What Happens During a Hearing Test?

When The Hearing Aid Doctor arrives at your home for your hearing exam he will begin with a history of your particular situation. This is important so that you and Dr Schade can best assess what is your most beneficial course of action.

When your hearing exam begins, Dr Allen Schade will review key personal information with you and ask you a few questions to discover the specific types of environments where you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing problems.

Next, Dr Schade may look into your ears with an otoscope, a special instrument to see the ear canal and the eardrum, and/or perform one of the tests below.

Audiometric Test

During this hearing test, you’ll be tested using a series of low and high frequency tones to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a short distance (as in a conversation). We’ll also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and if hearing aids will help you.

Understanding Your Hearing Test Results

The Hearing Aid Doctor will record the results of your hearing test on a form called an audiogram, which he will review with you. The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. Dr Schade will show you the type, pattern and degree of hearing loss, as well as the percentage of normal conversational speech that you’re still able to hear. He will then relate these results to your concerns about your hearing.

Next, The Hearing Aid Doctor will consider treatment solutions. You can count on Dr Schade to take the time necessary to understand your concerns so that he can provide you with everything you need to make an informed personal decision.
