Get to Know Your Audiologist

An audiologist is a specialized doctor focused on the diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of hearing and balance disorders. Although hearing loss is most common in patients over 50, it can happen to anyone, and our audiologists are experts in treating patients at every stage of life. 

If you are experiencing the sudden emergence of hearing loss symptoms, your hearing loss is getting worse, you have unexplained ear pain, you are hearing persistent ringing (tinnitus), or you are having balance issues, an appointment with your audiologist in The Woodlands, TX should be you next stop.

Are You Experiencing Signs of Hearing Loss?

  • Do you find yourself turning up the volume on the TV, radio, or stereo to the point that others are uncomfortable with the volume?
  • Do you find it difficult to follow conversations in loud, crowded rooms, like restaurants or bars?
  • Do you need others to repeat themselves several times before you’re able to understand what they’re saying?
  • Do you find it hard following conversations while riding in a car?
  • Do you sometimes find that you continuously raise your voice during conversations until you’re nearly shouting without noticing? 

If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions, it is time to visit your Texas ENT Specialists audiologist for a hearing evaluation. The sooner we are able to evaluate the issue and make a diagnosis, the sooner you can receive treatment and get back to living your busy life.

What To Expect During Your Hearing Evaluation

Your audiologist may perform several painless tests and procedures during your hearing evaluation, including but not limited to: 

  • Pure Tone: A test that measures hearing levels in each ear.
  • Speech Discrimination: A test to discern how well you hear and understand speech.
  • Bone Conduction: A test measuring how your inner ears are responding to sound.
  • Tympanometry: A measurement how your eardrums’ movement.
  • Otoscopy: A procedure when your doctor checks the ear canal for physical obstructions. 

Adults ages 50 and older should get hearing tests every three years, but they are a useful tool at any age if symptoms of hearing loss appear.
