You have made the decision to move towards better hearing. The professionals at Superior Hearing Centre are here to help you through each stage of the process to better hearing.
Step One: The Consultation
You will meet with our audiologist or hearing instrument specialist to accomplish the following:
Extensive interview where your specific hearing concerns will be discussed
Examination of each ear utilizing advanced diagnostics to ensure a complete picture of your hearing
Complete hearing evaluation, including speech testing
Step Two: Recommendation
Based on the initial conversation and results of your hearing examination, our hearing health professionals will determine the nature and extent of your hearing loss. They will then discuss their recommendations with you.
This discussion is important for understanding your hearing loss and what you can expect from hearing aids if they are recommended for you. Effective communication strategies may be discussed with you as well.
The following will be taken in consideration:
The hearing evaluation results
Your lifestyle and listening needs (active lifestyle, long periods of time spent in noisy rooms, need to hear television more clearly, etc.)
Your specific needs (ease in handling, technology preference, hearing aid style preference)
Step Three: Hearing instrument order
If hearing aids are recommended and you decide to proceed with ordering the type that will best meet your needs:
Impressions of your ears may be taken
A fitting appointment will be scheduled so that the hearing aids can be programmed to meet your hearing loss and specific needs.
