Question: What happens during a hearing test? I am nervous about having my first test next week.

Answer: There is really no reason to be nervous. From the moment you enter our office, our focus is on you, your comfort, and your well-being. Respectful of your time, our doctors call you back as quickly as possible and begin by discussing your history, your overall health, and any concerns you may have. Next, the doctor will do a painless inspection of the ear canal to monitor wax and the health of the eardrum and canal. For testing, you will wear earphones through which you will hear the doctor’s voice coaching you through the process. Afterward, the doctor will review the test and explain the results, as well as make detailed recommendations. We hope this helps you feel more at ease.
