Complete Hearing Evaluation
Our certified audiologist will perform a comprehensive battery of tests to determine the health of your auditory system, the status of your hearing and explain the results.
If a hearing loss is identified the audiologist will recommend one of two options. If there is a medical solution you will be referred to your family physician or an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. If there is no medical solution a hearing aid will be recommended.
We encourage other family members to participate as it is helpful to discuss the hearing loss with everyone concerned. Families and friends must learn new communication tools in order to better live with someone with hearing loss.
Hearing Aid Evaluation
Once a hearing loss has been identified that cannot be medically corrected, a hearing aid may be recommended. The audiologist will make the evaluation based on the hearing loss, lifestyle and needs. dB Audiology works with all available manufacturers in Canada and only recommends Class 2 Medical Devices.
Hearing Aid Fitting
Unlike eyeglasses, hearing aids are not an instant fit solution. They need to be programmed according to the hearing loss and may require follow-up appointments for further fine tuning. For first time users it may take an adjustment period to get used to all of the new sounds, like living near the airport, your brain needs time to filter out the sounds you dont want versus those you wish to hear.
