Comprehensive Hearing Assessments

Comprehensive Hearing Healthcare Begins with a Comprehensive Hearing Assessment

 

Better hearing health is impossible unless you know what challenges lie ahead. The first essential step on the path to better hearing begins with a comprehensive hearing assessment. The comprehensive hearing assessment provided by The Hearing Center of MCC starts off with a personal, professional consultation.

Trusting us begins with honesty and transparency. We want you to know exactly what to expect from us, so your consultation will include a thorough rundown of our processes.

Our compassionate, professional audiologist will ask some questions and listen to your hearing loss concerns while reviewing your medical history and family history, medications you might be taking, your lifestyle, and the goals you have for better hearing. Your consultation provides us with a common starting point, establishing honest communication and confidence as we begin the journey to healthier hearing.

After your consultation, we will conduct a hearing assessment. Our objective with these tests is to establish a baseline against which we can assess your progress, form a treatment plan, and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment, regardless of the intervention options we pursue. Your hearing assessment could include

  • Physical observation (looking for inflammation, growths, wax buildup, etc.)
  • Pure-tone diagnostic assessment (transmitting different tones and frequencies through headphones)
  • Speech testing (identifying your speech reception threshold and word understanding ability in quiet and noise)
  • Tympanometry testing (a puff of air to assess fluid on the ear, perforated eardrum, etc.)
  • Acoustic reflex tests (evaluates how the middle ear reacts to sounds)

Initial evaluations from your hearing assessment provide us with the information necessary for diagnosing your hearing capacity and prescribing treatment.

As part of our commitment to educating our patients, your audiologist will walk you through the test data and explain the meaning of each item. Any required decision-making processes will require your input, allowing you to have a voice in the treatment options and hearing device choices that best suit your unique circumstances, lifestyle, and budget.

The primary commitment of The Hearing Center team, regardless of the treatment option or device selected, is to provide continuous follow-up care, building your confidence and delivering the highest standard of hearing healthcare you can expect to find in the Pensacola community.

Comprehensive hearing care cannot happen without a comprehensive hearing assessment. If you strain to hear phone conversations, notice that you are turning up the volume more often, or cannot make out what others say when there is background noise, you could be experiencing a hearing loss.

There is no better time than today to start down the path to better hearing by filling out our form and scheduling a hearing assessment.

I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact

 

The first time I noticed signs of a hearing loss was back when I was with the Memphis Police Force on the first anti-sniper unit (SWAT) team. Shooting many rounds of guns a week led to ringing in my ears, which it seemed was the start of my hearing loss.
The Hearing Center is the very best in the business. They were the most helpful in the profession that I had seen.
Since getting my hearing aids, I have no regrets. I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact.
If you are considering using The Hearing Center, expect to be impressed by the best in the hearing aid business. It’s wonderful to hear well again and I can’t thank them enough.

I was very impressed. The people were friendly and knowledgable.

 

I first noticed my hearing loss when I was having to ask people to repeat themselves a lot. I decided to get my first hearing test and I was very impressed with the service from The Hearing Center. The people were friendly and knowledgeable.
Now, I would not be able to cope without my hearing aids. I can now carry a conversation.
I can highly recommend seeking help from The Hearing Center if you are struggling with a hearing loss.

I can hear my kids playing, I feel less tired, and I have more energy!

My hearing loss started when I was just 10 years old as a result of multiple ear infections. I was really struggling to hear, and as a result, I had to have a lot of ear construction to save my hearing. I was told that I would never be able to hear certain tones again.
For many years, I was living in a world of isolation and I believed that there was no way that I would get all of my hearing back. I had an opinion that hearing aids were for older people.
When I first approached The Hearing Center, everyone was very warm and welcoming, and it did not matter how many questions I had. They answered them and were very patient with me.
They fitted me with hearing aids and the results have been life-changing. I can hear my children. They can no longer come up behind me and scare me! I feel less tired, I have more energy, and as a result, I am losing weight.
Getting help with my hearing from The Hearing Center was the best thing I ever did!

The Hearing Center truly cares about helping me.

 

 

I have visited many different hearing care providers over the years but none compare to the level of care I have received from Dr. LaBorde and the staff at The Hearing Center.
I can honestly say they have changed my life by helping me to regain hearing clarity. I highly recommend them.
