A hearing test is the first step in determining your hearing capability. If you have a hearing loss, it will detail the extent, type, and specifics of your particular hearing loss.
Hearing tests determine the unique aspects of your hearing loss, as well as the level at which you can detect and understand speech. The results of this test will provide our hearing health professional with the details they need to accurately recommend the proper treatment.
What can you expect during a hearing evaluation?
As a mobile, in home hearing care provider, FullScope Hearing can provide hearing tests in the comfort of your own home, office or retirement living facility. We are also proud to offer a FREE initial in home/office consultation with a fitting expert.
Consultations typically lasts up to one hour. You should also allow for time for discussion with our hearing care professional to review test results and ask questions.
It is recommended that you bring a family member with you to the evaluation appointment. Most professionals agree that hearing loss is a family issue. It helps to have another supportive person at the appointment to help you understand the information and recommendations.
If the determination is made that you need hearing aids, allow for sufficient time to discuss your options. Our hearing care professional will discuss the different styles with you, such as in-the-canal, in-the-ear or behind-the-ear options. We will also use this time to talk about the various features hearing aids offer, like Bluetooth, directional microphones and masking features for noisy environments.
Above all, don't be afraid to ask questions. You will want to be clear on any information you receive so that you can be an active participant in finding hearing solutions that work best for you and your lifestyle.
