Diagnostics & Consulting
When it comes to diagnosis, the specialists at the Oakville Hearing Centre will perform comprehensive hearing tests to determine the nature and extent of our patients' hearing loss.
Hearing tests are designed to determine whether you can hear within the normal range, and if not, which portions of your hearing frequencies are affected, and to what degree.
Your complete diagnostic hearing test will include a full assessment of your hearing ability and your ability to understand speech, as well as an assessment of your outer, middle, and inner ear. Your hearing test will take approximately 30 minutes to complete, depending on the degree and type of your hearing loss.
When you arrive for your exam, you will begin by filling out your personal information and medical history forms, and your insurance form.
Your audiologist will review your personal information with you, and ask you questions designed to determine the environments and circumstances in which you are experiencing difficulty hearing.
Your audiologist will then examine your ear canal and the ear drum, and perform a series of hearing tests to ascertain the type and degree of your hearing loss.
The results of your tests will be recorded on an audiogram form in frequencies and decibels.
Together, you and your audiologist will review the type, pattern and degree of hearing loss reflected in your tests, and the percentage of conversational speech you can hear. Based on these results, your audiologist will recommend treatment options.
