Our Hearing Healthcare Services
Make an appointment today to discover your hearing status and what can be done about it.
At Greentree Hearing and Audiology, a typical initial appointment involves three steps: a diagnostic hearing evaluation, tympanometric testing and, if hearing loss is revealed, a hearing aid consultation. Make an appointment today to discover your hearing status and what can be done about it.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
Complete diagnostic hearing testing is done in a sound booth in a noise-controlled environment. This involves patient responses to auditory stimuli in order to diagnose frequency-specific sensitivity. Spoken words are also used to determine speech understanding in ideal conditions. Testing is simple, fast and pain-free. The results of your hearing test will be used to determine the best path forward.
Hearing Aid Evaluation
If diagnostic testing reveals the need for amplification, a hearing aid evaluation will be conducted to determine the most appropriate type of device for your particular hearing loss and lifestyle needs. Since there are many, many hearing aids and a wide array of manufacturers to choose from, it is important that you have the most updated and unbiased information to make your decision.
Tympanometric testing is done to determine middle-ear and Eustachian tube function. This test tells us whether or not your eardrum is intact, if your middle ear pressure is within normal limits and if the tube that connects your middle-ear to your throat is functioning properly. In many cases, this test can also help provide evidence of fluid within the middle ear.
