Complete hearing evaluations
A complete hearing test identifies auditory disorders that could cause a health concern or interfere with your ability to communicate. Following your test, we’ll give you a complete report of the results along with our recommendations. The test consists of:
Speech reception thresholds: Discovers the quietest level of speech you can hear 50 percent of the time.
Speech discrimination evaluation: Investigates your ability to discriminate speech sounds at a volume that is most comfortable for you.
Air and bone conduction testing: Helps to determine if a problem with your inner, outer or middle ear is contributing to your hearing difficulties.
Tympanometry: Through variations of air pressure in the ear canal, it determines the condition of the middle ear and the mobility of the conduction bones and the eardrum.
Other tests and procedures may include:

Cerumen (ear wax) removal (Microsuction Earwax Removal)
Ear wax can be removed from the ear by using a simple tool or, in more serious instances, with the aid of Microsuction.
It involves visual inspection of the ear canal to find obstructions, wax blockages and infections. With video otoscopy, an image of your ear canal is transferred to a screen so you can examine your ear along with the specialist.
