Getting Started – Your Hearing Exam

When you come to Clark Audiology for a diagnostic hearing evaluation you can be sure that you will receive the best in hearing health care.  Your comfort during the testing and your understanding of the results and treatment options our our biggest concern.  We appreciate your questions and will do our best to work WITH you throughout the entire process.

When you first arrive you will meet with a staff member who will go over the necessary paperwork before the exam begins.  (You can save time by downloading and completing the paperwork beforehand.)  Please be sure to bring your insurance card(s) with you and a previous hearing test if one is available to you.

There are various parts to a hearing exam.  First we will use a video otoscope to view the ear canal to make sure that an overabundance of wax is not the reason for weakened results.  You will be able to view your canal on a computer screen and see the results as well.  Secondly, we will perform Tympanometry to make sure the middle ear is functioning properly.  This will rule out infection, perforations of the eardrum, fluid, etc.  Otoacoustic Emissions will be completed to access whether there has been any damage to the nerve fibers or hair cells of the inner ear.  So far, you don’t have to do anything!!!  During the last stage of testing, you will enter our large sound-proof booth and listen to a series of beeps, pressing a button everytime one is heard.  You will also hear a series of words which we will have you repeat.

After the testing is complete, we will move to another room to discuss your unique results.  The audiogram will be discussed in detail.  Below are some of the tools we use in helping you to understand your particular scores.  We will make certain that you understand all of the scoring and treatment options available.  This part of the visit usually takes the most time.  It is helpful to bring along a spouse or friend as it can be a lot of information.

Sometimes people think of a question they forgot to ask after they have left the office.  PLEASE, call us!  We are here for you no matter what the question, and we are happy to help.  Its that simple!
