The effects of hearing loss can be significantly minimized if you are properly diagnosed and receive effective treatment.
Step One: The Interview
Your professional will ask questions to determine the extent of your problem and uncover any specific areas that may require further attention.
Some Typical Questions:
- Do you have a history of hearing loss in your family?
- Have you had any illnesses or injuries that might have affected your hearing?
- Have you been exposed to loud noises in your job or leisure activities?
Step Two: Hearing Examination
Your professional will conduct a hearing exam to determine whether the hearing difficulty you are experiencing could be caused by an issue that requires medical attention.
Step Three: Hearing Test
Your hearing care professional will determine the nature of your hearing loss through specialized testing. Again, a hearing test will determine whether you require a medical referral.
Step Four: Treatment Options
Referral to a Physician - If our hearing test suggests that your hearing could be helped by medicine or surgery, we will fully explain the results and refer you to the proper medical professional.
