Did you know that more Americans suffer from hearing problems (and other related ear conditions) than heart disease, paralysis, blindness, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis combined? This knowledge is absolutely staggering and should be taken into consideration when it comes to your hearing health.
At Fullerton Hearing Center, we begin every journey back to healthy hearing with a quick and easy hearing evaluation. It helps us to clarify the source of your hearing loss, its severity, and which solutions will best meet your needs.
When you visit us for a hearing evaluation, we’ll review your medical history, current symptoms, and your hearing needs. Your physical ear will be examined with an otoscope to look for any injuries or blockages inside your ear.
Next, your hearing will be evaluated with a series of audiometric tests. You will be asked to wear a special set of earphones, and to signal when you can hear the various sounds our tests emit. We’ll test your ability to hear across a broad range of frequencies and volumes, and you may be asked to repeat different words that you hear to help determine if any pitches and tones of speech are not being heard. Sometimes we perform this test in the presence of background noise.
When these tests are complete, we will carefully review your results with you. At Fullerton Hearing Center, our staff will take the time to explore your options for hearing devices if they are needed, and we will never pressure you into making a choice that’s not right for you.
We want our care to reflect your personal lifestyle! Contact us today to learn more about your current hearing ability.
