Do you know what to expect at your first appointment with HearingLife? 

A hearing assessment is the first step to see if you have hearing loss. A licensed hearing care provider will inspect your ears and use various methods to check your hearing. You will sit in a comfortable soundproof room or sound booth and wear headphones. Then we will ask you to listen to and respond to various tones, speech sounds and voices.

Your responses will be recorded on an audiogram and the results will help indicate if you have hearing loss or not. We are happy to answer any questions and fully review your results with you. After that, we can discuss next steps.

Generally a hearing assessment and consultation takes less than an hour. Learn more about your hearing when you visit us.
