About the Hearing Screening Process

The consultation starts with a hearing evaluation and a detailed conversation with you regarding your needs, preferences, and lifestyle. We also offer a mobile hearing test. If that's what you opt for The Hearing Aid Doctor will arrive at your home for the hearing exam. He will discuss your particular situation and medical history.

This step is vital as it helps the doctor asses what the best solution for you would be and to discuss hearing aid options. Dr. Allen Schade will review all the critical personal information you have provided. He will also ask you specific questions to understand the different types of environments in which you might be experiencing marked hearing loss or difficulty with hearing.

He will then use an otoscope to look into your ears. It is a special instrument that allows him to get a closer look at the eardrum and ear canal. Depending on his findings, he may also perform some of these tests mentioned below:

Audiometric Test

With this hearing test, the doctor will use multiple high and low-frequency tones to determine how well you can understand conversation within a specific distance. He will also give you several words to repeat. The results of the audiometric test will help him determine the percentage of hearing loss you have. It will also help him determine your ability to hear speech and whether hearing aids will help you.
