Functional Hearing Assessment
The Path to Your Healthy Hearing Starts Here
I am committed to the highest hearing care standards in The Villages and surrounding communities. You can’t receive the best care, however, unless your Doctor of Audiology correctly diagnoses your needs. When you visit my hearing center for hearing care in The Villages, FL, I begin your journey to improved hearing with a comprehensive, real-world hearing test and consultation. This initial diagnosis helps to provide a complete picture of your unique hearing profile.
What's the Difference Between a Hearing Test & a Functional Hearing Assessment?
A hearing test typically plays a sound at different volumes and asks you whether you can hear it or not. However, this doesn’t provide a complete picture of how you hear. It tells me even less about the best way to help you.
My functional hearing assessment, on the other hand, gathers information about far more than what you hear. It also considers how you hear and why you hear the way that you do.
What Does a Functional Hearing Assessment Involve?
When you visit my hearing center in Florida, I will conduct a thorough consultation of your hearing. Your hearing consultation will use state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies to measure your ability to hear in quiet environments, noisy situations, and when multiple speakers are talking at the same time. In addition, I will be able to scientifically measure the size and shape of your ear canal and better understand how sounds are traveling through your ear to your auditory system including your brain’s ability to process sounds.
