Audiology at Northeast Georgia ENT utilizes a thorough evaluation and consultation to fully assess your hearing needs. Through a combination of state-of-the-art hearing tests and a comprehensive interview, we’re experts at identifying the best solutions that meet your priorities. Understanding your concerns and expectations for improved hearing is of utmost importance.
Your hearing evaluation will begin with a complete review of any symptoms of hearing loss you might have and a discussion of how your hearing impairment affects your daily activities. We will also review your lifestyle and specific hearing requirements to get a better sense of your needs.
Our experienced audiologists use comprehensive instruments to painlessly inspect your outer ear. Visually examining your ear helps us determine if the hearing difficulty you’re experiencing is being caused by an obstruction or if it’s due to any damage to the ear canal or eardrum.
Next, we will perform a complete battery of audiometric tests to identify the thresholds of sound you are comfortably able to hear. Using a specialized pair of headphones, we test your ability to hear various pitches and volumes of sound, as well as spoken words. These tests will also simulate real-life environments to assess your hearing ability amidst varying levels of background noise.
If the results indicate that hearing loss is present, we will provide a complete consultation to educate you and develop a customized hearing solution that meets your needs. Contact us to schedule your first visit with us today!
