Hearing Device Candidacy

A comprehensive hearing test is administered to the patient to evaluate hearing in one or both ears. The test will determine if hearing has been lost, and the physician will then implement another medical exam to rule out any other medical conditions that could authorize intervention. The patient will then be informed of hearing device options, the condition their hearing is in, and how their hearing will work with the hearing device recommendation. Some hearing devices require a custom mold for the ear piece. If needed, the patient will take an impression of the inside of their ear to best fit their hearing device to their ear.

After the selection of the hearing device, the patient will schedule a fitting appointment around two weeks later. At this appointment, the audiologist will enter the patient’s hearing loss information into their computer system and make adjustments based on the hearing aid experience. The audiologist will also show the patient how to operate their new hearing device for everyday use.
