Your First visit to Parker Hearing Institute.
The test is an assessment our hearing professional makes of your hearing, nothing more.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
You will be greeted by our front desk and asked to fill out several forms, including those that record your personal information, medical history, and insurance verification. To save time, you may download these patient info forms right here on our site (click here), print out at home and bring the forms to your first appointment.
You meet our hearing professional, and he or she will ask you some “lifestyle” questions that are designed to discover the specific types of environments in which you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing problems.
We may look into your ears by using an otoscope. This instrument is used to see the ear canal and the eardrum and whether or not there is earwax obstructing the canal. We can do this by video, and you can SEE your ear canal .
If you fail the preliminary hearing screening (FREE for a limited time) involving conversational-volume speech, you will be asked if you want a comprehensive diagnostic hearing test in our state-of-the-art dead-quiet rooms.
You will wear professional headphones, and you’ll see your hearing professional through triple-paned glass. Our computers will feed you quiet tones (frequencies) in each ear, and you will acknowledge when you hear them by raising the correct hand.
Don’t attempt to fool us, we have friendly techniques to keep you honest. We then use specific speech at different volumes to hone in on your hearing challenges. During this comprehensive test we create an audiogram of your SPECIFIC hearing.
Your “Test” Results
The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. You will be shown the type, pattern, and degree of hearing loss, as well as the amount of normal conversational speech that you are still able to hear.
The next step is to consider treatment solutions. We have a consult/conversation. You can count on us to take the time necessary to understand your concerns so that we can provide you with everything you need to make an informed personal decision. This is where Parker Hearing Institute shines. We pride ourselves on our caring, empathetic hearing care. We have treated more than 40,000 customers with this renowned care.
