We are proud that Associates in Ear, Nose and Throat offers hearing evaluations in sound treated rooms at each of our facilities. This makes us one of the most convenient choices for hearing tests in this region.
A basic audiological evaluation will include an audiogram, middle ear testing and an assessment of speech recognition. We test children and adults, though the process will differ slightly based on age.
When we perform an audiogram, we are creating a graph of your hearing ability. In an evaluation, one of the audiologists will introduce tones of different pitches and will ask the patient to respond as the tones get softer. We will be tracking how far beyond the normal range you can hear as the tones seemingly get softer and farther away.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule an evaluation, call (423) 209-9111.
