Hearing testing

Are you concerned you may be having difficulty hearing?  Do you find it hard to understand conversations in a noisy environments. Do you have to ask people to repeat themselves? Maybe your family complains that you listen to the television or radio volume to loud. These are all common things to hear from someone who may be having difficulty hearing. If this is you, don't worry. The best thing you can do is have a complete audiological evaluation with an audiologist. The purpose of an audiological evaluation, which includes a hearing test, is to determine how well you can hear. The evaluation is quick, easy, and non-invasive and will give you peace of mind to definitively know the whether you should be concerned about your hearing.

During an audiological evaluation at Peachtree Hearing, we will review your symptoms, measure the softest sounds audible tones of different frequencies and assess your ability to discriminate different words in quiet and in background noise. Our doctors will then review your results and if necessary, create a customized and enjoyable rehabilitation plan. Peachtree Hearing’s primary focus is to help you preserve and enhance your sense of hearing. For more detailed information on what to expect during your hearing test see below.

Your Hearing Test: What to Expect

Here’s what you can expect during your appointment for a hearing test at Peachtree Hearing. When you arrive at Peachtree Hearing you will be greeted and brought to our comfortable and fun waiting room.  While waiting you will be asked to complete a survey concerning your medical history.  Your audiologist will then perform a thorough audiological evaluation, which includes the following:

Video-Otoscopic Examination
We will inspect your ear canal with a tiny video camera which allow us to see the inside of your ear with great detail. You can watch the TV screen and we will explain what you’re seeing while we perform a complete visual evaluation of your ear canal and ear drum. We will help identify if your ear canal is being blocked by wax or another obtrusive element that could be affecting your hearing.  If your ear canal is blocked by earwax or another foreign object, our doctors are professionally trained to clean your ear while keeping you as comfortable as possible.

Familiar Voice Test
If you are able to bring your spouse or a loved one with you to your appointment, we can then check your hearing and speech understanding using a tested and proven method employing their voice.

Speech Understanding Assessment
During this test we will test to see how well you are hearing conversational speech both in quiet and in the presence of background noise. Any areas of difficulty in speech understanding will be detected and help with the overall diagnosis and treatment.

Baseline Audiogram
This is the part of the test where you will step inside our sound proof booth and we will test your hearing using different tones at different frequencies.  Using our high-tech audiometer you will indicate through a button when you are hearing particular sounds.  This will allow us to scientifically plot out your hearing in accordance with clinical standards.  The baseline audiogram then shows us which sounds you’re hearing and which sounds you’re not. 


Test Results

Your doctor will review your complete hearing test results with you and determine the best course of action, if any. Should hearing aids be required, we will discuss your lifestyle, cosmetic concerns and budget needs to determine the best solution for you. Peachtree Hearing works with hearing aids that are custom-programmed to match your hearing loss and lifestyle.  Much like eyeglasses have a custom prescription to match your vision, hearing aids must be configured specially for you.  Most times we are able to custom-program a pair of hearing aids for you to try right in the office and hear the difference they make!
