Hearing Tests & Assessments for Adults
Hearing tests can be done for a variety of reasons. We frame our appointments based on our Patient’s needs, so that they get the most appropriate assessment and benefit from the right amount of testing and counselling.
Regardless of the type of assessment you may need, we pride ourselves on using a medical-based, patient-centered and holistic approach in our appointments, meaning that we always take the time to look at the big picture to determine if your symptoms are related to your hearing system or if they are impacted by other factors. We also have a large network of health professionals to refer to should you require further help in your rehabilitation solution.
Our ability to make our patients feel at ease, our knowledge in testing and our ability to counsel and explain the results also makes us a uniquely qualified team of Audiologists to work with.
Employment Hearing Test
This appointment is for Patients who require a hearing test for a work application. Ex: Pilots, RCMP, etc. This appointment includes the completion of all required documents and reports.
Medical Hearing Assessment
This appointment is meant for Patients who experience ear-level symptoms such as pressure, blockage or pain in their ears, and also experience hearing difficulties possibly due to these symptoms. This would also be for a Patient who needs a hearing assessment before seeing an Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist, and/or to rule out any other medical conditions. This appointment includes a thorough medical report for your Physician or Specialist, if required.
Hearing Assessment for Hearing Difficulties & Hearing Loss
This appointment is meant for Patients who are experiencing hearing difficulties, who are looking to figure out what may be causing them and who may be looking for help.
During these consultations, we look at all the factors that may impact your hearing, how you process speech sounds in noisy environments, as well as the integrity of the hair cells in their inner ear; through more advanced equipment and counselling tools. Our hearing assessments provide our Patients with an in-depth comprehension of their hearing, as well as the reasons why they may be struggling.
We structure our appointments so that we have additional time to provide appropriate counselling, as well as discuss acoustics rehabilitation options if required, such as hearing aids, reviewing strategies or perhaps needing to be referred to other health professionals.
Detailed medical and rehabilitation recommendations can be made after this consultation, and also includes a medical report if required.
