What to expect at your first appointment

During your visit with your Audiologist you will have a thorough hearing exam which includes the following tests:

*Otoscopic examination* (examination of the outer ear and external ear canal.)
*Tympanometry* (analysis of the middle ear.)
*DPOAE’s* (Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions, which tells us the function of the inner ear)
*Full Traditional Hearing Test* (listening for beeps and speech stimulus.)

We suggest that you bring your spouse, a family member or a friend with you to your appointment if possible. This allows our Audiologists to test how you hear your loved one’s voice.

Our kind and caring Audiologists will guide you through each exam to determine the nature, extent and solutions for your specific hearing loss.
