Hearing loss can occur at any age and due to many varied reasons.
We can accurately and thoroughly assess your hearing at The Northern Hearing Health Centre with our state-of-the-art equipment and expertise.
We are your partners in hearing healthcare and are happy to walk you through the process of hearing tests and answer any questions you have.
The first question to address is who will be taking care of your hearing test at our hearing centre. You'll be working with a qualified audiologist who is a skilled, trained, and knowledgeable professional ready to help you assess your hearing and make appropriate recommendations.
An audiologist is a hearing healthcare professional dedicated to assessing and treating hearing loss for patients with various concerns. Most audiologists in Canada hold a Master's degree and some may also have a Doctorate in Audiology. Audiologists must register with the regulatory college in their province to practice in their field. Some audiologists have completed additional exams and training to become nationally certified and recognized.
Here at The Northern Hearing Health Centre, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible when walking into our office. This may be your first time having a hearing test and you might have questions or hesitations.
It does not matter if it is you, a loved one, or your child that requires a hearing test. We serve patients of all ages who may be experiencing hearing loss or simply want to check their hearing. We provide hearing assessments for ages six months and up.
We will start the hearing test appointment by getting to know you and learning about your health and hearing history. Next, we will listen to what your challenges and goals are regarding your hearing and identify in what ways we can help.
During the assessment, we will examine your ear canal to ensure that it does not look abnormal and that there are not any blockages. Then we will perform a specific test to confirm that the eardrum is moving and there are no blockages or problems behind it.
Following this test, you will then be tested in a soundproof room where you will be asked to listen and respond to tones and words which will assess different aspects of your overall hearing. After the testing is complete, we will explain the results in detail and a report will be sent to your physician if required.
We understand that you have choices when it comes to finding an audiologist and having hearing tests done. However, there are many reasons why we think you should consider us first and foremost. At The Northern Hearing Health Centre, we believe in full diagnostic hearing tests. The appointments are longer so that we can evaluate all aspects of your hearing, explain results, and make recommendations as required.
