Hearing Aid Evaluations. With the right hearing aids, you can restore your hearing to a level that enables you to return to the activities and lifestyle you enjoy most. Undergoing a professional hearing aid evaluation with an audiology doctor is an important step in the process of finding the best hearing aids to meet your needs
What to Expect at a Hearing Aid Evaluation Appointment
At your hearing aid evaluation, Dr. Elly Pourasef, Dr. Crystal Wiggins, or Dr. Hannah Dearth professional ear doctors in Houston, will first discuss your symptoms, medical background, and hearing goals to get a clear picture of your specific case. Then, she will administer a series of hearing tests to measure the type and severity of your hearing loss.
It’s not unusual for patients to be a bit nervous about hearing tests, especially if they’ve never gone through the process, but most are surprised to learn it is a simple and straightforward experience.
Generally, you’ll be provided with headphones (or other devices) that will emit sounds of varying volumes and frequencies. The tinnitus doctor will track the sounds you are able to hear (and those you cannot), then provide you with a detailed report of your hearing capacity. This report is then combined with details of your medical history, including factors such as heredity, sound exposure, and ear disease.
Your doctor will explain your hearing report in detail, offering her professional recommendation for the best hearing aids for your case.
Real Ear Measurement (REM)
Memorial Hearing provides Real Ear Measurement (REM), an advanced approach that is considered the gold standard of hearing aid performance. While not all audiologists utilize Real Ear Measurement, we consider it to be key in providing the ultimate in patient satisfaction.
REM is used to determine whether a patient’s hearing aids are delivering the exact amplification levels needed for optimal hearing quality. Instead of simply relying on the algorithm used by the hearing aids’ programming software, REM makes it possible to analyze the full spectrum of frequencies objectively to engineer precision-level amplification. As a result, your hearing aids will be fine-tuned to provide the best possible hearing improvement, even if you’re faced with severe hearing loss.
