Hearing evaluation appointments with Columbia Hearing Centers are fast, simple and painless. They are designed to assess the sensitivity of your hearing and reveal the type, extent and frequency of your hearing loss. Your hearing professional will use the information collected at this visit to develop an effective treatment plan.
There are several different tests used to evaluate the hearing of Spokane patients. Your board certified hearing instrument specialist will choose which tests to administer depending on your medical history and your answers to a series of preliminary hearing health questions. Some of the most common hearing tests are:
- Audiometry Test
- Bone Conduction Test
- Word Recognition Test
The results of your hearing evaluation, which should take under 30 minutes to complete, will be charted on an audiogram, analyzed by your Hearing Instrument Specialist and clearly explained to you after testing. You will learn whether you have trouble hearing high or low frequency sounds and which category of severity your hearing loss falls into. There are seven potential categories, ranging from normal to profound. Please give us a call today if you would like to schedule a hearing evaluation.
