Diagnostic Hearing Testing for Adults

A behavioral diagnostic hearing test takes place in a sound-treated booth and comprises of the audiologist presenting different stimuli to an individual to assess their ability to hear. The evaluation takes approximately 30-60 minutes.

How is a small child’s hearing assessed?
We provide diagnostic hearing evaluations for children of all ages and as early as two days after birth. The age of the child will determine which tests are necessary in order to establish the integrity of the child’s hearing system.
Hearing Aid Fitting Process
Hearing Aid Evaluation

Once a hearing assessment has been completed, the audiologist may recommend hearing aids. The main purpose of hearing aids is to amplify sound and to improve the wearer’s perception of speech clarity. Hearing aids fit either behind the ear or inside the ear. There are various shapes, sizes and strengths available.

Evaluation & Fitting Process First visit

The first encounter with your audiologist:

This discussion ordinarily occurs at your initial consultation after your hearing evaluation is complete.
Your communicative and listening needs and the impact of your hearing impairment on your lifestyle are further considered.
Your need for a hearing aid and why you would experience benefit from one or two devices is explained.
Hearing aid options are then discussed. At Shamim Ebrahim Inc., the audiologists work closely with various hearing aid companies so that the most suitable device for your hearing loss may be selected.
An impression of your ear will be taken if necessary.
