Who Can Benefit from a Hearing Evaluation?

Having a hearing evaluation is the first step towards improving your hearing. Hearing loss is the third most common health problem affecting adults (after hypertension and arthritis). The ability to hear well affects overall physical and emotional well-being. Studies show that improved hearing can raise self-esteem and increase your sense of community and belonging. Improving any potential hearing issue starts with a proper diagnosis by one of our licensed, certified audiologists. We offer various tests that are aimed at accurately determining any physical or cognitive factors affecting your hearing health.

How Do I Know If I Need a Hearing Evaluation?

  • Do you find yourself asking others to repeat themselves?
  • Do people seem to mumble more often, making it hard for you to understand them?
  • Do you have problems understanding women’s or children’s voices?
  • Do you have difficulty following conversations while riding in a car?
  • Do you find yourself turning up the volume on the TV, radio, or stereo?
  • Do you find it difficult to follow a conversation in crowded rooms?
  • Do you want – or need – to sit closer to the front in church, theaters, or auditoriums?
  • Do you sometimes discover that you have raised your speaking voice during normal conversation and seem to be almost shouting?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should see an audiologist for a hearing evaluation. Our audiologists are experts in hearing testing and hearing aids, and can accurately help you find answers.

What to Expect During Your Hearing Evaluation

Your hearing evaluation will be conducted by a licensed, certified audiologist. Our hearing evaluations are performed in a comfortable, stress-free environment and will provide a baseline understanding of your overall hearing health. This will allow us to recommend further treatments if necessary. Your evaluation will consist of the following: 

  • Otoscopy: Looking into your ear canal to determine if there is any obstruction.
  • Tympanometry: Testing how well your eardrum moves.
  • Pure Tone: Testing how well you hear sounds in each ear.
  • Speach Discriminations: Testing how well you understand words.
  • Bone Conduction: Testing how well your inner ear responds to sounds.

Texas ENT is amazing!  I went in on my planning period from school with a very limited amount of time and they were able to get me in quick!  The doctor explained my issues clearly, took great care to answer questions, and was very considerate of my time constraints. I appreciate his diligent care and the kind office staff that fit me in the day of the appointment. I am recommending Texas ENT to everyone in need of an awesome ear, nose, and throats group and doctor!
