During your initial visit, you will be asked questions about your medical and hearing history. We will use a lighted otoscope to inspect your outer ear and your ear canal for any abnormalities that may affect your hearing test results or require you to visit an ENT doctor. Next, we will conduct several tests to determine:
• Whether or not a hearing loss exists and its possible cause
• The degree and type of hearing loss and whether the loss exists in one or both ears
• The best treatment options
You will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a short distance as in a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech, and whether or not hearing aids will help you.

Cerumen (Wax) Management – Video Otoscopy
Earwax, or cerumen, is a waxy substance secreted in the ear canal. Its purpose is to protect and clean the skin of the human ear canal while protecting it from debris, bacteria and water. Sometimes the ear produces too much wax which can become impacted and press against the eardrum. This can impair the ability to hear. We can assist in the safe removal of ear wax.
