When you schedule a comprehensive hearing test at Melody Audiology, here’s what you can expect:

  1. Arrival and Check-In: Upon arrival at our clinic, our friendly staff will welcome you and guide you through the check-in process. We make sure to begin each appointment on time to respect your schedule.
  2. Discussion of Hearing History: Before the actual hearing test, our registered hearing aid practitioner will have a conversation with you to understand your medical and hearing history better. This will include questions about any hearing issues you are currently experiencing, your exposure to loud noises, and any relevant family history of hearing loss.
  3. Comprehensive Hearing Assessment: The hearing test itself involves a series of examinations to assess different aspects of your hearing. This typically includes an otoscopic examination (looking into your ears), pure-tone testing (listening to a series of beeps), and speech testing. Depending on your specific needs, other specialized tests may also be conducted.
  4. Discussion of Results: Once the tests are completed, the practitioner will discuss the results with you in detail. If any hearing loss is detected, they will explain the type and degree of your hearing loss and what can be done to address it.
  5. Personalized Treatment Plan: If necessary, our registered hearing aid practitioner will provide a personalized treatment plan which could include hearing aids, assistive listening devices, or strategies to protect your hearing.
