out any possibility of physical ear abnormalities that may lead to hearing loss.
Following these two steps, we will administer the hearing tests which are described below.
