What is a Hearing Health Specialist?
A Hearing Health Specialist is professional (an audiologist or a Board-Certified hearing aid specialist) who can examine and evaluate your level of hearing loss, assess your tinnitus, and provide reliable advice on what hearing aid will match your unique hearing loss, lifestyle, and hearing needs. They treat hearing loss and are able to adjust hearing aids so that you’ll have the best in comfortable fit. They also calibrate your devices to match your exact hearing loss, so you’ll be able to hear clearly in every listening environment. Hearing Health Specialists can also provide custom hearing protection to ensure you’re staying safe during work and leisure activities.

What is a Hearing Test?
If you think you might have hearing loss it’s important to get a hearing test as soon as possible. This comprehensive test will show you exactly what sounds you can and can’t hear. During the hearing test, you’ll be asked questions about your medical history, as well as your lifestyle, to determine what kind of treatment will work best for you. The hearing test includes a non-invasive visual exam to check for any signs of infection, injury, or build-up of earwax that could be affecting your hearing. Finally, your hearing will be tested to determine what range of sounds you are able to hear, and at what volume. These results are displayed on an audiogram, and you’ll get a clear picture of your hearing health.
