Hearing Aid Testing and Exams

Complete hearing tests are quick and painless, lasting anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour.

Learn the five main stages

Most of us don't give much thought to our auditory ability until it begins to fail.

That's when we start to realize how important our hearing is, both for communication and maintaining quality of life. Understanding the significance and gravity of your hearing loss is the first step in taking action before any permanent damage can take hold or progress. At our clinic, we proudly provide comprehensive hearing assessments for people of all ages – from babies and young children to the elderly – conducted by a team of hearing healthcare specialists ensuring accuracy and consistency with every test. For anyone who suspects they may have issues with their hearing, getting a professional hearing test done is critical in their journey to better hearing and auditory well-being.

Getting a hearing test may seem daunting, but it's quite a brief, straightforward process.

An audiologist or hearing specialist will perform a number of different assessments, which are comprised of various diagnostic procedures used to evaluate your ears' condition and hearing abilities. These tests help identify any hearing issues and guide the audiologist in determining the best treatment options.

During the test, our auditory healthcare professionals will examine your ears and record your response to various tones and frequencies. Additionally, they will ask about your family's hearing loss history and other medical information before conducting any of the tests. Depending on your individual hearing requirements, further testing may be required.

Medical History Review

During this stage, the audiologist will gather information about your past and current medical conditions, including any medications you may be taking, as well as your family medical history.


An otoscopy is a commonly performed procedure that hearing healthcare professionals use to examine the ear canal and tympanic membrane for any signs of physical damage or obstruction.


Tympanometry is a diagnostic test that measures the movement of the eardrum in response to changes in air pressure.

Speech Testing

Speech testing is a vital procedure when it comes to assessing the extent and nature of hearing loss.

Air and Bone Conduction Testing

Like speech testing, air and bone conduction assessments are essential stages of comprehensive hearing exams.
